Tecra A9 Vs. Best battery life laptop?

Hi Everyone,

A colleague of mine is using a Tecra A9 with a solid state drive, and an upgraded - high capacity 8800 mAh Battery. She is currently getting approximately 4 hours of use out of the laptop, which is about what I expect. This Tecra A9 Review indicates that typical battery life (with the standard battery) is somewhere between 2 - 3 hours, even though the manufacturer claims a battery life of close to 4 hours.

Is there anything else that I can modify (hardware wise) that will allow this laptop to run for longer?

If not I am looking at purchasing a new laptop for my colleague and this one will need to have close to 8 hours of constant battery use. If anybody has any recommendations on a suitable laptop can you please let me know?

Kind Regards,

Davo

The only thing you really can do is tweek the screen settings and maybe you and declock the processor while on battery your best best would be to buy a new laptop.

if you upgrade to 9 cell looks like you can get 12 hrs and/or if you use a flat battery with that you may get 20 hrs.
