I had a microsd installed with only sideloaded books. My battery went from a full charge to completely depleted in ONE day WITHOUT me touching it. It died in sleep mode. I have had it for only a month a half. This has already happened three times, just not as fast as dying in one day. That was the final straw. The resetting after a full charge worked at first, but then it stopped! I'm a technophile and know my way around electronics extremely well, I just couldn't figure this one out. I finally took it back to Target today. It really sucks, because I loved it soooo much. The battery was atrocious though. Plus, I had lucked up and gotten one that still came with the power adapter.

I am headed back to Amazon. Which sucks, as B&N clearly had the best hardware this round...
