Battery life is too short

HP Recommended
HP Omen EK0013dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

I just purchased a new laptop HP Omen EK0013dx 1 day ago

 

I have a problem with the battery life

 

Web surfing less than 2 hours and gaming don't last more than 1 hour

 

Is this normal?

What is your HP Omen EK0013dx ? Is it an OMEN Laptop - 15-ek0013dx ? Its specs

 

         https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06656951

 

It uses 6-cell, 70.9 Wh Li-ion and it can use up to 200W. Now you can work out how long battery would last depending on your usage. When idle, machine may consume 30W therefore, browsing may consume 35W to 40W that why you only get around 2hrs.

 

Regards.

@Banhien 

Thanks for your reply

 

Yes as described it is 15-ek0013dx

 

Mathematically what you said is correct, but I cannot validate the numbers in terms of consumption but it seems to me that 30 Watts as a consumption  is excessively high

 

What I am asking is the  real life test whom owned this product , if 2 hours in websurfing consumption is normal or not

 

Before I bought the product I went through a lot of reviews, It gave me the ease of 4 to 7 hours of websurfing based on the background processes,  which encouraged me

 

So 30 watts consumption as you said in  only websurfing  with 25% CPU utilisation and 0% GPU , don't you think that it is very high to be possible?

 

Thanks and best regards 

Ahmed Essam
