I read some reviews on newegg that said the Jetbook got terrible battery life (5 hrs instead of 20) and had to get a replacement. Has anyone here experienced that problem?
I'm on about 10 months now and have no problem with the battery and it definately lasts longer than 5 hours. I've sat reading all rainy weekend day. I haven't measured but my gut is that it'll go about a day and a half of almost non-stop reading before I have to plug it in (so... 15 hours ish.) No problem for me since I need to sleep at some point.

What format displays the best on the Jetbook/Jetbook Lite and about how fast does it take to load ebooks?
I like ePub (and I think RTF). I've found other format sometimes have margin/wrapping issues, extra spaces, extra carriage returns, font funkiness (`, " and -- sometimes having issues in translation), or the pain of font size vs. displays size and scrolling. IIRC ePub flows fine every time.
