Question Skytex Primer power issues

It looks like since my software upgrade my battery life has decreased. Also the time that it normally took to charge it up has also decreased four fold.

It had taken almost a full day to change only takes about 4 hours. The battery like if only about 4-5 hours of full use (if that).

am I jumping to conclusions or do I really have a power problem with my ereader?

I have a primer, and although I've had problems upgrading (long story), that sounds similar to what I've experienced. The first few times it took a while to charge it, but after that the time spent charging substantially reduced. I found I was getting around the same amount of time per charge as you are, shorter when using the video function.

Either we have the same problem, or that's just the way the Primers are.

not sure what happened, but it seems like I'm back to the original charging time. I setup the device to be charged last night around 8:00pm CST and at 7PM the next evening it is still charging. I hope that this means that I'll have a better charge and that it will last longer then 4-5 hours.

Been using mine for few months now. So far no problems. And also found a software called BRISS to crop the white margin of PDFs. For reading ebook this is a good device.
