BABM Screen Time

If you go to the main BABM Table, you will see a number called "Screen" time. Note that number before you do a full charge. That is the actual hours and minutes the last full charge lasted.

Mine is usually 5:30 (hours:minutes) or near to that amount. When I go to a Bible Study, I sometimes get only 4:49 since I am constantly using touches to change Bible verse locations in my Tecarta Bibles. I leave WiFi on all the time and charge between 10% and 20% remaining charge. I have noticed WiFi uses much less juice compared to Screen since the 6.3 upgrade. WiFi use used to match Screen use but now its only 80% of screen use.

That Screen time number has not varied substantially after the installation of firmware version 6.3 from before it.

Make sure your BABM Preferences say to measure from last full charge.

If you are getting a lot less battery time, then your battery may be defective and you should call Amazon CS for a replacement.
