I suppose if you had several tablets and spread out usage among them, the battery life would be less of a problem.
That is one benefit of the iPad over the KF - it does have a considerably longer battery life. I routinely get 12h of actual use from a single charge, and that's with heavy internet usage. Certainly enough to last an entire day.
