Has a ~35whr capacity to the ~30whr capacity that your's is reporting, but there isn't that much difference there. I wonder what else, component selection wise, might be different that is resulting in that. Maybe crappier eMMC storage and/or regular RAM instead of low voltage RAM or something?

    PS That is undocked, docked might see an extra 1% or so battery life chewed for a 3hr movie. Unless you have a HDD dock, the regular dock doesn't use much extra power.
    I just returned from a trip to Japan (ie Eastern U.S. to Japan, Tokyo), Approximately a 14 hour flight each way. I witnessed about the same as Azazel1024 mentioned (15% battery per movie). I'm on Bios 313, I watched 3 full length movies going and 3 returning and used approx. 50% of my battery each way. The movies were all located on an external micro SD card in MP4 format. Screen brightness was at 80% (I hate dim displays), no keyboard docked, listening through headphones at 80% volume. I used Metro Media Player Pro app to playback the movies. Based on my experience, playing a trilogy of Lord of the Rings would be very well doable on a full battery charge. at least that would be my experience with the T100 model posted in my signature.

    I don't know how the movie lengths compare to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but here they are in case you want to look up their lengths and compare.

    Going:
    The Monuments Men
    Lucy
    Horrible Bosses (1)

    Returning:
    Left Behind
    Walk of Shame
    X-Men Days of Future past

    yeah, my test were done using an mkv file with kb dock since I figure whenever I bring this with me on a trip it would be docked. I do think that t100taf has a somewhat smaller battery than t100ta though.

    I am half and half on docked or undocked. At home I generally use it docked, as I tend to set it up for things like watching a TV show or movie while cooking, baking or brewing. At work, undocked only for movie watching (lunch hour). Traveling, a mix, but generally undocked. Occasionally I'll watch something at home undocked, but if I am in a "sitting/laying around" mode for a movie, I am probably just watching it on my TV, but occasionally undocked in my lap or proped on my knees laying down.

    For movie watching, I always have it undocked. Generally, the only times I watch movies on my T100 is when I'm traveling and removing the keyboard gives me a tad more space on the tray table.

    I'm finding more and more, the only time I have the dock on the T100 is when I'm doing work, using programs such as Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Acrobat, Photoshop, and Outlook where I then also have a mouse connected via Bluetooth along with the keyboard. Also surfing the web, I'll have the keyboard dock on. Anything for entertainment purposes, the dock is always removed.

    For Lords of the Ring Trilogy...

    -The Fellowship of the Rings = 178 minutes (Theatrical) / 208 minutes (228 minutes with additional credits, Extended Edition)

    -The Two Towers = 179 minutes (Theatrical) / 223 minutes (235 with additional credits, Extended Edition)

    -The Return of the King = 200 minutes (Theatrical) / 251 minutes (263 with additional credits, Extended Edition)

    In comparison...

    -The Monuments Men = 118 minutes

    -Lucy = 88 Minutes

    -Horrible Bosses = 98 minutes

    -Left Behind = 111 minutes

    -Walk of Shame = 95 minutes

    -X-Men - Days of Future Past = 131 minutes

    So, that's 557-726 to watch the whole Lords of the Ring Trilogy versus 641 total for all six of the movies you did watch... Meaning, taking into account you estimated using up to 50% of your battery each way for the movies that you did watch, that watching the whole LoR Trilogy would require more than 100% of your battery to get through but as you had a chance to recharge between trips that you could get through them as long as the flight wasn't longer...

    This is assuming each movie is equally easy to watch... but keep in mind different quality, bit-rate, and codecs used could all differ how much energy it takes to watch a particular movie... especially an action flick with lots of details and rapid scene changes... along with types of anime that require CPU load for the real time renderings...

    The problem can be made worse if the system is not properly set up to view certain videos with the wrong codecs, improper player, etc. and put additional strain on the system that would significantly reduce the battery life... A typical problem with first gen W8 devices was getting the video player properly set up... less of a problem now but depending on how the system is set up it can still happen...

    All of which makes determining if there is a hardware issue harder to determine until you can determine no other factor is effecting the results...

    Might just have to use my asus x205 with 11hr+ battery life and even this won't cut it.... seriously though there's not really too many devices on the market that can handle the whole trilogy extended... maybe with dual batteries 1 in tab 1 in kb dock.

    External battery packs are an option for extending run times, though airlines do have certain restrictions...

    IATA - Lithium Batteries

    Or you can just use an adapter and use power from the plane...

    The Ultimate Guide to In-Seat Laptop Powerports

    Provided it's allowed... "Some airlines, like Continental Airlines, specifically state that battery charging is not allowed and ask you to remove your rechargeable battery from your device." and the power provided isn't a lot but should be enough for devices like the T100...

    Oh, hai! Apparently touch UI video player is now an option.

    Windows 8.1 receives native MKV support

    I haven't checked yet to see if the update is sitting out there (I assume it went out yesterday, but I didn't do any updates yesterday). So native MKV support in windows now...FINALLY!

    I wonder if anyone has tried anything like this on the T100TA:
    http://www.amazon.com/Globalsat-ND-1...ywords=usb+gps

    I am so close to buying a VTN8, in part b/c it has a gnss chip (my T100 does not). But I've now found out about the (virtually universal) screen/stylus failure issues, and I'd rather not buy something that is guaranteed to fail, even if there is an easy fix that invalidates the warranty (I digress).

    So I'm looking for USB GPS receivers that might work with Nokia Here Maps on my T100. This one looks promising. But only two Amazon reviews?
