I tried to upload both screenshots but it didn't seem to work. 2 days 13 he's 20 minutes with 35% charge left. That was with 7.5 hrs of screen time. I got almost another hour of screen time before I recharged.
This was with mostly browsing or reading ebooks with Wi-Fi on while the screen is on, but Wi-Fi off when the screen is on. I had some weird media server draining my battery while the tablet was idle, so I set it to shut Wi-Fi off while the screen is off.

I don't know whether or not i should return mine. I can't seem to get nowhere near the average battery life that folks are getting, while having my screen to 40‰ brightness, airplane mode on, and wifi off when screen is off... Im running on stock w/o root yet.

Flashing kernel was also a good method to solve the problem or maybe make a factory reset may get better battery life
It depends your option
Actually battery life depends on how do u use the tablet maybe the next firmware update can ease the problem:)

40 percent is bright. This tablet has a very bright display. At full brightness its 583 nits. For comparison the iPad 4 is 407 and the iPad mini is 378.

40 percent of this devices brightness is about 225 nits. Want better battery. Turn down your brightness. Nothing is wrong with your device.

Battery draining at 1% every 3-4mins

How do you recalibrate the battery?

My battery is draining at >1% every 3-4 mins
Wifi ON, brightness- lowest possible.
Processes: FB, wechat, android stuff.

And im not doing anything to it.. I get around 5-6 hours

Any tips?

Don't know how accurate this is since my Nexus restarted itself and it lost some juice in the process but here it is.

It seems lost a lot of juice in that reboot so u can try one more time without reboot and it may get better standby and screen on time

There is no such thing as battery recalibration. Get rid of running Google services you don't need and monitor which apps keep the tab awake, kill them too. FB is quite heavy on the system, Chrome too, try lighter alternatives.

My 32 gb is stock rooted atm, but battery life is great. Might even just leave stock alone for a change (although thats doubtful).
Yesterday let the tab sit with screen on while i was working. Almost 6 hours of screen on dropped battery to 50%.
Screen was set to about 1/3 max brightness.

Ive used my tablet up to 2% battery left, maybe, up to 10-15x..

now im draining around 15-20% per hour.

Ive done a factory reset already, still its like that.. Do you think because of that battery treatment, i could have messed up my battery?
