    The past couple of days I've been downloading apps and messing with the settings and pushing the battery to its limit.

    Today I just messed with the Prime as normally as I can see myself in the future.
    Downloaded some files (pictures and videos) surfed the net, played a few games etc. I was able to get 11 hours and 2 minutes of battery life. It just shut down and I put it on the charger.

    Today I did switch between normal, balanced and power miser modes I also used super IPS a little outside. Overall I am very impressed with the battery in this thing so far.
    Post up your battery performance.

    11 hours 2 minutes

    No long-term battery life data yet, but I'll say that the thing is great on standby. Had it sitting overnight for 9 hours and it only lost 4% battery life. That's much better than the original Transformer.

    Nice to see that the battery life is good. 11 hours is plenty time! I will have to test mine out once I get it next week.

    Thanks for the battery reviews..I would cancel my pre order if the battery wasn't up to par.

    I don't care about GPS but battery life is a biggie for me.

    im running a few tests of my own but im not complete. i think considering the amazing standby efficiency, i will have much more than 11hrs.

    i surf, then put it down, then surf, then put it down, then play a game for 20min and put it back down, maybe check some emails and put it down. etc. My usage results in a lot of standby.

    im never on it consistently for more than an hour.

    What are we supposed to be able to see? Is it just me or is the image missing?
