Lenovo G50-80 battery backup problem in windows 10 pro

Hi all,

I have lenovo G50-80 laptop, bought 1 year back. Previously i used windows 8.1 and the laptop worked pretty good. It gave around 3:30 to 4 hrs battery backup. Recently I install windows 10 pro. From that time the battery is standing for less than 2 hrs. Just to make sure again I installed windows 8.1 and the battery is giving 3:30 to 4 hrs. I want to use windows 10 but with decent battery backup. I read some blogs about this issue but i couldn't get rid of this problem. Please reply your suggestion.

Hi rajsekhar501  , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


As you have isolated battery performance on both operating system proves that the issue is OS dependent.

I came across similar blog that would explain such for Windows 10 as they have also done testing themselves.

Windows 10 Battery Life Is Better—Except When It's Worse . 

Would the battery also drain fast when using it on safe mode?


Check with updated BIOS , chipset and Lenovo Setting apps and other power manager

Investigate on applications that may cause the drain. 


Hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.
