Which Laptops have the Best Battery Life?

clock June 14, 2010 20:48 by author Ty

Laptop Battery Life HP Dell Apple Acer Toshiba Gateway

Sometimes a long laptop battery life is the key factor in why we own a laptop. CNET has done some extensive testing on which laptops have the longest battery life. Of course a netbook would be the winner in this category, but CNET has classified them into different classes. These classes are netbooks, 13-inch laptops, midsize laptops, and desktop replacements.

Each laptop manufacturer has their own determination on how long their laptop's battery life is supposed to last. So instead of having these results skewed, CNET did a benchmark by using a standard video playback test to see how long each laptop lasted playing a movie. Below were their results.

Netbooks (10/11-inch displays) Battery life
Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 (SD) 459 minutes
MSI Wind U160 438 minutes
Acer Aspire One 532h-2326 429 minutes
 
13-inch laptops
Apple MacBook, Spring 2010 387 minutes
Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch, Spring 2010 360 minutes
Toshiba Satellite T135D-S1324 359 minutes
 
Midsize laptops (14/15-inch displays)
Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch Spring 2010 356 minutes
Gateway EC5809u 343 minutes
HP Pavilion dv4-2165dx 334 minutes
 
Desktop replacments (16/17/18-inch displays)
Toshiba A505-S6025 268 minutes
Asus K60IJ-RBLX05 205 minutes
HP Pavilion dv7-3165dx 178 minutes

Windows 7 Causes False Battery Reports with Notebooks

clock June 4, 2010 20:35 by author John

A lot of Windows 7 users have been getting a warning that their battery has a problem when there really is no problem at all. Microsoft says it's a hardware issue and some system firmware may need to be upgraded on the user's end. The computer system's basic BIOS may need a firmware upgrade in order to communicate properly with the Windows 7 OS. Other laptop users upgrading to Windows 7 from Vista have experienced the same problems and also have had charging issues with their laptop batteries.

Windows 7 There is a Problem with your Battery

With Apple dominating the tablet market, Windows has released Windows Embedded Compact 7 to operate specifically for commercial and consumer devices, such as tablets, smart phones, etc.

Dual Screen Laptop Display, Tablet and Tilt by Onkyo

clock June 3, 2010 19:05 by author Ty

As each year goes by, we see higher capacity batteries available in smaller sizes, and dual screen laptop setup ready to go by Onkyo! The last cool laptop I saw was the HP Pavilion HDX 20.1 in 1080P LCD screen with a tilt function and fingerprint login, SATA, Firewire USB plugs, Bluetooth and Wireless connections a few years back and I actually bought it to replace my desktop. This new dual screen laptop is a lot cooler than the new small netbooks with tiny LCD screens, and a lot more can be done with two tiny LCD screens! Personally, I think this is a lot cooler than the iPad and a lot more work can be done with a tiny dual screen netbook. We can raise the coolness factor if we go and install or dual boot the OS with Ubuntu.

Dual Screen Laptop Specs: AMD Athlon Neo CPU, 4GB of RAM, 320GB HD, Windows 7 Home Edition, Two 10.2-inch displays and the screens can twist around to be used as a tablet. Battery life is only 3.7 hours Max.

When do I Replace my Laptop Battery?

clock June 1, 2010 19:34 by author Ty

If your laptop battery is a few years old and does not last very long when it is unplugged, then you might be due for a replacement laptop battery. Laptop batteries can usually last between 3-5 years with 300-500 discharge /charge cycles.

Hewlett-Packard has released FAQ information on their lithium-ion batteries and smart battery technology which can be found on their HP battery information page. HP battery life quotes, "Under normal discharge loads, Li-Ion batteries have a life span of between 300 and 500 cycles."

Apple offers a similar FAQ information page on their laptop batteries and their long lasting life span which can be found on the Apple battery information page. Apple battery life quotes, "A properly maintained Apple notebook battery is designed to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity after 300 full charge and discharge cycles."

Between HP and Apple, a typical battery life for today's laptop should be at least 300 discharge / charge cycles, maintaining at least an 80% capacity for up to 3 years. Mileage will vary from laptop to laptop.
