Dear aufgeladen3, 

Dell XPS 17 battery run times are rather moderate despite the strong 9 cell battery (90Wh). The machine is drained after only about an hour when the laptop is faced with high load. If you want to get a good battery life for Dell XPS 17, then you need to reduce the brightness through setting and select the energy saving options and then you can test ran for almost five hours.
