    If by "power section" you mean the little battery icon, mine shows both % left and time left.

    Best regards, Jim

    I think it tries to give an estimate based on what you're doing. I've noticed it doesn't always give an exact estimate, like you said, and just shows the percentage. I don't think there's anything wrong.

    But it should try to give estimate? Otherwise just knowing the percentage is basically useless...
    Does yours just always only show the percentage then?

    It shows me both the percentage and the time left, but the time is usually wrong

    You could install Battery Bar. It shows time left, % left, current power consumption and more. There is a free version and a low cost "Pro" version.

    Power consumption does not work since I upgraded the bios to F.11 and still doesn't work with bios F.12.

    Good luck, Jim

    I finally bought the FHD version and I am quite happy with it. I have tested the QHD version a few times before and it was indeed too dim. So far I am quite happy with my choice.
