|[PLUG] Acer Chromebook 14: 18% battery loss in a year?|
Xfce Power Manager clued me in that the fully-charged level is now 36.4 watt-hours versus the 44.7 watt-hours when it was new.
Granted, I've been using this rig to develop standalone apps (mobile productivity-ware and 3-D games) and stream media, but suddenly, I have a feeling I'd pushed the whole system harder than what it was meant for.
The upshot: Even with an N3160 CPU (Braswell System-on-a-Chip), I don't think the Acer CB3-431 (board id EDGAR) makes it for a long-term, high-intensity (Android Studio and Unity3D) development rig.
On the upside, the keyboard and casing are intact after a year of use - that HP Stream 14 I had in 2018 bombed out in those departments.
