Hp x360 Spectre QHD Battery Life

Spectre x360 13.3 QHD
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My x360 QHD Spectre has a low battery life in the beginning it has a 7 hour life with medium brightness then it's like 4:30 hours with Battery Saver on mode and I already removed bloatware and I only watch movies on it but when I game it's 2:30 hours (Fan gets loud and laptop gets hot) I'm pretty sure the battery life should be 10 hours

Hi @AbualhasanHatif,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

I have looked into your issue about your HP Spectre 360 x2 and issues with the battery hours. Here is a link that will help. Go into your power options. Select Balanced and click Change plan settings. Click Change advanced power settings.

 

Please let me know how it goes.

Hp x360 Spectre QHD Battery Life

Sadly, the Spectre does not live up to its advertised battery life.  My QHD 13" Spectre was also advertised at 10 hours - I could understand getting 9, or maybe only 8, but I did a battery test multiple times and repeatedly come in at about 4.5 hours, just leaving the computer on and not actually doing anything with it!!  It's horrible.

Yep...I also did contact the HP support through live chat and they said that it's a 3 cell battery which only hold a 6 hours charge which is a lie because I have over 6 hours of charge with a battery report to prove it

Wait what I meant is they're already set to HP recommend there's no balanced option but I haven't chosen high performance I never changed the battery settings to begin with

Hi @AbualhasanHatif,

 

Oh I did not mean you had change this option. Sometimes a Windows update will do this. It was just an fyi.

 

Thanks.
