In my experience it's pretty accurate.

In real life use, I find it better than what I expected. Because normally I only listen in Satelite mode when it is in a dock and powered. When I listen on batteries, it is usually in wifi mode around the house or at the gym I just listen to MP3's or some recorded content. In those "Offline" mode or wifi it does much better than the 2 hr and 4 hr battery life limits. I've never yet run out of batteries.

I believe the only issue here is that there is a lurking bug that sometimes the satelite receiver stays on during wifi use and it kills the battery. I have not experienced this but others have. It is due to be fixed in an upcoming firmware release. This would be noticable if the unit got very hot while listening in wifi mode. Normally it stays cool in that mode. If that were the case, you would just unplug the battery and reboot it which I think is the solution to this issue.

Bottom line: Batteries are working better than expected.
