Hi folks, i am considering buying this device and looked the whole forum but did not find any info about the battery life ? How long does your 10.1 last with different activities (Browsing, gaming, video and etc.) ?
I had a small 8'' tablet which lasted about 1.5 hours and really hate it. That's why i want to know what i can expect from this device.
The Note doesn't have a user changeable battery... Most tablets don't....
To answer your question, a lot of reviews indicate an average battery time of about 7-12 hours of medium to heavy use. I think I saw somewhere that a video loop test managed around 9-10 hours. 720 p mp4 movie

I posted this in another thread asking about battery life:
I was just in an 8-hour class where I used S-Note extensively. (From 8:30a to 4:30p.) I took around 20 pages of notes. When I wasn't actively taking notes, I was experimenting with the features of S-Note and the tablet in general since it's pretty new to me, as well as browsing the web, Facebook, etc. When the class started my battery was at 83% (I didn't plug it in until very late last night and didn't turn it off while it charged, so it wasn't fully charged when I left home this morning). As of now, over 45 minutes after the class, my battery is at 53%. My screen brightness has been around 25% all day which was plenty bright in a brightly lit room.
We did have a half-hour lunch, and a couple breaks during which the screen was off. But, not too shabby, if you ask me.
I'm finding my battery life to be pretty fantastic.

Depends on what you do with the tablet, if you play games, or use a lot of data, it can drain pretty quickly about 5-6 hours, if you do light stuff like watch videos/take notes/read, it'll probably last 10 hours
