I have noticed since upgrading my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ180E to windows 7 the battery life is very poor. The battery was purchased off ebay and was bought to replace the original sony battery. The battery life was much better with windows vista. I remember reading about problems with the battery if upgrading to W7. However, I would rather have W7 and decrease battery life, then Vista and good battery life. Am I stuck with poor battery performance while having W7 installed or is there something I can do. Appreciate any tips

You might be using the high performance settings on your power options instead of recommended settings. How long does it reach critical drain level compared to your old battery performance? Have you considered that it may be a defective one in the first place?
