    Does Wifi cause battery drain?

    If reading a book I've loaded from outside the cloud, how much of a difference does keeping wifi on make? Does it drain the battery like a cell phone does?

    Yes.
    How much? Not sure.
    Only time I turn wifi off is if I'm reading while on a road trip, or when o know I dont need wifi and aam far from a charging source.

    If you are reading a book on your device and leave Wifi off the battery lasts a long long time...with wifi on it seems to be about 4 hours of continuous use. At least so far in my experience.

    everything basically has some battery drain, but wi-fi doesn't seem to be significant!
