Checking the specs on the Kobo site, I don't see any mention of battery size. There is a blurb of "weeks of battety life, depending on usage" (or something similar), but no mention of how they came up with that number?

Hi John,

The Kobo Sage battery info can be found here:

https://prod-news.kobo.com/media-hub...kobo-libra-h2o

… then click on “Kobo Sage Fact Sheet” which leads here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6goljpheer...sheet.pdf?dl=0

The Sage has a 1,200mAh battery.

Hope this helps!
Darren

Libra 2, which is cheaper and smaller has a better battery (1500mah), Pocketbook Inkpad 3 which was released in 2018 has 1900mah battery and is 30g lighter than Sage.

I really want to get one, but i hate power covers (reason why i sold first generation Oasis, after only few weeks of use), and Sage is already on the heavy side.

Rubbish. On release, the iPad was far in advance of anything else available.
We had one still in use until it was replaced last year, so it was still going 10 years later.

Not necessarily, there were review units sent out for the Tolino Vision 6 variant. I find it disappoint that Kobo didn't do the same with their Libra 2 variant.

I’m holding off any ordering until I see an actual review.

Indeed. "Ought not" is a value judgment, therefore intrinsically subjective. The objective reality is that such (p)review units are definitely the norm, across the tech gadget sphere. That's why it's surprising there have been none for the Sage.

Those sort of reviews are nearly worthless. Only unsolicited reviews by ordinary users are worth much.

It seems that review embargos until release are becoming more common.

Have any kindle battery sizes after the K1 ever been made public other than via jailbreak or someone opening the case and looking?

Number of days of reading time has always been a manipulated number (by everyone).
1st there is the definition of a 'day'; 3Hrs is one number I have seen used
But there is more
How many page turns per hour affects CPU usage more than idle time (while reading the page).
Back light usage?
Audio usage (will prevent full CPU sleep), Blutooth...

1200mA for an eink device used for visual reading should be plenty for days (Ya gotta sleep sometimes, so put it on charge then and quit worrying )
