Asus ZenBook UX305CA Review: Thin And Light, Great Battery Life

Battery Performance

Being able to get through the work day is the goal for battery life in laptops and ultrabooks. Many can handle a good six hours of light Web browsing, but heavier workloads can seriously ramp up battery drain. We tested the Asus ZenBook UX305CA with Battery Eater Pro, which chews through laptop batteries, and our own Web browsing test, in which we refresh a webpage until the battery is depleted.

The ZenBook UX305CA has excellent battery life. In fact, it took top honors in the Battery Eater pro test by hanging in there for 4 hours and 26 minutes. On top of that, the system lasted a whopping 10 hours and 9 minutes in our Web browsing test.

As for noise, the Asus UX305CA is virtually silent. Aside from the keyboard vibrating when we typed, we couldn’t hear the ultrabook at all because the CPU is passively cooled and there are no moving internals.
