    Helly everyone!
    the battery of my new hp stream 7 works only for max. 5 hours (only surfing).
    So I made a battery report, with the following result
    DESIGN CAPACITY 35 mWh
    FULL CHARGE CAPACITY 20 mWh
    So the real capacity is only 57% of the design capacity. Is this normal or should I get a new device?
    Could you please do the same, opening cmd, type in "powercfg /batteryreport" and post your result of "FULL CHARGE CAPACITY" and "DESIGN CAPACITY" in order to compare.
    Thanks! :)

    I don't have mine handy but:

    My batt life was the same, terrible. However, after the update to 8.1 it dramatically improved. I hope yours is the same issue

    Windows 8.1 was already pre-installed. Maybe the battery life gets better after several charge -discharge cycles.

    Yes perhaps mine was too, but after a couple of days it did some major update and the battery life improved tremendously. Give it some time and I hope the same applies to you. Best of luck, BC its a fantastic device, especially for the money

    odd, I've had mine since November. As of yesterday, mine had a design capacity of 35k, charge capacity of 32k.
