Battery Life on HP Spectre less than 5 hours

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-ae0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am getting very limited battery on my HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13-ae0xx.  Battery life seems to be about 4 - 5 hours at most.  I did a battery report from the command prompt and the data confirms this estimate.  By HP's own estimate, my battery life is around 5 hours.  I am constantly amazed by how quickly this thing drains.  I don't see any apps that I don't recognized consuming an unexpected amount of battery.  Battery capacity since purchase declined from about 60,000mWh down to 57,000mWh, only a 5% decline, so it does not appear that the battery is degraded.  Anyone have any clues as to why life is so short?  Thank you for any help you can offer.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community. 


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, 
The average laptop battery is good for around 400 recharges cycles. After that, it starts to lose its capacity to hold a charge. This is about one and a half to three years of battery life for the average user. As the rechargeable battery begins to fail, the running time of the battery begins to decline.
