Battery life seems fairly short. How long should

\015 Battery life seems fairly short. How long should the battery supply operation time?\015

Answers :

In most laptops the standard idle life is around 3 - 4 hours. The drain from the internet can cut this down to between 1 - 1 and a half hours. Using games is around the same or less than what the internet takes and if your using an office application it is around 3 - 4 hours.
Using the laptop for power hungry multitasking will reduce battery life dramatically.
