Overnight I ran battery life tests on the Samsung Q1 SSD to compare the battery life of a device without a hard with Kevin’s Q1 with a hard drive. I used Battery Eater to run the test and here are the results (click to enlarge):
Bottom line – worst case scenario (all radios on) 2 hours exactly. This compares with Kevin’s run time of 1 hour 44 minutes, a 15% increase. This is not bad and correlates with the 3 hours I am regularly getting in real use.
