After the update to Jellybean, the battery life tanked for me. Letting it sit overnight with nothing on, it drained 1-2 percent per hour. Oddly enough, having Wi-Fi on drained it slower. From what I could tell on the Lenovo forums, was that the tablet wasn't going into sleep mode or whatever and was always running at full speed.
I don't know if Lenovo has updated it since so if possible, keep it at Ice Cream Sandwich. I ended up returning the refurbished model; a pity, since I like the micro-HDMI on my tablets.

If you decide to get a Lenovo A2109 make sure you try it in person first. The viewing angles of the tablet are not the slick superb ones that are in most phone and tablets nowadays (IPS or OLED), but rather is the TN kind, which means that it's "reasonably good" for 3 angles, and very bad with major discoloration on the 4th.
I've had this tablet for a few months. It's a good tablet for the specs. The viewing angles are the only downside, but it's only been an issue a couple times for me. Mainly, it seems like I'm looking directly at the screen while doing things, so the viewing angle issue is not a problem. All of the ports and expandable memory are very nice. The tablet is built well and feels solid. The screen is a fingerprint magnet, so it needs to be wiped off periodically. This is a nice price for this tablet. A very nice case/cover can be found HERE.
