I was getting really frustrated with what a battery pig my NX was. Stumbled across the backlight (just never occured to me before) and turned it down to the lowest setting my eyes could handle, which is about 1/4 - 1/3. Have seen a HUGE increase in battery life. My eyes have become accustomed to this level of brightness now and I don't even realize that it is lower than before.
I used to keep my NR all the way down, but I have actually been keeping my NX at full brightness. The screen is just so awesome looking, I can't help it. Plus, after a full day I come home and I still have 4.20V on the unit... which is my max charge. I'm sure this will stop happening as the unit gets older, but I just can't believe the battery life I'm getting from this thing. It is actually doing better than my NR did.
Wow ocell, i tried full brightness, and man, mine goes down fast. I could probably make it a whole day, but i'd probably be below 50%. I find it very interesting though at how many people do use full brightness. Although it makes sense, if you can get through a full day, and charge at night.... why not... i mean, i can even charge inbetween classes. I think at full, i could go 2 full days of use until it would dwindle, not good, but with as bright and as clear as screen as the nx has, it's acceptable.
I am seriously starting to get creeped out by the battery life on my NX. I keep it at full brightness and I'm always taking pictures, reading my book, or recording videos... and I come home with it still at 4.20V.

Is it possible your battery monitor isn't working properly?
I run mine at 53.45 percent. I have calibrated eyeballs! A little over half, OK?
