    So i was just surfing on the internet, for like 20 minutes, and watched a 30 minute anime show ^^, when i realized i only had 1/2 - 3/4 of my battery life, im like wtf ._. I just charged it! Is there something wrong with mine? Or is the battery life just absolutley horrendous?

    wifi isnt supposed that long, it will last a long time if you just listen to music, with wifi turned OFF.

    One thing that will impact how much battery you get when using WiFi is the quality of your signal and the distance from your access point. If you have a clean signal and are close to your wireless router you'll need less signal strength and therefore power to drive the signal. When the signal is weak the access point will drop the speed in order to get more power and therefore more distance with the connection. In other words it takes a lot more power to drive a high speed connection over long distance.

    Keep your screen brightness at 50% it helps a crap load. And trust me it's not so dark you will get used to it and then 100% will look too bright.

    Yeah dude i do the same.

    Brightness to 50% which is ample and keep wifi off when not needed.

    I commute every day with a couple of hours each way, use wifi when i cannot get on my desktop or laptop, and i normally have to recharge at the end of every other week.
