With linux 5.3.1-arch1-1-ARCH and linux-zen 5.3.1 the laptop battery lasts for (approx.) half of the time than wit linux-lts 4.19.76-1-lts.
Some rough measures taken with the acpi command:

- linux-lts 4.19.76-1-lts: Battery 0: Discharging, 96%, 06:20:55 remaining
- linux 5.3.1-arch1-1-ARCH: Battery 0: Discharging, 95%, 03:31:04 remaining
- linux-zen 5.3.1: Battery 0: Discharging, 96%, 03:38:08 remaining

All measures have been taken when the laptop had settled down after booting and in the same load conditions.
This task depends upon
