Uhhhmmm, I'm not sure. You mean you had it sleeping, and switched it on in the mornig, checked, put it back to sleep, and did the same in evening right? No off-mode. So two checks in 24 hours. I think it might be worth checking more regularly, to prevent it sleeping >12 (10?) hours in one go. As davidfor mentioned there *might* be something going on after a certain amount of hours sleep. So say, have it sleeping, check in the morning, midday and just before you go to bed, at least?

Having said that, I thought I was getting better battery life doing that. However, my Glo dropped to 0% (Please charge...) last night, giving me only 109 hours (4.5 days) of use from 100% to 0%

I did see a difference this time when I plugged it in though. I made sure I started it up from "Please charge..." to completely empty the battery. I was able to turn it on four (!!) times, so there must still have been a lot of battery reserve left. And when I plugged it in, the percent was actually at 1%, like it should be, instead of 11% or 33% right away like I saw with my first Glo. So. Although I have bad results right now, I'm still hopeful this battery is better than my last... though, actually, 4.5 days... pff that's ridiculous.

Nooooo

Thanks for doing that. Sounds like my perfect Olde Touch results. I want.
