I have yet to test the 2-month battery life with wifi off, but so far I have owned the Nook Touch for a week and wifi has been left ON constantly. I read about 1-2 hours a day, downloaded a total of 7-9 books. For the first few days, battery dropped by 5% a day. For the last couple days, it's been going down at 15-20% a day. Right now I am at the 1-week anniversary and the battery is at 15%.
Normal or something I should be concerned about? Does the advertised 3-week battery life assume pure standby and no usage whatsoever?
P.S. The battery indicator sometimes says "discharging" other times "not charging". What's the difference?

B&N has stated that their bettery tests were based on reading for half an hour a day. If you are reading for 1-2 hours a day, you won't get the full 3 weeks.

I have been getting 2-3 weeks out of a charge with a couple hours a day usage amd Wi-Fi on all the time.
That's pretty much the same as I get. Of course it depends on how much reading I do.

I should also note that I bring the Nook on subway train rides to and from school. Wifi's been down on campus for the last week as well. So I guess all that battery juice went into searching for actival wifi signal.

I just got one on tuesday, and im still on my first charge, at about 80% reading a 3 hours a day. I love it, way better than my first gen!
