Power is an important factor

Devices that are designed to be used while out-and-about, such as tablets or laptops, need to have a strong battery in order to ensure that they can last through a work day. This is because an outlet for charging isn't always nearby, so you may go several hours at a time without available power sources.

On average, most portable devices last anywhere between 4-7 hours depending on the activities being performed on the machine, size of the battery, and some other factors. One of LG's newest devices, the LG gram 14 2-in-1, sports above-average results. On a full charge, it lasts between eight and nine hours, which is a great result compared to competitors thanks to its beefy 72 Wh battery. However, compared to the LG gram 17's 10-12 hour range, we were hoping to see even bigger numbers. Even so, the battery life of the LG 14 2-in-1 is admirable, and more than enough to get you through the day.

Why get an LG gram 14 2-in-1?

Aside from having great overall battery life, there's plenty of other reasons to pick up an LG gram 14 2-in-1. Chief among them is its extraordinarily low weight, coming in at just 2.53 pounds (1.15 kg). This makes it an excellent device for people on-the-go, since it adds practically nothing to your bag's carrying weight. As you'd expect with a laptop/tablet hybrid, it also has touchscreen functionality as well. Paired with the included pen, this provides an excellent alternative to typing for note taking, and it gives artists a way to draw on the device, too. Additionally, the 14-inch display has excellent contrast and astounding sRGB color reproduction.

When it comes to resilience and reliability, the LG gram 14 2-in-1 won't let you down either. Despite its low weight, the device has surprisingly made it through MIL-STD 810G testing, ensuring that it's more durable than it looks. Also, it's equipped with an Intel Core i7-8565U processor and 16GB of RAM, so it can handle most tasks that you throw at it without issue.

Overall, the LG gram 14 2-in-1 is simply a great device, even if it has only slightly above-average battery life.
