I used Windows, Teams, Angular and VSCode tooling for a month and they're so bloated they killed my battery. Now it's depleting faster than charging.

    We use the same tools. My problem isn't the battery since I am using PC, my problem is 16gb of 3200mhz RAM isn't enough for this shit

    Time to replace the battery and probably the tools

    @asgs my computer is not even two months old :'( I would attempt a warranty calls but I bought it in italy and now I'm in the UK (maybe it's because of that though :s)

    @electrineer bloated software can totally screw up batteries. I worked for apple...

    People use batteries in laptops these days?

    @ostream overheating and over/undercharging can kill batteries but that's not controlled by userspace applications.

    I use mostly the same with an hp zbook but have not experienced battery problems despite using it for over a year.

    And I also use visual studio and a few more.

    Either a faulty battery or charging circuit, or the firmware doesn't prevent overcharge or overtemperature. You should be able to run any power virus without it killing your battery in two months.

    @C0D4 they serve as great makeshift incendiary grenades.

    @theKarlisK stabbed a large inflated lithium ion battery with a long iron pole once, it was spoilt and going to be thrown anyway and I was curious

    Can confirm what you said is true

    @electrineer it wouldn't charge anymore, at least the battery charging apparatus we had refused to charge it. So no idea.
