  • Where are those two things written?

    I believe I'm probably just underestimating the battery life so people don't complain if it doesn't reach the advertised though.

    'Where are those two things written?'

    As those 1000+ emails have caused some mental anguish, ;-) the link is in the #2 post, just above my comment.

    link reposted here:

    Both found under 'Features' tenth bullet and 'Power Consumption' first bullet and comment beneath that grouping.

    And an update on my actual usage

    100% CPU usage running JavaScript - 7mA
    LCD on - 40mA

    On a brand new only charged once Beta Bangle, I ran a Javascript battery monitor endless loop, updating the display every five seconds until battery death. Ran for eleven hours!

    Calc: 350 / (7 + 40) = 7.44 hr

    So maybe the display is slightly better than advertised? Super conservative est ~30ma
    or an actual pixel on percentage needs to be taken into account? Didn't think LCDs worked that way though.

    Calc: 350 / (7 + 30) = 9.46 hr
    Calc: 350 / (7 + 25) = 10.92 hr
    Est: 11 * (7 + 40) = 517 mAhr

    Which seems unlikely ~30% improvement over listed?

    It will be interesting to see how LiIon holds out over time, after daily charging cycles. I expect it to drop off after 50-100 as the articles inform us.

    'underestimating the battery life so people don't complain if it doesn't reach the advertised though'

    Understood, and by my first inital test, makes sense so I wouldn't change the content. More concerned about standby and idle concept difference.
