Battery Life Testing

The lack of a replaceable or upgradable battery on the ATIV Book 6 makes its battery life all the more important. Testing battery performance is always a little tricky. The way you use the notebook is bound to affect its battery life, but you can get a good idea as to how the machine compares to some rivals in our results below.

Battery Life Testing

The ATIV Book 6’s performance here was fairly impressive, though under load the machine can chew through a battery charge quickly. Remember, this is no petite machine. 

The battery is rated for 4.7 hours, and our test came in just shy of that. However, if you take it a bit easier (no gaming, low screen brightness, etc.), you could definitely squeeze much more time out of it. That's middle-of-the-road in today's laptop market, but it's markedly superior to mainstream 15" laptops that were shipping just 1-2 years ago. So, at least we're seeing meaningful progress in the battery life department.
