Some tablets lose 1-2% a day; XDA has reports of 8-10% in 8 hours.
The battery usage stats say that the display (backlight?) consumed 87% of the energy usage. It is on automatic brightness, used inside so it is not very bright. Wifi is on most of the time though. You cannot expect a light-emitting display to have a battery charge that lasts like on an eink device.
