Battery estimates from manufacturers usually hover in-between “hopelessly outlandish” and only “if you leave the device in your pocket”, so it’s good to see Notion Ink being upfront about their Adam slate’s power limitations. After saying that with “normal” use the Pixel Qi equipped tablet managed 15+ hours of runtime, the company has now put together a list of ways in which you can gnaw that down to just 6hrs. As you might expect, heavy use of HD video, GPS, the camera or Flash can all be relied on.
The full list is below, and we’re particularly interested in the potential for streaming HD video over wireless from the Adam’s rotating 3.2-megapixel camera. As with any mobile device, day-to-day runtime depends very much on how you actually use it: if you spend your time browsing and reading ebooks then you can probably expect a whole lot more from your battery.
