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.
I chatted with Amazon today, and told them the battery problem. They are sending me a new one. So I hope my new one does not act quirky too. They said I should be getting much better battery life. Mine would be good some days, and then some days it was dead. Just from reading a book!

Thanks for the suggestion. Now I get to reset the old one and start over on a new one. and pack up the old one and ship back. It will be worth it if my new battery is good.
