Best Battery Autonomy for Tablets

Tablets for the marathon man (figuratively speaking). You have to keep going all day long and those devices are the most likely to last as long as you do.

Most Endurance US$290 - US$490

If finding a power outlet during the day is cramping your style, the following tablets will serve you best. Be warned: this list was built with absolutely no regards for price. If you're strapped for cash, scroll down to the budget section for the longest lasting models at below-average prices.

Most Endurance under $300

Need something cheaper? No worries; here are the lonest lasting tablets priced below average. Some tweaking and scrifices (like tuning the WiFi off to turning the screen's luminosity down) might be required but you'll have options.

There might be some overlap with the list above, but everything down here is considered budget-friendly.
