The first firmware had 6-7 days with the Cybook on all the time. The firmware release with the bad time had around 3 days. In later releases they managed to increase it to around 4 days but it is still not as good as in the original release.
You seam to be reading a lot, or have a faulty batery, because i can't manage to empty the battery in such a short time.
My Cybook is down at 70%, after 3 day, and I spent some time reading.
I would say it hold 2 weeks, with about 2 hours reading / day.
