$100 LY-706 MID Android tablet teardown

Battery pack

The LY-706 has a battery pack with two 3.7V 5.55Wh batteries. I've read several complaints about the device having extremely poor battery life. And, TechRepublic's own Mark Kaelin reported getting only two hours of battery life under normal use.

For the record, neither the FocalPrice site nor the documentation included with the LY-706 lists an average battery life.
