My GEAR is arriving tomorrow,I'll post battery results after the weekend.
However,a co-worker of mine has been using his for about a week now & consistently is sitting @ 80% when returning home from work.(approx 12 hrs on-time)
The earlier reports of barely making it through a day's use were probably under extreme use scenarios & not real-life everyday use.
This device is a complimentary accessory & not the go-to/heavy use item that some bloggers/testers no doubt used as such,hence the doom & gloom over battery life.
I say stop hatin' to da' haters : Either get one,or,SHADUUUUUUP
