Battery not holding charge, short battery life, or does not last according to specification.

Toshiba uses a worldwide accepted benchmark program called (Mobile mark®) to determine battery life for each notebook model. Battery life is tested based on benchmark productivity suite tests which run on normal battery saving profile.

Battery life will vary depending on:

• Usage

• Settings

• Age

Battery life will also depend on what type of applications you are using. For example, if you are using the optical drive to play a DVD movie at full screen brightness and speakers set to maximum volume, your battery life will be dramatically reduced than when you are using a word processor document at half the screen brightness.
