My acer laptop battery is only lasting 50 mins, on mid/low screen brightness, and the laptop is only 4 months old.
I called acer and the monkey on the phone said that "50 minutes is within the acceptable lifespan for a used battery" so they wont do anything.
On the acer website it mentions 'up to 3hrs battery life'. I told him its 4 months old and giving 50 mins - he said its classed as used, so that doesnt apply!!!!!!! Of course, any battery is used as soon as its plugged in.
I got so pissed off i hung up.
Does anyone know where I stand with this? Im pretty sure im entitled to a replacement, but the idiot at Acer said they could only book it in as a chargeable repair.
Anyone had any similar problems with their laptop batteries, and how did it pan out?
