Windows 10 has added functionality that may need more juice out of your pc battery.

 

You can increase your battery power by reducing the display brightness and perhaps turning off wifi (if not used)

 

I believe 3 hours is good enough for any notebook.

battery life also depletes after a certain period of time.

Hi,

you can check your battery status thru HP Support Assistant, it should be preinstalled on your PC. Also check your drivers, and BIOS, if there are new version, they can optimise the batery life.

Hi 

 

>>try this fallowing step 

 

In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.
1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .
2. Expand the Batteries category.
3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

 

 

>>if you still  do a battrey test in HPSA 

>>if it fails 

>>call hp 1800-474-6836 

>>get it replaced
