I get a little over a day, so if I forget to charge it at night, it's game 
over somewhere early next day (have a spare battery or a microUSB source on 
the ready if you're as forgetful as I am). Intensive web and OpenGL sucks it 
dry real quick, but haven't yet measured it for exact numbers. I also suspect 
having 5 IM accounts with ~700 contacts doesn't help either. Have not tried a 
video marathon (yet). Wifi always on, GPS off, and I don't use GSM/3G data at 
all (actually disabled 3G in the data options in hope of better battery 
times). Completely different battery use-case than the N8x0, much more like a 
phone (whereas my N810 used to last me 3-4 days).

PS. Somebody also made it possible to charge when battery completely dry (not 
always possible on previous tablets :( ), thanks for that :)
