Huh. You must have a bad battery, or are running it with screen at full brightness (I keep mine at maybe 20-25% most of the time and it's still more than bright enough). In a 5-hour session of reading (both comics and a regular novel) while streaming music over wi-fi the other day, the battery only got down to around 40% for me. So far, the Arc is turning out to be a plug it in before going to bed type of device for me, even with wi-fi on.
