            Do these results sound reasonable? I mean is this consumption acceptable?

                  This is for a DELL Latitude E5510:

                  In Idle state, I have measured
                  - 28.1 Watt in Ubuntu 11.04 and
                  - 15.0 Watt in Windows 7

                  Under Load, I get
                  - 50 Watt in Ubuntu 11.04 and
                  - 38 Watt in Windows 7

                  Measurement was done with a precise device when battery was fully loaded.

                    Please upgrade your kernel to 3.2.5 before complaining about battery life. If your battery life is still poor with 3.2.5+ then feel free to report it here.
