I have a dell with linux mint. I just updated to the newest version and on full charge I have 10 minutes before the battery dies. It then says 4-11 hours for full charge. terminal says battery is at 100% only a ear old and hardly ever off of charger. Any ideas?

G'day @fx9 - no idea myself but will move this to Hardware where it might gain more attention.

Hello @fx9,

It is somewhat dependent on the battery's health. Even new batteries can be faulty. One of worst things you can do to a Litium-Ion battery is leave the charger connect at all times. These batteries should be allowed to discharge from time to time. Here are a couple pages that may be of help to you.


Good Luck.
