    My SP2 battery isn't getting anything close to 6 hours on normal use. Does anyone know of an app that performs a standardized battery run down test and provides a report of some sort?

    Sorry, no answer from my side.
    But have you checked Display brightness? @100% mine wouldn't reach 6hrs either, but at "normal" setting it's up to about 8hrs.

    Have you tried running the built in battery report? There's a thread here explaining how to run it. It generates a report talking about mWh, so a measurable figure. It doesn't neccessarily tell you anything about the uptime, but it should tell you, if your battery is within it's specs (42mWh)

    I wish there was a common app we could use to compare. It seems everyone has different ways of testing.
