Super Freaked

The Husband bought me a nice Amazon Kindle a couple of months ago.

I was super excited about it. It's the latest one - it's sleek, light, small and has Wi-Fi.

It's an amazing device. I read it for about half an hour each night before going to bed. In addition, I've taken it on a couple of business trips and read it on the train.

Well, it's great..but I'm getting a little paranoid.

I haven't had to charge it a single time since I got it.

The instructions said it could last up to two months with the Wi-Fi disconnected. But I've left the Wi-Fi on, and read it almost every day.

I've heard of people being disappointed when the battery life on their electronic devices is shorter than expected.

But longer than expected?

I know I shouldn't complain. Maybe there's a little hamster in that sleek casing, running efficiently for me.



With wireless off, I can run mine for about 6 hours. With wireless on, I get closer to 2-3 hours.

Wow, that is amazing; I guess all the hoopla about e-ink (I think it only uses energy when changing the display rather than maintaining what is already displayed) was true! Remembering to charge your devices all the time is such a pain, so that long battery life is a really great feature!

I've always left the wifi off on my Kindle and seriously, I charged it a total of 3 times. I got it for Christmas last year. I love it!!

Wow! That's amazing.

I'm still debating on getting an iPad or not. :(
