    Battery Drain problems and Battery Charging suggestions.

    In my previous TF101 after ICS update, I noticed my battery kept draining about 1-2% every hour. This is with the tablet on sleep w/o wi-fi and GPS and no apps running. I was anticipating the TF300 to have a better battery life but noticed that i'm still getting around the same drain percentage (1-2%/hour) when i'm not using the tablet and with GPS and wi-fi switched off. This would mean i have to charge the tablet 2.5 days even if I don't use it. Did anyone else test and see how much their batteries are doing?

    Also, after unboxing, i've read a few suggestions on how to charge the battery. Which one works better, and which ones have you done?
    1. Charge the unit for 8 hours according to manual
    2. Charge the unit up to 100% and it's ok to unplug and use
    3. Let the battery drain first before charging the unit the first time

    I did #2 but had the Tablet charging for 4 hours before I decided to remove the charger and start using. Maybe this was a mistake?
    Post your thoughts and suggestions. It would be much appreciated.

    How about just turning it off if you won't be using it for a couple days. Out of curiosity how long does it take to boot up from off?

    It depends on how many apps you have installed.

    It's not that i'm not going to be using it. I'm just doing it to check how long the battery would last. I'll be using it everyday. When I had my TF101 I had to switch it off every night just so the battery won't drain to zero, or put the charger on. Just wanted to see if TF300 has really improved that battery problem.
