Turn and move the Which? unleashes some interesting battery test – the last one we posted here on the site showed that the iPhones 7/7 Plus continue to fall short. Now, the vehicle has decided to test those of some of the main notebooks on the market.
What the Which? it basically does is surfing the internet using a Wi-Fi connection and watching movies until the notebook battery runs out completely. Each notebook is tested at least 3 times. In total, they tested 8 notebooks from Acer, 3 from Apple, 8 from ASUS, 10 from Dell, 12 from HP, 20 from Lenovo and 6 from Toshiba.
The result, you can see below:
At least in notebooks, Apple is doing well. Among the five manufacturers evaluated, it was the only one that not only fulfilled its promise; delivered more than promised!
See some examples of discrepancies between what was promised and what Which? actually succeeded:
Lenovo Yoga 510
- Promised battery: 5 hours
- Test of Which?: 2 hours and 7 minutes
Apple MacBook Pro 13 ″
- Promised battery: 10 hours
- Test of Which?: 12 hours
HP Pavilion 14-al115na
- Promised battery: 9 hours
- Test of Which?: 4 hours and 25 minutes
Dell Inspiron 15 5000
- Promised battery: 7 hours
- Test of Which?: 3 hours and 58 minutes
- Promised battery: 6 hours
- Test of Which?: 2 hours and 56 minutes
As we can see, in some cases the battery lasts 50% less than promised. ?
It never hurts to remember that the new MacBooks Pro had its bit of controversy when they failed the Consumer Reports battery tests – something that was later “clarified and corrected”. Still, it’s amazing to see that only Apple delivers what it promises in relatively simple tests (browsing the Internet and playing videos).
May the Apple serve, once again, as a reference for competitors.
