Does anyone here have a tablet? Android or otherwise...

 

How long does it take to charge from 0 to full?

 

and 

 

How long does that last, on avarage, with avarage online use? 

 

I seem to spend all my time charging the damn thing only to get a few hours use, before I have to charge it again.. 

 

 

Any tips?

 

Cheers..

I have an ipad @catweazle1961 only an old one, it lasts a couple of days, charges in a few hours and I did watch a helpful youtube video on how to preserve battery by shutting down loads of useless  applications.

For it to last a couple of days, how many hours would you say you use it in those 2 days? @frenchielove

Well, that's pretty good going @frenchielove

My blinkin' thing lasts for about 8 hours max . (takes 4 hours to charge) 

 

Is yours a 10 inch screen?

I have an iPad 2 @catweazle1961. It's about two years old and I tend to use it mostly in the morning to read the papers and a bit of social media plus the odd game of Farm Heroes (sad I know) and this normally uses about 30% charge. To be safe I charge it every other night though. 

When the iPad was just over a year old it began losing battery power rapidly, maybe from full to flat in 3hrs. It also became very hot and so I contacted Apple support who advised me to restore it to factory settings and then restore my apps. 

 

It's never been a problem since and I put it down to be a rogue app eating the power.
