    [Screenshots] Longest you have lasted on just battery

    Ok so I thought it would be interesting to see just how long people have managed to get their TF to last on just battery power.

    Rules: You must post a screenshot of the battery details like mine below, and you must also state if you are using just the Tablet battery, or the Tablet and Dock together.


    This is my best so far, I have it set to Auto Brightness and have Auto Airplane Mode running to turn off Wifi when the screen turns off.

    Tablet Battery Only

    1 day 14 hours 42 minutes (And counting) and have been using it now and then throughout, even playing some Tegra 2 games.

    Well you're doing much better than I am. I'm on the latest update and with nothing running (airplane mode set) I'm draining the keyboard battery (with the TF 'off') in about 8 hours. I've disabled all the widgets and rebooted but it's still really bad. I may go for a complete reset tomorrow (after listing all the apps I have installed). I also have a Samsung Galaxy (old 7") which still has 50% charge over a week since I last charged it and it has wifi on and is also 3G enabled….

    There is a fault with certain Docks you know, only solution for the battery drain bug is to RMA

    Its a compatibility problem between the chip and the firmware where ASUS need to replace the chip in the dock to fix it.

    Past the 2 days mark, but got bored and started charging at 18% remaining.





    You can see from the usage bars if I had just left it in sleep mode and not turned it on, it would more than likely have lasted easily another 2 or 3 days.

    Shame the battery is not as energetic for everyday normal use ! Still good to know it will last overnight though !

    I think my Dock is OK - I understood that the 'faulty' Docks could be identified by hitting a key when the TF wasn't on and provided it didn't start up you were OK.

    I'm going to spend some time today working on this - if I can't find out what is causing the battery drain it may be time to return it for repair

    Last few days my battery has seemed to improve 10 fold at holding charge, maybe it has reached its premium number of cycles now, not sure, but it seems to be much snappier too, as if something that was slowing it down and eating the battery has been removed.

    These screenshots are from the same cycle, havent been using it much, but have been using it.

    Being asked to recharge at 14% now (Tablet battery only)

    2 days 9 hours with low usage, pretty happy with that considering its pretty close to a phones battery life, screen on full brightness, WiFi on everytime it was woken up, Airplane Mode when screen off.

    This will be my last test of the battery until I receive the dock at Christmas, I guess if the screen was set lower and the WiFi was off it would give me another day or so
