Your battery is not draining evenly. In the first hour it drained 19%. But, in the next 3 hours it drained 81% - 24% =57% . If we take the average over the last 3 hours we get: 1.57^(1/3) =1.1622 - 1 x 100=16.22%

So:0.0001 =o.1622^n

n =Log(0.0001 / Log(0.1622)

n = ~ 5 hours more to drain completely.

So, it lasted: 4 + 5 = 9 hours.
