T510i Poor battery life or normal??

Hi All,

 

Another question.

 

I have a T510i with the 6 cell battery. I hardly use the battery and usually have it out of the notebook in my case. I make sure it does not fully discharge while in my bag.

 

I only get just under 2 hours...1 hour 50 ish life out of the battery.

Is this about right?

Usually a 6 cell should last about 3 hours or so. But this also depends on how intensive the laptop is being used.

Your T510i doesn't have discrete graphics does it?

The 6-cell on a T510 tends to get 2.5 to 3 hours with discrete graphics... It should be a lot better with integrated.
