Hello,

I have a notebook HP.

Someone told me that when you use wireless on a notebook running on the battery it will quickly drain the batteries power.

I am just wondering why does the battery drain quickly when using the wireless Internet?

Many thanks,

The battery will drain faster if (1) it is over two years old; (2) you don't use power save mode, and (3) you have connected too may external devices to your laptop.

Becsaue wireless internet is a radio transmitter and all radio transmitters need power, lots of it.
