    Hello rushy,

    May you double check if you have update the latest BIOS?

    Also, since your device is new, there might be Windows update running in the background,

    please kindly check and wait until all updates are complete.

    Let me know if it gets better.

    You may also check in task manager to see if there is specific program or function that is using more power than you expected.

    Thank you.

  • Ive had it for nearly 2 weeks so its done some updates and also a bois update and still its the same between 6-7 hours
