I have a Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 laptop, with

  • Intel Core i5 3210m
  • AMD Radeon HD 7670 graphics
  • SSD drive

I remember from the times I still dual booted Windows 7 that the battery life sometimes exceeded 3 hours. Under Freya, the battery lasts up to 1h 50m.

What could I do to improve my elementary OS battery life?

  • When did you dual boot Windows 7. Batteries degrade over-time
