The white papers for MobileMark are available on Bapco's website should you want to read up on how this benchmark works. In the graph above, higher scores equate to better performance.
The Z80K gave us just a little over 2 hours of battery life, which was about 30 minutes less than we expected. Though, this type of short battery life is pretty consistent with other DTRs. We should note that the Z80K doesn't have an extended battery pack option. Charging time for the Z80K was just shy of 3 hours to go from 0% to 100%.
