I exchanged it and the new unit has no battery quirks. It can play video with wifi off for more than 8 hours. It actually drains all the way down - no low battery shut offs while showing high percentages.
Thanks for that info. The batter went down to 34% and I was only reading an ebook for a few hours each night! No wifi, no other running apps, all forced closed.

It is over 30 days, probably 60 by now or more. Not sure what I can do now. Mine is the 7" version, but still the battery is very unpredictable!!

What kind of battery test? I have switched off between HD battery and paid Gsam versions because my battery was acting flakey, thought it was each app. Guess not.
