I am really impressed with the battery life of my Oasis 1. I'm surprised that Amazon didn't offer an optional charging cover for the Oasis 2 with the improvement that the cover and main unit could be charged separately.

I agree. A charging cover would be great for the new Oasis especially since its so expensive to begin with

I totally agree with you regarding ACC, and I'll definitely check out this Black Holes film.

DODO is quite fun. I am trying to resist the urge to post spoilers. I placed your book recommendation on my kindle wish list. I just purchased a collection of classics for 49 cents and it is 22,000 pages long according to amazon description LOL

I find that once you find a light level you can stick with it helps with battery life for you are not adjusting as much. My battery is down to 55% in 7 days instead of 4 or 5 days.

That's good ! I'm doing the opposite with adjusting the light more for reading on cloudy days. I can do 11 at night, but daytime I have to up the level to compensate for lack of sun. Although we're getting more sun next week, hopefully that will let me keep the light off all together outside.

Or I'll just use my Voyage outside, the battery on that is much better no matter the light setting.

I wish there was a way to completely hide the battery status bar so I would not obsess over it. I know it disappears when a book is open but I want it gone from home screen as well. I obsess over it to the point its ridiculous.

I find turning off the percentage helps. Whichever way one cuts though, the battery life is disappointing compared to previous Kindles, though in every other respect this is by far the best Kindle ever for me.

I think I'll use my Oasis 2 as my outside reader now. I can leave the light off, so that will really improve the battery life. At least on sunny days.
