HP EliteBook x360 1030 G3 battery life well below announced?
Produto: EliteBook x360 G3 i7 Ref. 3ZH10EA
Sistema Operacional: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I purchased the EliteBook x360 G3 i7 Ref. 3ZH10EA not two months ago, and I have consistently noted that the battery seems to discharg at a fast pace. I mean like some 30% per hour. This doing little more than light work on Citrix // SAP, so not even really utilizing the CPu at all. CPU idling at an average 8 to 10% and not much going on. Brightness is around the 50% mark.
This laptop is announced with "up to 18 hours", yet I am getting nothing close to this. At th e current clip, I'm out of battery well before 5 hours.
Can someone confirm or let me know if there might be something I need to do to fix the issue? This looks like a laptop version of Dieselgate, where the announced values are overly inflated at non-realistic usage cases to pump up the numbers. However, I am willing to concede there may be some underlying issue or that I might even have a defective laptop.
