    Default Battery Life

    I made a long search and found nothing. I was wondering how your battery life is doing, since mine is bad. Ever since I started leaving tasks alone, it's been horrible.

    Well I was just playing Horn, plugged in at 100 percent. Ended up at 90 after about an hour.

    My battery life is nothing short of amazing! I usually charge it every couple of days. I couldn't be more pleased with my $250 toy :-)

    I agree completely. I charge my N7 about every 3 days or so with pretty heavy use.

    To OP: It seems your WiFi connection is constantly reconnecting. That could be part of your problem...

    Great battery life here. If only my expensive laptop could last even half a long. I can use my n7 all day in a single charge

    Mine has great battery life, its one of the things I love about this tablet. Even if I barely use my phone, it won't last past a day. I use the N7 everyday and can easily go 24-48 hours under moderate use.

    I bet if I didn't use the N7 for a week, it would still have held most of its charge, thats how good it is.

    I've been using the N7 pretty aggressively the last 3 days, and typically run it fully dead in a day. That being said, my screen-On time has been well over 6 - 7 hours, so all things considered, that's pretty good haha.

    Trying to train it to go from fully charged to dead, which I'm able to do by lying on my **** all day. The only luxury of a leg injury ;-)

    I charge mine daily

    Gets down to around 50% after 4 to 5 hours usage (playing movies is the biggest battery killer for me, uses about 12% for a 1h30 film)

    I got two and a half days out of my first charge and struggled to drain the last 6%. Happy with the battery life so far!

    Everything I've read has said to not let your N7's battery drain dead or even close to it. Letting the battery drain down to 5% or less may degrade the quality and life of the battery. I always recharge at no lower than 15%.

    I'm not a heavy user (no games, some streaming movies, no music other than Spotify). I use it mostly for web surfing, reading, and a few other basic things. I usually can go 3 days until I hit around 25-30 percent, then I recharge it. With how I use my N7, I'm sure I could go 4 or 5 days before I hit 10%. I usually recharge it every night unless the battery level is higher than 75% -- not worth it then.

    By the way, I usually spend between 3-4 hours per day using my N7. I also power-off at night -- most of the time -- and it usually stays off during the day until I turn it on in the evenings to use it. Brightness is set to Auto. Wifi goes off when the device goes into sleep mode (two minutes of non-use) and I close unused opened apps as I go. Also, I don't use an app killer (heard they're not really doing you any good), nor do I have a bunch of 3rd party funky OS intensive apps running in the background other than a battery indicator -- I only have the apps I want on there. If there are apps I haven't used in awhile or don't think I will use much in the future, I delete it off the device. I can always re-install them back on the device later through Google Play. Animation is set to off and many of the apps that I don't care about if they're up-dated on a regular basis, I have them set to not up-date.

    Hey your music is good, and I don't even like the genre, but I'm in.

    Ok, now to topic.

    Every device I use on wi-fi in this old building, where I live and work, experiences severe battery drainage, owner wont pay for anything other than basic DSL (wont even allow employees to pay extra for better wi-fi). When a device has to strain to pick up signal, strains the heck out of the battery.

    My N7 actually experiences this but not even as close to bad as my other devices, I can charge at night and run all day.

    If anyone is having battery issue simply follow these steps:

    1) turn the brightness down to the lowest setting (not possible if using it outdoors during the day)
    2) set screen time out to 15 seconds when not being heavily used (change to 1 or 2 minutes when you are actively using it)
    3) if you still notice a lot of battery drain, there may be an app causing issues, wipe all the non-important running processes clear and see if that helps.

    Ah, it seems to me like I had to go to Google Play App--->Settings from the three dots at the corner--->Settings and disable Google AdMob ads. Thanks, although the problem was very obvious.

    I'm sorry, maybe its not very obvious to me but does disabling google admob ads really help battery life? I have great battery life already but more is always better.

    No, disabling Google's Location Services really helps.
