this is exactly why I stopped buying "branded" laptops and took the plunge and got myself china branded ones.
no more acer laptops. no more anus laptops. no more hp laptops.
laptops as in plural ok. i buy a bunch of laptops every year.
I got a Chuwi. rock solid. I bought icube. rock solid. battery is huge as well. and most recent purchase was alldocube thinker. super, super awesome laptop. super bright 3000x2000 touchscreen. 10k mah battery somemore.
My 6mnth old msi gaming laptop I can't take anywhere battery is pittance 30mins~1hr not gaming I would be surprise. I might need get new portable laptop. That china base laptop on YouTube kinda thin I a bit scared to open it might break something lol.
Well I got myself an ultrabook grade, so yeah.
I need the battery life, and this one more than delivers. set it to standby, and it'll last for more than a day of normal usage, no joke.
if I use it almost continuously with almost zero brightness (still very bright compared to other laptops, the screen is seriously bright), it's about 5-7 hours.
