Battery life of Amazon Fire HD7 or HD8?

For those who bought Amazon Fire HD7 or 8, what is the battery life...

for streaming videos alone?
for reading ebooks alone?
for general purpose?

Thanks. Was considering buying HD8, but wonder what its battery life is, in comparison to 7.

A quick check on Amazon's site says the 2022 Fire 7 has a 10 hour battery life (a Fire HD 7 hasn't existed since 2014 if I remember correctly) and has a rather pathetic 1024 x 600 display. The 2022 Fire HD 8 has a 13 hour battery life and an almost equally pathetic 1280 x 800 display.

Please note that those battery life claims are made by Amazon so drop 3-4 hours minimum for real world use.

Oddly, Amazon publishes these specifications on their web page and they can be found in quite a few places elsewhere for the price of an internet search.
