Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
ASUS Eee PC 701 suffers battery drain  - ASUS Eee PC 701 suffers battery drain

It is probably a known problem and so far, there seems to be no way to fix it. The problem is that the battery is drained at a rate of about 10% per day even when the unit is completely switched off. If you do a full charge and leave the battery intact, it will auto drain by itself at the rate of 10% per day with no USB or SD card inserted. That also means that the battery will be totally discharged after the 9th day if not in use. The only way to prevent this is to physically remove the battery. So far, users of Eee PC 900 and Eee PC 701 experience the same issues. This affected the models centred around the Moblie Celeron 900 processor. It is not difficult to check whether you are affected by this problem. Simply finish off your battery and do a full charge in the morning. Once it is fully charged, leave the battery in the unit for 2 nights. On the third day, power up your XP and see if the battery level is now at 80%. Do the same with a full charge and remove the battery for 2-3 days. Insert it back and see if you still get the 100%. If you experience the same as described, you are probably facing the issues of most 701 and 900 series. So far, all the new BIOS couldn't resolve the problem, thus it could be a hardware issue. There were also discussions about turning off the USB option in BIOS thus disabling the drain from unused USB slots on the Eee PC 900 (even when no devices are plugged in).
