Just for comparison here are 2 other 7" tablets that I have with Battery HD on them.

Nexus 7 1st gen 32GB 100% charged, 50% brightness, wifi on: (one week old)

standby - 275 hrs
music - 21 hrs 41 min
video - 12 hrs 55 min
internet - 9 hrs 28 min

Lenovo A2107 100% charged, 50% brightness, wifi on: (January 2013)

standby - 275 hrs
music - 12 hrs 8 min
video - 10 hrs 25 min
internet - also 10 hrs 25 min

& My Kindle Fire HD 8.9 32GB 100% charged, 50% brightness, wifi on: (December 2012)

standby - 275 hrs
music - 16 hrs 40 min
video - 10 hrs 1 min
internet - 8 hrs 13 min

I usually run the tests on each tablet and set the notification at 100% charged and 40% charged because I read an article that said to maximize battery life, let your tablet discharge down to 15% and fully charge it, but after that don't let it go much below a 40% charge to maximize the number of recharge cycles you can do. Hopefully, doing this, I can get about 3 years out of them!
