Why does my battery not last 14 hours?
Most mobile computers use Intel U series processors which are designed for ultra-low power consumption. The ConceptD 3 uses an Intel H series processor, designed for high performance, to better run graphic intensive applications used by creators. These applications often require maximum power to the CPU and GPU, which can quickly discharge your battery. We recommend connecting the AC adapter when performing processor and video intensive applications whenever possible.
By default, your computer’s power management settings are configured for maximum performance. You can adjust your power management settings to help improve your battery runtime using the instructions at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bpnhmh7fZIg&t=1.
