HP Pavilion dv2-1030ea - 12.1in Thin & Light Notebook - Battery Performance

Andy Vandervell

By Andy Vandervell



Our Score:


With just over two hours of multi-tasking productivity, the dv2 delivers poor longevity that's well below expectations for an ultra-portable.

This test simulates reading a PDF document turning the page every two minutes. Again, the dv2 puts in a poor effort, not even reaching three hours.

In the DVD segment we test a "worse case scenario" and the dv2 does poorly, not even passing an hour and a half of looping playback.
