A few weeks ago I got the Framework 13 DIY Edition with the Ryzen 7640u chip. Running 64GB ram and a 4TB nvme SSD on Windows 11.
I’m wondering if anyone has tips for improving battery life. Currently, I run battery saver mode, 20-30% brightness, only use FireFox and Outlook, and I cannot seem to get more than 4-4.5 hours of battery life. When I look up forum posts/reviews of this model, many claim to get 7, 8, 9+ hours of battery life and I’m unsure what else I should be trying here. Seems the battery should be lasting a lot longer. Any ideas?
Out of interest if you go to activity monitor or whatever it’s called on windows, it displays the average cpu mhz right? On Linux on battery after fixing my p-states to be the most aggressively battery saving, at idle most of my cores sit at 400Mhz. If I were you I would open that up on the side and then duplicate and fiddle with energy plan settings.
