I'm wondering if someone could provide any suggestions, or confirm that this is not normal.
I got this brand new XPS literally a week ago. This is my 7th day using it, and the battery fully charged is saying I have anywhere from 3-5 hours left on it. What happened to the 12 hours?? I'm a freelance going to several different offices and that was the whole reason I got a new computer. It's pretty embarrassing having to crawl under a conference table looking for a plug all the time.
I even switched from using Chrome which is supposed to be a battery hog, turned down the screen brightness etc. I only use several browser tabs, google drive, microsoft office programs like word or excel. I haven't even installed Adobe Illustrator yet, which I fear would really kill the battery fast. Has anyone else experienced this?
