    I'm only getting 5.5-6 hours with medium productivity work. It was only 5 hours prior to July 8th firmware - hoping it will get better but if this is the norm I may return mine this week.

    I'm not sure how to tell exactly but I'm going to guess about 35-40 %

    On my prior window laptops, I remember windows would estimate the life of your current charge with hours and minutes. Did thus go away.

    You can get a report by running this command:

    powercfg /batteryreport /output %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\battery_report.html

    How do I go about doing this?
    Do I open the Run app, and copy and paste the info above?

    From the start screen type cmd when it comes up in the results either right click and run as administrator or hit crtl+shift+enter and then alt+Y, this will open an elevated command prompt and then run the command as written....

    For the battery report you don't need to run it as administrator. At least that's my experience. I have a batch file in the desktop and just double click on it anytime I need it.
