Atunah,
I did the test using your settings (bold 3, brightness 10, WiFi off, font#4).
After 209 minutes of reading, my Oasis is at 90% battery life, a stunning improvement. That extrapolates to 34.83 hours battery life, exponentially better than the 7.4 hrs to date, and exceeding Amazonís specs (42 days, half hour a day, brightness 10, wireless and Bluetooth off). .
I am going to go out on a limb and assume brightness level was probably the major source of battery drain. Hopefully it wasnít the 4 pt font!
So I will keep the Oasis. My big concern was having to carry a charger on weeklong trips.
Now I can safely leave the charger home, as long as I keep the brightness down.
Cheers, Joe
