Absolutely

I take my ereader away with me every holiday with no need to recharge. I have to recharge my tablet every day when it is being used.

But a one hour train/bus ride ought not to create significant drain on a tablets battery life. Personally, like a good number of people, they might find the tablet weight being the main issue. I would hate to have to hold my iPad2 in a reading position for an hour, a feat most easily achieved with a ereader.
