Just received my Y530 and already having low battery issues

As the subject says, I just received my Y530 on last Thursday and its battery is EXTREMELY low. Although it is the GTX 1060 model, I've currently got it at one tick above minimum brightness with power saving mode on while doing literally nothing and the batter barely lasts above 2 hours. I've read people with this model reporting an average of 4 hours while doing basic tasks like web browsing so I'm curious why mine is so low in comparison. 


Definitely disappointed in the product overall and this was pretty much the final straw for me

Re: Just received my Y530 and already having low battery issues

Hi, For this type of issue. Charge- discharge battery few times. And check power management settings in windows control panel, set up balanced and energy saving mode for when not plugged-in and high performance for when plugged in And check background task running while on battery as well. Thanks
