Short battery life? Dropbox might be at fault




Short battery life? Dropbox might be at fault

Interesting discovery, Nico Schuele has made ​​since. It has a brand new MacBook Air, which was presented at the WWDC and comes with Intel’s Haswell processors. Up to 12 hours the device is to hold out and that makes it a device that you enjoy traveling times uses for work. Not only with Mac OS X, these are good times to achieve, with Windows it launches the new MacBook Air up to 10 hours of battery life, as I told readers. Nico has done and found that a test dropbox is probably one of the causes, when it comes to the drastic reduction of battery life.

Screenshot at 2013-07-03 16:07:14 The MacBook Air would be recharged in three hours, an incredible reduction in the duration indicated. The guilty Software: Dropbox. Thus, the unit was in operation without dropbox at 370 mA, when paused at 850 mA, finished in synchronized state at 930 mA and during the synchronization process at 1450 mA rich. Logical that Dropbox needs more power during operation, but it takes more processor time and also makes numerous accesses to the memory. But the battery life when using dropbox so goes to the basement is already frightening. Now must go find out for yourself if it is also the case with every user’s device. I myself will watch the whole time based on my MacBook Pro in the next few days. Cloudpspeicher is the last time out anyway 😉
