    @conankun I use battery bar to see discharge rate. Give it a go and experiment to see what lowers or increases your discharge rate.

    Lower battery life is usually a result of CPU overhead as opposed to anything physically wrong with the laptop.

    Check to see which of your programs are using CPU cycles unnecessarily - can be done in task manager. I usually go to the details tab and then sort by CPU usage.

    See if anything is pegging your CPU at a certain load.

    Hi! Currently considering purchasing the Aero 15 this week off of amazon since I want to play mid resourceful games and also video edit very easily. This or the XPS 15 (late 2017). I'm however stuck between those two or just waiting until a better release laptop that suits my interests. Is the current Aero 15 still holding up nicely? What would you people recommend?

    Thanks.

    You can change the battery profile through smart manager. click power mode, click auto at the bottom, and it will let you choose the modes under AC and DC, so you could put it at auto under DC.

    Im undervolting -135mv usng ThrottleStop, with battery monitoring on (it shows the discharge rate and temps). I'm using Liquid Metal TIM from gentech (grizzly conductonaut) and haven't opened the laptop since I received it. Ambient room temperature right now is 65F, ill post the current discharge rate and temps at the time of writing this

    currently:
    3 tabs open in chrome, power saver mode with brightness at 20%, factory restored with a bunch of bloatware removed, undervolted -135mv, ambient room temperature at 65F

    Unfortunately Gigabyte never publish BIOS changelogs so no idea... I didn't notice any change so far.

    I am attempting to do this now but having no luck with the options in BIOS. Have you found a place to enable the function keys this way? Thanks
