I'll bet that a lot of people are curious how good the battery life is on this Kindle Fire, so I decided to do a "real life" battery test. To simulate a long car trip in the car, I fully charged up the tablet and started playing Disney movies until the tablet shut off.
After 90 minutes, we were down to 72% battery. Not bad. After 3 hours, we were now down to 42% battery life. The 10% low battery warning popped up around the 5 hour mark, and tablet finally died after 5 1/2 grueling hours of Disney movies. That should be enough for even the most demanding car trips to grandma and granddad. Nice work, Amazon.
