Crap, I thought it was doing okay, it had dropped to 40% after light usage for the last 5 days, terrible performance compared to what it was but I was starting to think it might be the battery meter being a bit iffy but today I came home and it was completely dead so it barely made 5 days from a full charge.

Ill give it one more chance on a full charge overnight then Ill try factory reset and one book at a time that I know never gave any trouble in the past.

Fully charged overnight to 100% yesterday, down to 85% today.

Dropped to 65% after 2 days where I only read about 5 pages of the latest Expanse novel, so I factory reset and charged it to 100% with no books loaded. If the battery drops again Ill give up and buy a new reader.

Unless anyone has any better ideas?

Stop looking at the % and charge it whenever you don't read?

I know they're advertized as "runs weeks on a single charge" but... well, so far it hasn't been true for any eReader I owned, so... even my Kindle (which I don't use at all) runs out of battery all the time (can't turn it off...).

In the end it's normal to charge them regularly and connecting to a charger is only natural...

If it can't sustain even a few hours of reading that'd be a different matter but not clear to me if that is the case for you ("dropped to 65% after 2 days" sounds like there is plenty of charging opportunities)

If only ANY phone in day long use even lasted 2 days.
65% in two days if not being used is terrible.
65% if reading 10 hours a day for two days is very usable.
Is light off and WiFi off?

Yeah but the whole point of this thread is that the battery suddenly started draining really quickly, dead in 4-5 days even with zero use, then I bought a new battery and its behaving the exact same way, Im trying to diagnose a problem here.

Its not acceptable to me to wake up in the morning and find an ereader has dropped 20% overnight and could be completely dead in 4 days sometimes.

Then again Im having to use wifi workarounds or disassembling the device just to get books on it since usb stopped working on any pc I try so maybe Ill just give up and try a different device.

Have you thought that there might be a link between the non functioning USB port and the battery drain? Maybe a short between some of the connections inside the port?
