While running Android, advertising claims the Nexus 7 has a 8 - 11 hours of battery time, Many users claim to get around 6 - 9 hours depending on what type of activity they are doing. Have there been any benchmarks done on the tablet while running Ubuntu? Is it Better or Worse?

Preliminary testing has shown comparable battery life. There are plans for more rigorous testing in the near future. Stay Tuned!!

I've done some research on this too: http://smackerelofopinion.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/non-linear-characteristics-in-draining.html

My findings are:

Screen not dimmed, idle: ~12 hours battery life. Screen not dimmed, 4 CPUs fully loaded: ~7 hours battery life. I've not yet exercised the GPU.
