The battery life is not good. I have to charge it every couple of days. Apparently there is a leather charging cover but that was not available to me in Australia, yet I paid $529 because I was forced to buy the 32gb model as nothing else was available with 3G + wifi in the Oasis in Australia. I was unable to buy from the States as they conveniently won’t ship the other Oasis models here. This is my seventh kindle and I don’t want to be disappointed with it, but it seems each model gets worse not better. The page turn buttons are pretty dodgy as well. I think Amazon is ripping us off in Australia and if there is a cover that aids the battery charge why can’t I buy it.
