Intel Haswell CPU promises 10-day battery life

Laptops based on Intel Haswell CPUs will make trips to the charger a weekly or fortnightly affair.

I hate to be a pessimist but if haswell features 10 day battery life I will donate £100 to charity, and I never donate.

My bet is slightly more efficient CPU tied to a MASSIVE laptop sized battery in order to get that 10 days. Seriously, car battery sized it'll be.

I really hope this is true. Regardless if it actually hits 10 days or not, it'll still a dramatic improvement over current standards. Too bad it's not out until 2013.

More to the point will they actually manage to include overcharge protection so that when you are plugged in to the mains that you are not constantly charging the battery and reducing it's lifespan.

Intel always blow hot air when AMD is about to get some press, still don't like them for their anticompetitive practices.

Let's not get too excited now. ‘more than a ten-days, always-connected standby capability on a single charge.’ A laptop's not much good stuck in standby all day. And they can only reduce the power consumption on the cpu. I believe displays are proportionally the biggest power drain in a laptop?
Now to wait for acceptable colour e-ink to make its appearance.

I'd like to see a smartphone last a weekend first

What's "connected Standby"? Connected to what?

I don't believe this is for Intel to meddle with, this should be down to the laptop manufacture not the chip maker

Ok noted

This should be really interesting, I do find it hard to believe that a laptop can last for 10 days but then I would consider myself quite a heavy user.

That's what I'm interested in. MMy laptop is plugged into the mains 99% of the time, so imporoved battery life doesn't interest me that much. But not having the battery die on me does.

I'm not that impressed, but that's because it's a rather difficult text, all in all.
A lot is left unsaid.
Quote:
‘This means that we’ll be able to enable all-day usage and more than a ten-days, always-connected standby capability on a single charge.’
What does he mean...all-day use, OR ten day standby?
Ten days of all day use AND standby in between?

Just to emphasize: current netbooks give you ~6-8 hours of use (which could be considered all-day in a work environment) OR a week in standby (lowest energy saving mode).

Or this interpretation of the former:
Quote:
That should mean that in typical use – a bit of work and a bit of web-browsing, and sleeping the laptop in between use – will result in only having to hunt out the power brick every week or two.
So...20-30 mins of excel, some email reading, 2x 10 mins wikipedia, about an hour to hour and a half a day with standby in between.
Again, this is what a current netbook will do with three days between charges.

Hey Ipad-folks, how long does your battery last when using it for some light browsing about an hour a day?

nice idea, doubt it will happen,

what would be nice to see though is some inbuilt remote charging circuits and low cost remote charging pads, so that you can position the pads around the house in convienent places, attach it under a table top so that when you put the laptop on the table is will charge, have one on your bed side table, on a worktop in the kitchen etc

this added in with the jelly batteries http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-14852073 could make interesting solutions
