Battery drain

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

I've had my laptop for around 3 months now and I keep having issues with the battery life. I find that I have to charge my laptop fully at least twice a day, if not more, despite mainly using it for basic things such as roaming the internet and listening to music. As a uni student, this is becoming a real problem as I'm unable to charge it during lectures.

It's really disappointing considering the main reason I chose this laptop was for its long battery life.

Any suggestions of what to do?

Never use, if charge the battery and turn, off the computer.

Down the bright of screen to minimum.

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

 

I understand that the battery drains faster when playing music, but it drains at an abnormal speed. I have to recharge after only around 5/6 hours, half the time hp claims the laptop will run for.
