    How is everyone's battery life doing on the SP4 i5?

    Side Question: is google chrome a battery hog still?

    Side answer. Google claims that Canary has solved some of the battery hog issues. Fact, not really.

    Maybe that's why my battery is draining in 3-4 hours. Just wish edge had extensions for my password manager.

    Use Firefox. Some plugins are coming for Edge, maybe as soon as next month.

    My battery life is much worse than on SP3 i3. Maybe four hours. I couldn't figure out why until I noticed that several windows processes (driver framework, service host) were eating up 50% of cpu consistently. When that happens, I have to restart to make it stop. Happens every time the WiFi crashes and resets itself.
