    Thanks for this

    I have spent a bit of time researching through all the mags and web sites and I find that even a low estimate is about 3 or 4 hours and a max of 7- even the magazines doing bench tests . I'm getting about 2 at best . I wonder if it's to do with some ritual I should have gone through when I started

Battery life on laptops is like the mileage estimates on new car windows....it's wishful thinking. You would have to set the power management to shut the screen off after 5 minutes of inactivity, shut the drives off after 6 minutes and send the thing into hibernation after 10 minutes to get better batttery life.

    Not at all, you might just have a bad battery. I would buy another one on E-Bay and compare them, at least that way you'll have a definitive answer and a spare battery.

Try a atx-reset.
No battery, no adapter and push the powerbutton for 1 minute.
Put in the adapter and try again.

Short battery life when idle - Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD2000


Strange, mine lasts a very very very long time, but in a standby state (power on, just close the lcd lid). Have you tried to just keep it in the standby state? I will never turn it off unless I need to, like to change sd cards, because it is super quick to capture video and it does not kill the battery.
I have 2 of these dual cameras and John is quite right, the Sanyo HD2000 is not a "normal" camera, its quite abnormally exceptional and way ahead of its time! Having a f1.8 lens, 1/2.5" cmos, 1080p @ 60 FRAMES/second, really makes it not "Normal". You will need a better computer to process the crazy 1080p/60fps images.

The battery life of my ku990 is abnormal


The two main causes of battery life loss that no one thinks of are:

backlight settings (if you don't really need the backlight to stay on for 60 seconds after the last button press, lower it. this is a huge waste of battery life and it is easily changed in the settings menu of nearly every phone i have seen)

poor signal areas (when you have low signal, you phone wastes its battery life searching for acquirable signal. if it is unable to locate the signal, it will continue to search. this search uses up your battery life quite rapidly)

Hp dv5190us randomly restarts


If the laptop is restarting and you mention that you did a system restore so it is definetly not a software issue. It seems to be a hardware malfunction either on the motherboard or the power supply unit inside the laptop.Please contact HP .. Good luck.

IBook Blueberry Battery Problem


What you could do is that you could look around online like on ebay or on a great site called www.ifixit.com . That is a great site and they have a lot of great parts for both mac laptops and iPods/iPhones.

Good Luck!

Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it.
