    wi-fi does not use up battery life like on your phone. But you are correct it will save battery life. Also you get 7-9 hours out of a battery using it constantly for a full day is still quite a lot.....whether you turn off your wi-fi or not!

    You should notice an increase in overall battery life after about a week to 10 days, even if you don't do the drain fully once method, which has its own controversies as to whether or not it actually works

    The KF has a larger battery than a smartphone. But it also has a screen two to three times the size of even the largest smartphone and lighting that beautiful screen is a battery killer. Turn it off when you're not viewing it. If that's a PITA, set the screen timeout to a short period. (See settings.) You may find it useful to download a screen dimmer that enables you to fine tune brightness and contrast independently. Turning down brightness while increasing contrast may provide a perfectly readable screen with less battery drain.

    And yes, don't keep wifi on unless you're using it or can keep the KF plugged into a power source. And even when you do have the wifi turned on examine the notifications you have set. Polling your email account every few minutes can gobble up battery power.

    You may find it useful to download a battery monitor such as the "Badass" monitor available in the app store. If you do, take the time to track the actual battery performance over a few days. Your "impressions" of what you're doing and how much battery is being used are VERY unreliable. Write down your tracking information on an hour by hour schedule for three days and see what's happening.

    Finally, before concluding you have a bad battery or some other problem, keep in mind that when you first get your device you're likely to use it much more extensively than you will a few weeks later, even if you're a heavy user. The novelty of a new device like the KF will keep you fascinated with it at first and it's easy to pass several hours with wifi on and the screen blazing away as you explore it.

    I've found that simply turning off the screen (short press the on/off switch) maintains the battery at a more or less constant level. It will very slowly drain compared to turning it off altogether but I'd estimate it would take several days to do so. Can't say for sure since I'm not willing to not use the KF for days at a time.

    Agree, like anything new (baseball glove per say) it needs to be broken into. Try to max use of it, approx 15% before charging it. It'll increase over time.
