View Full Version : G46VW Battery Life

01-03-2013, 02:12 PM
I checked on Best Buy's site and there is no listing of battery life for the G46VW. Could I get the official specs, or just an idea of how long it can actually play a game on battery?

I'm not expecting to play hours on Battlefield 3 via battery, but could I play say Crusader Kings 2 for at least a couple of hours at the bar without worrying about plugging in?

I get approx ~2 hours when playing sc2, that's with max brightness and using the nvidia card. Would probably run longer if I were to use the integrated GPU instead. If you were to use it for like office use like word and excel and maybe like web browsing ~4hrs

I get ~2 hours gaming with High Performance power option, full brightness, & nVidia card. When I use it for work (excel, word, outlook) with Battery Saver power option, low-medium brightness, keyboard light off, I get ~6 hours.

i suggest you plug adapter when you play game, that will be getting high performance, if you only plug battery, just half performace.
