I have often put in 5 hours of use in a single afternoon on my Jetbook. Worst I've seen, I was into a series of very good books. I'd charged overnight, read for the next 2 days pretty much nonstop. I was going, "Huh? I just charged it" till I stopped and added up the hours. I was actually closer to 22-23 hours of reading time in those 2 days. (yes I am a kept man, no I don't get out much, Author was David Drake )
Normal for me would be a recharge every 5 - 6 days. Ohh and I've been pounding away at this Jetbook of mine for almost 6 months now. Have taken it everywhere except the bath.
As to format, RTF or plain .txt are what I use most often.
I have a lot of books that I've converted from the .lit format, those I mostly save as rtf.
PDF's I tend to convert to .txt as the pdf's require a page scroll. They really are not formatted for most screens. Rather than scroll up and down every page I just convert to straight txt and avoid the hassle. I really should get a better pdf converter, as my free version does .txt only.
