    Not bad, not bad at all.

    I've been stress testing my tablet today to see how long it could withstand.
    By stress I mean that I have left the screen on to see how much screen on time I could get out of it with moderate use.
    Previously I have never gotten above 6 hours of screen on time.

    I was pleasantly surprised this time.
    During moderate use under 14h and 30m I have gotten out 11 hours of screen on time.
    Under this time I've sent like 40 pictures, browsed the web for about two hours, studied some french for about an hour, chatted with people, listened to some music, uploaded some apps to my gDrive backup and watched a couple of youtube videos. The WiFi was on during all of this.

    Not too shabby I might say.
    * I still have 13% battery left.

    if you really wanna stress your battery see how much drainage you get when watching a 50 minute show on netflix. my 2012 n7 goes down about 20-35% every hour.

    Stressing it now.
    Finished stressing it.
    With the remaining 11% I had I watched a 50 minute episode of Family Guy.
    I'm now down at 4%.

    If idle I lose about 0.3% per hour. If heavy usage I can lose about 12 - 16% an hour.

    I have a Nexus 7 2013 LTE 32GB

    I know how that feels.
    May I suggest that you flash a new kernel? Are you running anything custom?

    The.
    It doesn't have to be fancy, I'm running on the stock ROM, I just have a custom kernel. I've also removed applications I don't need, the bloatware

    Which one of the new ones? 9?

    That's not bad. In a few years cell phones and shit like that are getting new battery's that can last 5 years on one charge. They've been testing it for a bit now.

    I am going to continue to be sceptic to that. I doubt we have the technology to have that much of an efficient energy usage.

    What tablet do you have out of curiosity, my iPad mini broke a few weeks back and I've been looking for something new I didn't see any use for a tablet before but since I won the iPad in a contest I've found myself using it more than my laptop and phone.

    I'm using the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE, 32GB version.
    Stick with Android, always Android.
    There's so much more opportunity in it.

    That's pretty crazy. Kinda sounds far fetched, but in a few years who knows.
