I have the SU9300. Battery Bar shows 5.34 from a full charge.
That is a good point about battery capacity, but actual instantaneous consumption varies quite a lot depending on usage so battery lifetime is probably the best guide if capacity is known.
In my case, I have a 44WH battery, a slice, my processor is SL9400, and generally usage is browsing with little video - so not very demanding. BT and WiFi are both on.
I use Battery Bar Free V3.3.3 which shows about -10,967 mW right now, total capacity 85WH, and battery lifetime about 6:45, battery wear 0.0%
I would be really a lot more helpful if people could post their processor configuration - there 3 processors available - 1.2, 1.6 and 1.86Ghz.
The other possible big factor is the BIOS installed - there have been several updates since many of these systems shipped - mine is still way back at F.04
Are people with battery life problems using the faster processor? Old BIOS?
