Update on LE1700 Tablet PC battery issues

I’ve been in communication with Motion Computing regarding the LE1700 battery issues I’ve been reporting on.

Motion believes that the experiences I’ve been having with battery times are indeed pre-production issues. For example, there were several production-level tuning tweaks / adjustments in the BIOS and operating system that were not implemented in the units I received. Once those adjustments are made to production units, Motion believes that battery levels will be up to par with what specs quote


I’m going to send my units back to Motion so they can take a look, and hopefully I’ll get some production level units to run further tests on.
