4.13 already brings considerable improvements to battery life. My times went through the roof. Though there is plenty of low hanging fruit that can be picked in your distro to optimise battery times.

Wow, you're right. I finally set up laptop-mode-tools up on this 4.13 kernel with kde plasma, even my dead battery rates over an hour now. I should get nearly 4 hours out of a full charge on the good one.

Code: Select all
$ upower --dump | grep -m3 -e cap -e energy-f
    energy-full:         7.66 Wh
    energy-full-design:  28.86 Wh
    capacity:            26.5419%
