Notebook Battery Life
For more information on how we test notebook battery life, click here.
The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller has never been well-suited for notebook use when it comes to battery life measurements. Without DevSlp support, the Vector 180 fails to achieve the low-power states enabled by other modern SSDs out there. Mobile users should expect similar battery life from OCZ's latest as a spinning hard drive.
The performance is obviously better than a mechanical drive, though. OCZ's Vector 180 960GB appears just as fast as competing SSDs on battery power with the system buses deliberately slowed by our test platform.
