I did my own test of OLPC battery life. I was able to use it for
approximately 3h45 without recharging.
If you use it in low energy black and white mode you can use it for a
much longer time. (I didn't test exactly how much time).I suppose that
is why in some documentation you can see very long time like (maybe)
12 hours.
About solar panel, I red somewhere that it is possible to plug
directly a solar panel but no more details. Too bad.
