I was at 0% when I initiated the
My device is now charging and after 2 hours it is at 60%, When It get to +95%, I will then evaluate if it is draining or maintaining its charge. I will keep you posted.

It's been 1 hour since running on full battery charge with lasted OS
it's at 92% capacity, no apps running but I did keep the PB awake touching every 5 minutes (Dimming turned off)

I charged mine to 90% (30% - 80% with a weaker charger, 80-90 with the one included in box) and left it on standby for 3 hours. The bugger went from 90% down to 53%! Wifi was left on, and a browser was left open.
I charged it again with the one from the box, and this am on standby and after an hour it seemed to hold charge.
Is retaining battery charge a bug? Is there a best practice for leaving pb on standby ie turning off bluetooth and wifi?

I hope they fix it soon too. Have cancer and wanted this PB to help me pass the time while I'm healing from the surgery but like this it's no good to me. Might just have to return it and wait until they get all the bugs worked out

I did the update to OS 126.96.36.1998 and it is working even better now. I notice the battery is more efficient and if it is in stand by it barely drain some current over the time. I.E. If I leave it in stand by for 4 hours it only go down to 1% only.
The problem with your tablet is that you might be leaving wifi and/or Bluetooth running, make sure you turn them off and applications closed, by doing this the drain of current will be dramatically reduced to a few microAmps.
Please give kudos if this message help you.

Well I took it off the charger this morning and it was at 100% only turned it on long enought to look at the battery meter maybe 6 times and its now at 19%. Looks like Best Buys is going to get it back and I may wait for them to get all the kinks worked out
