    Samsung NC10 Battery Life

    Been looking at this & after being reccomended the N110 in PC world (£50 more) and finding out the only difference is a bit more battery life I am going to go for the NC10.

    Before I order, is the battery as good as I have heard? I will be using if for internet browsing & office documents only. What can I expect & have you found over time it has got worse at all?

    Cheers

    Yes the battery time is really good and was one of the selling points for me. I'm using mine just now with 84% battery remaining which will last 5hrs 24 mins.

    The battery life will be dependent on a number of factors such as what OS you're using, background programs or services running, the screen brightness, what power setting mode you use and of course what you will be doing on the actual netbook itself.

    The NC10 uses a 6-cell 5200mAh battery and you should be able to see a minimum of around 4:30 hours, this is with a very high screen brightness (80-100%) and under heavy work load. With general web browsing and office work, I'd estimate around 6-7 hours.

    See ]here for an extensive battery test on the NC10 (scroll down to the bottom for a summary chart), similarly there's a chart ]here.

    You can also buy the 9-cell battery if you desire, which according to ]this test, should yield 50% longer battery life.

    I think the battery is supposed to be about 5-6 hours with wifi on, about in line with most 6-cell netbooks and not as good as the Asus eee 1000HE. You won't get an exact figure as it depends on what you've got turned on and plugged in as well as the brightness of the screen.

    EDIT: Battery capacity will get worse over time, that's just the nature of high capacity batteries. I don't know how good the quality of the NC10's battery is though.
