Fuduntu 2013.1 battery life - What gives?

Filed under
Linux

Fuduntu is a pretty awesome distribution. Rarely do I give a perfect ten to one, and so far, only Linux Mint managed that accolade. But then recently, I tested the last edition of Fuduntu, and it turned out to be magnificent. So much, in fact, that I had it committed in my production setup, where it failed just short of the 10/10 mark, but still exhibited fairly great results.

I showed you the Nvidia graphics card and Broadcom network drivers setup, Steam, Netflix, and a few more tricks besides. What I did not do is give any regard to the claimed battery life improvements. Fuduntu is supposed to be ultra-optimized for laptops and netbooks, and should offer you some 40% more battery juice than its counterparts.

I checked.
