Same here. I suspended my Boox using the latest Neo Firmware in the evening and the battery was flat the next day...

Yeah. I noticed it too but wasn't sure if this is a problem with the file I read or dictionary. Could be firmware fault.

Have the battery issues with the BeBook Neo been worked out? From everything I've read so far, the BeBook Neo seems to have just about the worst battery life of any ebook reader on the market at the moment. I have the impression that it needs to be charged 2x per week at a minimum, as opposed to say 2 weeks between charges for the Kindle. If you're traveling or on vacation, this is a huge difference.

I'm using the 1.4 firmware from Onyx on my Neo. I already left it 2 days (!) in standby (screensaver) mode. No problems with the battery; still 3 bars left.
