Battery life is pretty good on it. I think the impressive part is I get 6 hours of battery life with everything on, including wifi. The built in wifi and the ease to use this to network your robot to any wifi network is an incredible feature.
Before realizing this I was looking into ways to have a small robot communicate with my laptop, but this will be better for me.
Can anyone recommend to me a way to read information directly from electronics via a USB port that I can look into?
