CHUWI Herobook is the recently released model with the slightly underpowered Intel X5-E8000 quad-core processor, but the rest of the specs is actually pretty solid, like the big 38Wh battery. And today we have for you some official endurance testing of this battery by the CHUWI engineers, both in the five-hour battery test and the classical benchmark PCMark 8 test. So let’s see how is the new laptop doing in terms of endurance.
First let’s take a look at the five-hour battery test, divided into several distinctive categories. First they took half an hour for the initial download/installation phase and then followed with 1 hour for video, 1 hour for browsing websites, 1 hour for music and 1.5 hour for office work to simulate the normal daily usage. All tests done with the wireless connection on, 75% brightness of the display and 50% volume. The power consumption of each stage is as follows :
According to the test results the CHUWI Herobook can be expected to provide about 8 hours of movie playback, 12.5 hours of music playback or 8 hours of solid office work.
And after five hours of the full test the battery still retained 38% of the charge so the endurance result seems pretty solid for such a cheap laptop.
Then they moved on to the PCMark 8 testing, which focuses on realistic use patterns including documents editing, web browsing or video chat to calculate the total expected battery life. And the demanding PCMark 8 benchmarks returned the result of 6 hours and 40 minutes of the projected endurance, which is not bad either.
CHUWI Herobook has of course some other redeeming qualities then the 38Wh battery, like 14,1-inch anti-glare FullHD display, 4 GB RAM + 64 GB eMMC memory plus an independent M.2 SSD slot, oversized touchpad, good set of connectors and much more. So check it out on the official website to know more.
