Windows 8 Battery Life

I wanted to get a quick post out there regarding Windows 8 battery life.

I’ve been at a meeting today where I’ve been using my Windows 8 Lenovo X220. The machine has the standard Lenovo hard disk (and not an SSD like some of my other machines) and has the standard 6 cell battery.

I left the house with this morning with about 80% battery, used the laptop for about four hours for note taking with OneNote 2013 and now I’m at home, I’ve still got 50% battery.

That’s some pretty amazing consumption if you ask me. Give me a 9 cell extended battery and an SSD to replace the rotating disk, and I think I could quite easily get a full days’ compute out of this machine.
