    What's Your Battery Life?

      I did a search for "battery life" and there are so many different threads with complaints about the lack thereof. So here's a thread that is just about listing your battery life! What model(s) do you have? What is it's/their battery life and what do you do to get it?


      I'll start.


      My Nook SimpleTouch GlowLight that I got 10/12 lasts over 2 weeks on a single charge! Now that's me reading 4-5 hours a day. I never got below 5% on mine and that was when I read for 2 weeks, 4+ hours a day. I turn WiFi off and find that the Glowlight feature doesn't affect the battery much.


      My Nook HD+ gets 15 hours. I keep the WiFi off and the brightness at just above 60%. It took me 3 days to get the battery to 7% with me reading about 4-5 hours a day.


      What about you guys? How about those 1st generation Nooks? Is the battery still good on theirs after all of these years?

          My NCs and NT seem to average about 10% battery consumption per hour in use. With power off, they're good for 4-5 days of standby with light usage.


          My NSTs are easily good for a couple of weeks of light reading.


          Overall, battery life on my NOOK devices has been good, provided I'm careful with what I do with them. If I work to conserve battery, they do well.

            My NST, reading about 15-20 hours per week will usually last me around 4-6 weeks with wifi off.

            My wife's NT will last about 2 days with on.
