What brightness do you have your screeen set to? The lighting uses many times more power at maximum brightness than at mid brightness-levels.
Brightness 12-14 usually.
I have tried somehow casually, but I get very inconsistent results.
I think it has a lot to do with what/how I read. I noticed that on days I just sit down and read a book linearly, battery consumption is not high.
But, on days I flip back-and-forth on the WSJ, the battery drains much faster during the same reading time.

But one thing I know is that my reading habits were the same on my KT - and I used to get the same subscriptions. So I think that means that it is, after all, the screen that makes the difference.
