Android tablet with best battery life?

My cheapo Android tablet finally gave up the ghost. I'm in the market for a new, nicer one and thought about getting the Nexus 7*. But searching around, it seems to have a lot of problems with battery life, even when on stand-by. I don't play games or watch videos or even listen to music much on a tablet. My main use case is reading and annotating pdf articles and books, especially when traveling (long flights) when battery life is kinda important. Are these battery life concerns for the Nexus 7 founded? Is there another Android** tablet that does better?

*I just saw today that there are rumors of a new Nexus tablet coming out soon, but I have some work trips coming up and can't really wait. Plus, the prices are coming down for the Nexus 7.
**I know iPads have great battery life, but if there are any Android tablets that have at least decent battery life, that would be easier for me. I can switch if I need to, but I'm already familiar with the Android apps that work well for me (and I've already bought them!).
