They've gotta be able to do something about this. I can haz POGO??
    Are Pogo's even out for the N10, if so where?

This is with just wifi running, Bluetooth off, NFC off and screen dimmed to 15-20%, but according to specs I shouldn't have to do any of that to get my 9 hours average. I really don't know how they test that, 9 hours of just sitting idle maybe. I think if I gave it a real HD movie, it may crap it's pants and just shut down.

    Don't even get my on recharge time for the battery, so far it's been over an hour and it's now sitting 18% and it started at 1%.
    I have the same issue with my nexus 7. I get about 4-5 hours tops and it takes about that same amount of time to fully charge. I was gonna get a nexus 10 for my son for christmas but I'm thinking Ipad now.

    4-5 hours on a Nexus 7? I get like 2-4 days out of mine, using it primarily to surf the web 3-5 hours after work while I'm on the couch. If you're only getting 4-5 hours it likely means YOU are doing something wrong or you have a rogue app/service sucking up all of the juice.

    Case in point: all of a sudden last week I was only gettin 1.5 days or so out of my N7. I checked the battery history to see what was eating up all of the juice and saw something called NFC Service (associated with the bluetooth icon) eating up 67% of the battery, so I turned bluetooth off until I could figure it out. It took all of 30 seconds to figure out what I changed that caused the battery drain. It wasn't difficult.

    And if you are the type of person who misuses your own product and then decides to get a different product before figuring out what you're doing wrong...then you fit squarely into the iOS demographic. Good riddance.

    Anandtech just reviewed the iPad Mini, and in it they have battery test results for the N7, N10, iPad4 and iPad Mini (among many others). As you can see, the N10 compares pretty closely, despite having to push a screen with a ton more pixels than the other tablets:



    Also, the N7 and N10 clearly should get much more than 3-4 hours per use, unless you're playing a 3D intensive game non-stop.

    I have all the settings to maximize battery life and use the nexus to surf the web only! I only know 2 other people with N7's and BOTH say that they get poor battery life too. To fully charge the N7 takes over 5 hours! Google services is the using the most battery on my tablet.

    If you are actually USING the tablet (ANY tablet) on the battery, then "Display" should be using the most battery, and should probably be about 20 to 100 times more battery than "Google Services". Otherwise, you have some type of severe configuration problem.

    Actually I have far more. I also have had both iOS and Android devices for years and likely know more about Android than most of the people here. When you buy Samsung made cheap plastic sold by Google at cost then you get what you pay for.

    The reason it takes so long to charge is that it is using Micro USB and a bastardized version at that. Standard micro USB doesn't provide enough juice to charge a tablet.

    I love how you get on here and spout off "facts." Sense I'm sure that you know exactly how much current the battery needs to charge and Google cleared the profit margins on the Nexus devices with you. Please share more of you infinite inside information ;-)

    I assume you would want a proprietary port that would limit your use of cables and take away the ability to easily plug in flash drives and other usb devises? Yeah that's the answer...

    TROLL. Please go away.

    Using USB to charge is *brilliant* because it is *STANDARD*. You don't need any special chargers or cables. You can charge just about anywhere. If you need to charge faster, the POGO contacts can do that.

    GO AWAY

    I think I am seeing the same thing,,,,very little time before the battery runs low and so far I have been charging for 2 hours and its sitting at 50%. I also can not charge with just any microusb, it has to be the one which came in the box else the Nexus draws more power than it recieves (e.g. the micro usb i use to charge my Galaxy Nexus).

    So, it would seem to me that this is not what one would sign up for when buying a premier Google/Nexus/Samsung product. I wonder if Google would stand up and admit the inferiorness of this power situation. Its really not a long term proposition and i still have a few days to return it. I like the tablet otherwise and i don't want to go through the hassle of returning it.

    What to do???????

    Android Central,,,,why didn't you mention this in your review? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do people know just how big of a battery this thing has?! I have a HP Touchpad with a 6,300mAh and it has to charge on the cable/charger that came with it or else it will take forever. It also takes a while to charge in general and if I use it while its charging it takes a long while.The nexus 10 has a 9,000mAh one...your cellphone is likely around 2,000mAh.

    You have to remember that it is charging a battery that is over 4 times the size of your cellphone all through a micro USB.

    Edit: to be specific. My EVO 3D has a 1,730mAh battery Nexus 10 has 9,000mAh...that's 5.2 times bigger than my phone. I don't know how long it takes for your phone to charge fully from dead but it isn't short.

    Hello OP,

    I really think you have a lemon. I've actually been really impressed with the battery.

    I received my N10 on Tues with a battery at 62%.and just put it to charge for the first time (today - Friday) between 2 - 3 hours ago at 14%. This is with no settings changed out the box with he exception of Wifi being turned on. Its now at 64%, a rate of 25% - 16% per hour.

    Both my wife and I have been using it to browse the web and watch videos on YouTube as well as showing our family pictures and clips of our newborn on Thanksgiving (yesterday).

    I think if you compare my stats with yours, you'll agree that your unit is a dud and needs to be exchanged. Hope this helps and things work out for you. Take care.

    The Xoom charges faster with it's proprietary everything, but it was SO less functional! I personally don't care that it takes longer to charge. I am very happy with this setup!!!
    I disagree. Currently there is no way to have the USB connected and the device charging. I liked that about my Xoom. I'm looking forward to the pogo charger...

    My N10 takes about the same time to charge as my gf's iPad 3 maybe a bit longer but not much. You do realize the other end of that 30 pin connector (obsolete) or lightning cable is a USB connector right? Luckily we can also use the pogo connector to charge much faster....oh wait you can't with an iPad you are permanently stuck with terrible charging times...oh well...

    I can't imagine any time I would want to charge and use USB data at the same time. Of course, everyone is different.

    How often does one need to transfer files via MTP? And how often is that such a long time that one is compelled to need to charge during that time?
