I'm on my second Kindle now, the Kindle Paperwhite after donating my old one to my sister. It's probably my favourite gadget, but while I love it I think the battery life absolutely sucks. I recall ads saying it lasts up to 8 weeks and even on various online reviews compliments its battery life, but mine probably needs at least once a fortnight.

Is anyone else having the same issue, or is it just me?
