That's my understanding. iRex has said on their forum that it takes a couple cycles before you will see the full efficiency.

question 2: does anyone have a clue how long it should last given that i mostly use my iliad to read a paper once a day (Meaning i will have my stylus out, but generally not near the tablet while i'm reading), and lightly annotating while reading books, usually in portrait but sometimes in landscape mode. i also tend to take fairly long pauses between pageflips, or read something, then type stuff out that comes to mind while reading (thus effectively idling)
i get about 8-9 hours atm doing this, and i thought the v2 should've been better than that?
Just having the pen out (not even writing with it) will cause increased battery drain. There's a layer of the screen for the pen usage which is activated when you remove the pen, and then deactivated when the pen is back in the holder. I know that just reading (pen in the holder, not using memory cards) should give you around 15 hours with the v2.
