Tablets traditionally have a better battery life than smartphones. Logical, because the batteries are often more powerful to start with and on average less time is spent on them. On the other hand, who wants to make use of the tablet with one family, preferably has one that reads for as long as possible.
These are the five best models.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S4
Samsung’s newest high-end tablet has become slightly thicker. A big advantage of this is the battery capacity, which is much higher than the 6000mAh of the Tab S3 with 7300mAh (mAh = milliampere, the most common standard for tablet, smartphone and laptop batteries). The screen is now also somewhat larger and probably slurps more energy, but a device with this battery life is considered to be moderate
Apple iPad 2018
The latest edition of the iPad has a battery capacity of an impressive 8827mAh. More work, for a tablet with a screen diameter of 9.7 inches (24.64 centimetres). With continuous browsing, this tablet lasts about nine hours. The disadvantage of the iPads is that it can take a long time before they are fully charged again: you can count on an hour or four before it is completely full.
Microsoft Surface Go
The battery in the Surface Go is not as powerful as the other devices in this overview, but the light-footed hardware compensates a bit. In this way, you can still enjoy a battery life of just over seven hours when browsing the Internet continuously.
Huawei MediaPad M5
The new MediaPad, which runs on Android 8.0, has a great screen, attention to good sound and a fine design. And all for a not too crazy price. With its 7500mAh battery, this tablet should not be inferior to most other devices in this list.
iPad Pro 2018
Finally, the heaviest iPad that exists: the 12.9-inch (32.8 cm) iPad Pro has a battery with capacity of more than 10,000mAh. In mixed use (browsing and watching video) it comes out between 9.5 and 10 hours
