Averatec 4200

While Averatec and the tests show that it has a long battery life, I've never gotten more than an hour of use even when using max battery. Until this week Averatec's support personnel refused to acknowledge that there might be a problem (5 months). Now the battery won't recharge to more than 73% even when left plugged in to recharge overnight. Despite this, I have been fairly satisfied with the product otherwise.

Sounds like a bad battery if it won't even charge fully. And that runtime is absolutely terrible. Ours managed 3x longer. Request a replacement battery under warranty.

You need to get the battery replaced asap, as most manufacturers only have 3 months warranty on the battery.

Good luck getting Averatec to respond to problems. (See my post about the deceptive advertising of the included XP Pro, a proprietary version which does not function as I need it to.) If anyone has good luck getting them to fix the problems, I hope to hear about it.
