I make sure that wireless connection is off, yet still I'm lucky if i get 5 hours battery life, and if I'm gaming its down to less than 3 hours......where do they get 11 hrs battery life from???

all the above make me think extra hard about buying a kindle lets face it if it doesnt do what it says on the tin............

thanks for suggestion about dimming light so will try that and see if it prolongs battery as am getting two evenings reading, which is disappointing and not what advertised. Also the recharging takes forever using pc tower.Can't find any mb connectors that fit!I LOVE MY KINDLE FIRE janet ewins

Turn WiFi off as much as possible and turn on aeroplane mode as recommended in a computer magazine it's worked for me

Hmmm weird as when i got mine i did a few things to test battery life i get a whole day with wifi . On and playing apps etc by 9 in evening still had 20%, next i tried using without wifi watching movies playing apps etc lasted almost 3 days , i guess you need task manager app which is free then you can shut down apps when not in use hope this helps
