I mean I downloaded the book last night, plugged it in and left it plugged in for six hours. Than I took it with me when I left the house this morning - it was at full charge then. By lunch time when I went to read, it was about half and in the course of reading the book it dropped down to completely dead.

So if you have a lot of new pages - I probably had at least 15 new books on it - it takes a long time to index them and is battery intensive enough that you have to keep it charged significantly longer than six hours. Which I wouldn't have realized before this, so I mention it.
