Fujitsu Extends Notebook Battery Runtimes

At maximum energy-saving settings, Fujitsu’s LIFEBOOK E780 has a battery runtime of up to 18 hours*

Munich, April 26, 2010

Fujitsu’s new LIFEBOOK notebooks increase battery runtimes by as much as 75 percent* from the previous generation, with batteries that last through even the longest flights and workdays.

 

Fujitsu LIFEBOOKs have always had long battery runtimes; the latest generation of Li-Ion batteries and a second battery in the modular bay extend these even further. By using advanced technologies such as low tolerance, well-matched circuitry and energy-efficient LED displays throughout the portfolio, Fujitsu’s LIFEBOOKs are more efficient than ever. Fujitsu’s LIFEBOOK E780 even reaches a battery runtime of as much as 18 hours*.

 

Fujitsu’s EcoButton offers another boost to battery life, by giving users a simple way to save energy and extend battery runtime. With the touch of a button, users can switch off the most resource-hungry functions such as Firewire (IEEE 1394), card slots, optical disk drives as well as reducing display brightness. Fujitsu’s green approach is also proven by independent organizations; most of Fujitsu’s LIFEBOOKs have ENERGY STAR 5.0 and EPEAT Gold certifications.

 

Energy-efficient notebooks and batteries translate into more efficient work days for users. For notebook users who are constantly on the road, struggling to find a power socket to juice up their notebook until the next stop can be time consuming and frustrating.

 

Dieter Heiss, Senior Director Mobiles and Accessories at Fujitsu Technology Solutions, says: “Notebook users need to be able to depend on the battery life of their notebooks. We all know there’s nothing worse than trying to get work done on a long journey only to find the battery life dipping into the red low power zone just as you’re getting into your stride.”

 

* Measured with MobileMark 2007 Readers workload, all settings battery optimized and using a second battery in the modular bay.
