Nope -- once it drops below the 1/4 mark, plan on charging pretty soon. I did run mine to the point where it flashed a warning that the battery needed to be charged. I didn't -- just put the thing to sleep with the Alt-Aa key press, thinking I'd just use it later until it quit. Next morning, it was dark. Recharged & it wouldn't power on until I used the forced reset with a paper-clip.
But -- with the antenna turned off and reading from 2-6 hours a day, I easily get 4-8 days on a single charge. Turning on the antenna means needing to charge every-other day, but I don't try to use the Kindle to surf the net. I only use the antenna for deliberately downloading content from Amazon, MobileRead, or Feedbooks.
