I have the version of the Kindle before this latest one (of course I bought it a week before the new ones came out - shame on me for not researching whether a new version was in the works).
Anyway, I tend to keep it in my bag and read on the train or in waiting rooms etc. Sometimes I go several days without using it. I will go from battery completely charged to completely dead. I think it is because the Kindle insists on putting those pretty designs on the screen even when it is "off." But when I have an hour train ride, like I did today, and nothing to read - I get peeved that I can't seem to turn the thing all the way off. Like conserve the battery off.
Am I doing something wrong? If my cell phone had half of its battery life left and I turned it off, I'd expect it to have half of it's battery life left when I turned it back on, even a few days later. This doesn't seem to be the case with the Kindle.
What am I missing?
