Likebook Mars battery concern

Hi everyone,

I bought a Likebook Mars few days ago, I must say I really like this device. Nevertheless I'm concerned about the battery life of it:

When I'm using it with WiFi activated and browsing the web, the battery loses 20% in less than an hour... Is that normal, as the device is completely new?
When I compare it to my android phone, I do get much more time on screen with my phone than with the Mars, and both devices have similar battery capacity. I was thinking that the e-ink screen technology would save a lot of hours on screen, compared to a normal lcd screen device.


I do need to decide in the next 5 days, if I want to keep my Likebook Mars or returned it.
Thank you for your help!

Browsing sucks battery. I would say that's normal. Try only reading. Battery life should be much longer.

I'm not normally surfing on my device, but 20% in less than an hour does seem a bit excessive to me. I do get more of a drop in battery when I occasionally leave wifi on, of course. Coincidentally, I forgot today that I had left wifi on and syncing running (which is generally quite an energy drain), and my battery dropped about 12% per hour - however with screen off.

Thank you for your answers!

@franzli I'm even more suprised, that the screen would take so much battery... I'm a little bit skeptical about the battery life of the Likebook Mars let's say in 2 or 3 years of use.
