i noticed since the first day i received my netbook, which has only been 2-3 days ago.. the estimation on how long my battery will last always sporadically changes. at the lowest lighting and on wifi, it’ll show that i have ~9 hours, i would check every other 15 minutes and the amount will jump to ~7 hours then to ~6 then back to ~8 then back to ~6 hours then ~7, is this suppose to be common? the percentage of how much battery i still have goes down accordingly, but the time estimations are really random. in the first 10% of depletion it’ll just jump around from 9-7 hours every 5-10 minutes.
what should i do
The estimation is not really accurate, that’s why it call estimation… From your usage ( file transferring, what kind of website you are viewing), due to the CPU usage is different all the time, the power consume is different..
So, suppose the NC10 can run 5 hours for Max run, you can assume that 20% for every hours…so, read the battery %left maybe more useful..
I had the same issues with the default battery monitor. Based on some posts I found in a search here, I installed BatteryBar-
So far, it seems to be a lot less jumpy, but I’ve only been running it a day. Apparently, the key thing is it keeps an ongoing log and can become better at estimating over time. We shall see! Right now, it’s telling me 6-7 hours on a charge doing light surfing with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth On.
