It might have a 7 hour battery life if you turn off wi-fi and close the lid and have nothing running in the background. Now if you are actually using the laptop to connect to the internet or watch a movie that uses much more memory and more of the cpu you use up more power from the battery so if you are gettin 2.5 hours with just general use it might be pretty good. (Also depends on which battery you have... The 3 cell or 6 cell) I would suggest turning the brightness down on the screen and that will definately help with your battery life.

Welcome to the world of unreal advertising. 3 hours is a realistic max.
You could change the sound to off, the screen to dim, the internet wifi off, etc. to get better battery but of course, that would limit the system.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Can not charge 100%

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
