Spectre x360 Battery Life

Spectre x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I was not super sure as to where to post this so I put "Notebook Video, Display and Touch".

So I bought this new HP Spectre x360 about a week ago during the cyber sales in preparation for classes at University next semester as I was wanting something small, lightwieght, and with a long lasting battery that could get me though the shcool day. I love everything about this laptop except it seems to have a very short battery life. When I bought it, all the tech reviews and the official HP website claimed an 11 to 12 hour battery life, however I cannot seem to get more than around 4 or 5. Perhaps the battery is bad?

I do not know too much about computers so I had my brother help me choose the model. I have the i7 6500u, 16gbs of ram, and a 512gb SSD. My brother said with these specific components, the battery life could be effected a little bit but was under the impression that it would still be able to serve me at least 8 hours while at school. Should I contact HP support about the battery life problem?


Thank you for any advice you can give me.

Thanks for reaching out to HP Support Forums. One stop for all solutions about your HP product.

I was going through your post and would like to help you.


The reviews are like the lab results but very difficult to achieve in normal circumstances. 4-5 hrs battery backup for a 6 cell is an ideal back up time.


Hope this helps. Please share more to serve you.




Glad to help you. I work for HP
