Folks at Phone Arena have recently conducted an extensive battery life test by pitting Google's flagship tablet, the Nexus 9, against a bunch of competitors to determine the fastest charging time and the best battery life performance among the given devices.

Quite interestingly, Google's 9in slate comes out on top with a whopping 9 hours and 24 minutes of battery life during the custom web-script test, which is designed to replicate the power consumption of typical real-life usage.

On the contrary, the Nexus 9 finishes second behind Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 in the charging time test, with a charging time of 254 minutes for a single recharge from zero to full.

The battery-life scores for Nexus 9's nearest competitors are listed below (higher is better):

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 - 8 hours and 58 minutes

Apple iPad Air 2 - 7 hours and 27 minutes

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 - 7 hours and 2 minutes

The charging time scores for tablets finishing in first three places are as follows (lower is better):

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 – 188 minutes

Google Nexus 9 – 254 minutes

Sony Xperia Z2 tablet – 342 minutes
