    I have read articles about the EP121 that say it has a 3 hour battery. I even saw one website saying it had a 2 hour battery.

    My B121 gets me, on a full overnight charge, about 4 good hours of use.

    Doesn't the B121 and EP121 have the same specs? I wonder why I seem to get more battery life than what is being reported.

    One thing I do is run it almost always at the dimmest screen setting. It works for 80-90% of the time unless I am in a very bright room or outside.

    Hi yes, I used to get 4 hours of battery life too with moderate screen brightness etc.... my EP121 is now 2 years old, ran for 12 hours a day and hardly ever rebooted. My battery is now completely knackered, it runs for less than 1 hour if I'm lucky I will get 2 hours then it just turns off without warning!

    Yeah, I am finding I am getting about 3 hours usage with 75% brightness and I can push it to nearly 3.5 hours if I keep the brightness
    nearly all the way down (which works fine in a bright room). My B121 is probably just as old but I suspect it hadn't been used as much
    before I got it.
