    hi sam,

    yes...about 2 hrs and change with the keyboard base.....and another 5 - 5.5 hours with the tablet portion....

    with the windows 10, it cant seem to accurately measure the battery life...it seems im getting 7 hrs total...which for most cases, should be enough...

    i wish someone would run a CPU benchmark on this device or can someone tell me a free website to run benchmarks?

    Can the screen on this be mounted in reverse direction, similar to Thinkpad Helix?

    I am having an issue with my HP Pro x2 612 and I am wondering if anyone else is seeing it too. I am getting significant battery drainage while the device is shut down/turned off. Is anyone else seeing this? I am making 100% sure that I am clearly shutting the device down using the Windows start menu and not by using the power button on the device.

    Is there something I am missing or do I have a defective device?

    No drain when shut down.

    Make sure and go into the ADVANCED Power settings and adjust the
    "When the Power Button is pressed" Choose : Shut vDown
    Mine came with it adjusted to "Sleep"

    Start Menu is only a shortcut, not the real adjustment.
    Try that and see if it the problem.

    The latches on the keyboard have left facing hooks.
    Plus, the keyboard has a curve to accept
    the screen and you could not close it even
    if you could mount the screen backwards.

    Hi Yao:
    Mine seems to be getting a little better with use.
    I can go all afternoon(6 hrs), using on and off still have
    about 35%-45% left. (both batteries total)
    1st battery still runs down in a couple of hours of constant use.

    Yeah, I already had this set and I checked to make sure that was the case. It definitely seems like something is going on, as I just shut my tablet down yesterday with a full charge, and it is only at 90% today when I booted it up. I am wondering if this thing is defective somehow.

    Something is draining it for sure.
    We can't take the batteries out any more to check.

    Does it still drain when NOT plugged into the doclk?
    (I had problems getting it to charge clear up to 100%
    at first..)
