How is battery life in the Acer Swift 5?

Best answer: The battery life of the Acer Swift 5 is good, offering about eight hours of battery on a full charge.Get it from Newegg: Acer Swift 5 (From $900 at Newegg)

What are the specifics about the battery life?

The latest variant of the Acer Swift 5 can achieve an average of eight hours of battery life, assuming you're performing general work tasks and aren't keeping the screen super bright. If you do choose to do either or both of those things, you can expect the battery to last a little shorter than that.

This is a good result, and it means that most folks who use the laptop will have no problem using it all day long without needing to charge. However, if you do find yourself needing to recharge the device, it won't take very long. In fact, during our tests of the laptop's fast charge capability, we found that you could get five full hours of battery life from just half-an-hour of charging.

Aside from the satisfactory battery life, there are lots of other reasons to get an Acer Swift 5. Leveraging up to an Intel 10th Gen i7-1065G7 in processor power, 8GB of RAM, and Intel Iris Plus graphics, it's a capable laptop that can handle any work task you throw at it, and can even handle some light gaming too. Also, the 14-inch HD display looks great, and the device also comes with a Thunderbolt 3 port and two USB-A ports (one of which is USB 3.1).

When it comes to the physical design of the device, the Acer Swift 5 doesn't disappoint either. Coming in at 0.59 inches of thickness, two pounds of weight, and featuring razor-thin bezels, it's a laptop that's thin and light enough to be carried anywhere, in any type of bag or case, without giving you any trouble at all.
