    I recently purchased the Razer Blade Studio edition and want to know from other owners how long the battery is supposed to last and under what conditions?

    Is there a benchmark test that people can use to test for battery performance?

    I don’t have the Studio Edition but since it’s workstation laptop it might be not as great as other model, even it has optimus technology the auto switch function might be bugged due some software. However to track power consumption I’d suggest using HWinfo64 (sensor only) and check discharge rate. For 80watt make sure it doesn’t consume more than 15 watt and you will be good for 6 hours plus. Try closing apps that pops up on fast access or start up, they might use the battery background.

    Thanks for your response! To get the ~15watt consumption rate, do I need to use battery saver or should it normally consume at that rate if there isn't an app draining excessively? I used the tool you suggested and my PC is using 45 watts!

    Sorry, yes you should use battery saver, dimming the brightness screen and keyboard, or even most poeple Undervolting the cpu like using Intel xtu for better battery life. Avoid also any programs that use or bugged the gpu like what I know is Afterburner, MSI Software that is used for measuring gpu cpu frequency, thermal etc.
    Yes of course with normal usage it’ll around 45 watt or even more, since fancy rgb keyboard, powerful i7 cpu (intel base spec is already 45 watt, but on battery it should be throttled down to like 25 watt), 6 hours plus I meant on something light like paperwork, video consumption like YouTube etc media stream 4 hours plus, and gpu demanding tasks maybe not 2 hours.

    Thank you! I was actually turning off all these things but hadn't heard about XTU. I did do a system restore and now I'm getting a more reasonable battery life.

    Best regards!

    Nice. Yes windows update sometimes ruins also battery life on windows laptops. In this 2 years owning blade advanced it gives me from 4 to 8 hours on casual non gaming (dgpu) usage. Unlike macOS where manufactur, Apple can concentrate to maximize the efficiency on their laptops, windows with a lot manufacturers can’t do the same thing, at the end it comes to users hand how they configuring better battery life with their own unit.
