8 hours per se is not a concern (though that is precisely why I can't cross the Atlantic having less than 2 gadgets - I need full 10 hours worth of performance without recharging).
THE concern is 8 hours life with wi-fi off given Amazon's great reliance on the cloud storage. If you have only 8Gb of memory (in reality, even less, coz OS+apps will eat something), then you do have to use Amazon's cloud thingy a lot, and that will eat you battery life.
I wouldn't mind 8 hours if I had an SD slot there.
