Today I ran it down until it shut itself off and plugged it in to USB, but after almost seven hours the orange light is still on and the most it gets to is 94% charge.

Three questions:
1) Are there any known or rumored issues about charging after softroot?
2) I know that lithium batteries have interlocks that automagically shut off charging when the battery is at capacity. Are these hardware interlocks or firmware interlocks? i.e. can they be affected by firmware issues?
3) Do PDF page turns burn more battery charge than epub?

I don't have any problems though, battery drains less than in most other readers.
