I am experience pretty poor battery life with my tablet. When watching movies at 480p at 50% brightness without wifi or bluetooth, I get about 2h and 30 minutes. Its even less if I use the tablet, I would say less than 2 hours. Anyone else have this issue with their i9 tablet?
I envy Chris who gets 4-5 hours of battery or probably even more from this tablet!June 4, 2016 at 2:03 pm #39835Chris GKeymaster

Wow that doesn’t sound right, does it power off at 2% or test and see if it gets stuck at 7% and might keep working for a few hours more. It’s as if your only running on one battery cell. Or have a miscalibrated battery reading only 50%.
Try to run it down that low that it powers off, keep trying to power it on and then leave it to charge overnight and see if that makes a difference.
Also looks in the task manager and see that nothing is hogging the CPU in the background causing this.

It powers off at 2%. I have ran it down a few times now until it powers off, havent test to start it again, I just go and charge it again.
I will look at the task manager and go into flight mode. See if that helps. But yeah it seems like I am only running at one battery cell :/.June 6, 2016 at 6:56 pm #40046
I tried it again with flight mode, and now I am getting around 5 hours of battery time when playing a 480p movie. I guess that is okay?
