This is ONLY PRELIMINARY, but, BUT I MAY have figured out the poor battery life on my CF-31.

Here are some of the steps I took:
1) I went into the Sprint View software and DISABLED the GPS on the GOBI 2000 card.
2) I went into the BIOS and ENABLED the OEM, built-in GPS that came with the machine (Similar to the CF-30 OEM GPS, which NEVER caused poor battery life on the CF-30) so that I have GPS ready to go
2) I also disabled the WWAN (Sprint) through the wireless switch utility.
3) WIFI is ENABLED and connected and I'm on the website now from my home.
4) From an initial standpoint I have 1hr 25 min battery life at 16% with screen brightness as one notch below full blast (500 nits).

I want to test this tomorrow while I'm at work with this EXACT setup as highlighted above with a full charge (31 cycles at this point) to see where we're at!

~Rob - checking out tonight, will check back in tomorrow :salute: ~

That's odd, I'm getting 11 hours out of my battery.

WHAT!?!? HOW!?!? Do you have a 2.4 model or a 2.53 model?

You do realize that you are the FIRST person that claims to get 11 hours. EVERYONE else (mostly 2.53 models) can't get more than 5 or 6 hours...

Thanks

Excuse my ignorance, tell me how to figure out if it's a 2.53 or a 2.4.

I believe the 2.4 is the CF-31ATA's and the 2.53 are the CF-31ATN's.

Right click, my computer, properties.

Go in the BIOS (F2 at bootup)

Go to the CONFIG site and punch your full model number in...

Lets see here.... How many other ways?? :P
