    Hi guys,

    I was planning on buying this laptop, but hearing about the fan noise and the battery degradation issues has kept me from pulling the trigger.

    I’d be grateful for any feedback that you guys could provide. Thanks a lot. Cheers.

    Fan noise yes is a bit of a pain at times, on with just surfing the net using Chrome. But all depends on the bios version how bad it is. Battery life I can still manage about 7 hours on mine. The main thing is to remain on the factory image I fine. My clean install I was only getting 5 hours of battery life. By far I think it’s one of the best laptops for the price. I can’t wait for the new model this year.

    Hi Chris,

    not going to hijack this thread in any way, just curious when you mentioned battery life can be worse on a clean install of W10 vs. stock factory image. What are the reasons for this? I can only imagine it is due to different power plan settings?

    I have a Teclast F7 SSD version that gets only about 4h battery life on a clean install (W10 2019 LTSC) and light use (Word, PDFs, Firefox, no videos, games and 50% brightness, stock power limit in BIOS) whereas you claimed something like 7-8h in your review. I did not test battery life on factory image, because I went straight for a clean install (to remove chinese stuff). I am really searching for ways to make the battery last longer. Other reviews also claim around 3-4h. Somehow it’s driving me nuts, those missing hours  😀 If somebody happens to have the power plan settings from the stock image, that would be greatly appreciated!

    /edit: just went through my power plan settings without finding anything suspicious (stock balanced plan)

    Hi Chris!

    I would also be interested, why the chinese factory image performs so much better regarding battery life than the reinstalled english iso.

    I bought mine in March (i5 version with MX150) and has been working great. The “normal” fan noise on the latest bios was better, in my case I don’t do heavy load most of the time and whilst travelling I use the battery saving mode which means passively cooled (no noise whatsoever).

    The problem was when one of the fans started making grinding noises, which was solved temporarily by applying grease. After few months it started making noises again and the one on the other side too. I ended up purchasing 2 replacement fans from Aliexpress and replacing both today, and I am so glad I did as the noise has gone back to normal. The replacement fans had metal blades rather than plastic ones, I am not sure if that would make a difference.

    On the battery, I get 6 to 7 hours during normal usage, and 9 ish on battery saving mode (no MX150 and processors running at 1 GHz tops). I don’t regret the purchase of the price, I love the keyboard, the screen and the speakers. I install a 970 512 SSD and it flies since, although I am still running to original OS in the original drive.

    Cheers

    I have found the battery life reduction from the “stock” images seems to be related to what services are running in the background and some Google Chrome Site Isolation / Malware settings [software reporter tool] (if Chrome is installed).

    When I stripped out most of the “stuff” that is not need out of the Windows 10 base image (Direct from Microsoft), stripped out all the unneeded drivers, removed / disabled all the “bloatware”, the machine ran WAY FASTER and battery life doubled.  I use NTlite to strip the Win10 image.  I have attached the files to turn off Chrome taking over the CPU, just remember to go into chrome://flags  and OPT-OUT of the SITE ISOLATION TRIAL.   Run the attachments as admin and reboot after.

    I included a sample session from NTlite, but it does not have all the listings of the drivers that were removed or added.  Just a base to start from (its based on W10 PRO)

    (attachments were stripped out, so putting in text)

    I have found the battery life reduction from the “stock” images seems to be related to what services are running in the background and some Google Chrome Site Isolation / Malware settings [software reporter tool] (if Chrome is installed). When I stripped out most of the “stuff” that is not need out of the Windows 10 base image (Direct from Microsoft), stripped out all the unneeded drivers, removed / disabled all the “bloatware”, the machine ran WAY FASTER and battery life doubled.

    Hey wilmafingerdo, do you think it is possible to disable the mentioned services AFTER you have an installed and well established system, which you don’t want to reinstall?

     

    Cheers,
