Mini 9 battery life declining - 06-01-2010, 03:06 AM
So ive had my mini 9 over a year now. My original hard drive died, was replaced over a month ago with a new one and installed the most recent version of ubuntu netbook remix. I only have wifi on, lowest screen brightness and I am lucky to just get around 2 hours. Is this normal for a 3 cell, 24.4 wh battery? Prior to the new hard drive and using ubuntu 8.04 i got easily 2.5 + hours. Also right now sometimes the battery gets hot, even when its charged enough, the red light starts flashing for a few seconds suddenly. Here's a youtube video that someone else had the same issue. So are these symptoms to a failing battery or something else? Thanks
