    Default How long is your battery lasting on the Nexus 7 FHD?

    The battery on mine doesn't seem to last too long. So was wondering what you guys were getting. I know it's suppose to be 7 hours movie time and 18 hours browsing internet/idle time but I want to know real world use.

    I get 8 hours screen on time, strictly internet browsing, checking email and using a few apps here and there. No gaming, videos or music at all. Wi fi always on. Gps on batt save mode, bluetooth off, and brightness on 10-20%

    I've kept mine off the charger for 3 days. I only use it when I am at home, and when I am gone it is on airplane mode. So basically I am getting 5 hours a day out of it, and those hours are heavy usage.

    One of the good rules set by the founders of this great forum is not to tell people to "search" we are here to help whether the topic has been discussed before or not.

    Hmm... Maybe your WiFi iPad mini has background task running or brightness setting on high cause compared to my nexus 7 fhd 8hrs versus my iPad mini 1st gen 11 hours, same setting on screen. Or maybe she on ios7 I'm still using 6.0 more battery efficient.

    Another is to not create a thread without searching first and a third is to leave the policing to the moderators. just saying

    funny really, as we have a guy who breaks a rule by posting a repetitive thread without searching first, then another who reprimands him for it and a third pointing it all out. Don't you just love how internet forums work.

    15 hours on one charge? I don't get close to that...

    On days I neglect it I can leave it for more than 5 days with notifications piling up.

    Currently it is 80% charges, and has been on battery for 1d 9h 25m.

    However, sometimes if I leave it with a lot of apps running, it can lose all its power and shut down in 2 days.

    I use the LTE version as my primary device. I get about 2 days between needed charges.

    I have lately been preoccupied with getting the most I can out of my battery. This is an activity that is probably a real waste of my time. I the grand scheme of things does it really matter if I recharge once a week or twice a week??

    Nevertheless, I use my N7 about 1-2 hours a day for podcasts, book reading, emails, some browsing and an occasional You-Tube. No games, no extended (Netflix) video. I'm using all of the well-known battery-saving tricks - wifi, gps, blutooth off when not needed, dark static wallpaper, screen off during podcast and music, minimal wakelocks, minimal notifications, etc, etc.

    In recent weeks I've had about 12 hours of use between 100% and 14% of remaining battery charge.

    there a guide for this? I'm getting 4 hours on screen time minimal brightness just browsing internet with WiFi on. I do keep Bluetooth off, GPS location stuff on power saving. haven't had the tablet for more than a week either.

    I quit worrying about battery life when I went to wireless charging. I just put the device on a charger when I am not using it. It charges even with the case on and is charged and ready to go when I need it.
