Battery Life Test

In an attempt to quantitatively measure the Eee Pad Slider's battery life in a controlled benchmark environment, we also ran a test in which we set up a webpage with a mix of graphics and text. The page automatically refreshes every three minutes.

Untethered Up-Time Measurements

For this test, we set the tablet's display to 50% brightness, which is still plenty bright and easy on the eyes. The Slider was able to last well over 8 hours on its own before it powered down.

This is a fairly new test in our set of benchmarks, so we don't have a lot of other tablet data yet to which we can compare. However, we have run the test on a few smartphones, the Motorola Xoom and Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1. The graph above shows how the Eee Pad Slider compares. Versus the Motorola product, we pulled an additional 3.5hrs out of the Eee Pad Slider, coming in just shy of the Transformer's time.  At almost 9 hrs of up-time browsing the web, the Eee Pad Slider's battery life is impressive.
