I wonder what the battery duration would look like. If such a device lasts a day in "e-ink mode" (I know the term is not exactly correct), I would be perfectly content with it. Charging it once a day is not a bigge (over night?).

Let's call it "reflective mode". You see...the screen reflects the light of outside sources in that mode, rather than transmitting or emitting its own light. It's not "e-ink" or really anything like E-Ink, except for being reflective, which LCDs have done for many years before E-Ink existed.

The 160-hour figure is rather ridiculous, and highly, highly unlikely even with good low-power boards. 160 hours in standby, which means the screen is off and the device is not actively in use, is possible.
