The notebook’s battery life was measured with Battery Eater Pro 2.60. The test was performed at the maximum screen brightness in the following modes:
- Classical – the system bears the maximum and evenly distributed load
- Reader’s test (the pages are scrolled through each 15 seconds)
- DVD mode (the DVD movie was launched in Battery Eater’s Idle test mode)
The ASUS A3500Vc03 is better in this test than the ASUS A6Q00K because its components require less power in total. 198 minutes in Reader’s mode looks quite impressive for the rather powerful configuration.
And here are the battery discharged diagrams for the different operation modes:
