So if you're realistic with the usage( i dont know anyone who uses a tablet and doesnt wear out the battery in a day), its probably like 2.72... still half the price of a latte.

My dad has the new iPad and he does charge it every day. HHowever he uses it for work and when he does charge it, the battery is around 60%. So really that would mean for at least him, that it would actually cost less right?

Dafaq! LMAO I've never heard that before, I love it. My PC's battery really sucks, seems like whenever I unplug it, it will just die!?

It's for powering the PC, of course, not charging it. I've made it all clear now in the article, but thanks for the catch :)

i never charged my desktop pc before, perhaps at the time of selling it the pc city forgot to tell me that i need to charge it every now and then. But now i'll charge it every day. THANKS phonearena for this valuable informarion.

12ah times allmost 4v and heat from charger and battery during charging gives you like 60 watt so 60x365=21kwh and in my country it gives you 1 cup of coffee

So, how does this compare with other tablets? If it is the same, then I would say that you can extend this article to encompass all tablets and not just iPads.

Apple fluff confirmed, given that the batt life of New Ipad is rated at about 8 hours, by Apple. Asus rates the Transformer, without the keyboard dock, at 10 hours, 16 with dock.
