The test is wrong if you ask me, any app that you run takes a bite of your battery, an AV runs non-stop, so you cant say that it doesn't impact the battery life.

Performance: The app does not impact the battery life - False
Performance: The app does not slow down the device during normal usage- What does they mean by normal usage? What is unnormal?
Imagine how the AV is designed, it has an infinite loop, it asks n times/sec if a new app is launched, until the device or the AV is shut down.
With no AV my battery lasts ~3 days, with AV 1 day at most. AV-Tests are a scam.

Battery Preservers and Data Blockers

The AV-TEST experts used the test category of "Usability” to answer other important questions such as:

What is the security apps’ load on the device’s processor and, in turn, its battery?

Do the apps have a negative impact on the performance of the device?

Do they constantly load data in the background?

Do the programs display false positives when installing 500 clean apps?

The apps examined produced impressive results in this category of the endurance test,

with most of them achieving between 5.3 and 6.0 points.

In fact, the maximum total of 6.0 points was even awarded eleven times.

Only two apps were placed further down in the ranking with lower,

yet still successful, totals of between 4.7 and 5.0 points.
