Lenovo ideapad 110 Battery and charging speed problem

Hello, I got the Lenovo ideapad 110 near a month ago, I liked it a lot, until many problems started happening and it ticked me off a lot. The main problem with this computer is the battery life.

 

I looked up what the average battery life for this computer was, it said approximately 3 to 4 hours. And it is hard to believe that because at fully charged, the battery life says it is 2 hours, but runs out quicker than that.

 

The charging speed, I was at 0% with this computer, and it said that to be at fully charged, it would have to take nearly 3 hours! What??? I researched online if there was any way to replace a more long-lasting battery or to see if there are some ways to save/improve the battery life. What I got were ways to save more battery, but none of it worked, they don't make a difference. Lowering the brightness, probably only saves 5 minutes of your battery, and that's the most I could really do (out of all the ways showed in the support page), since I never use bluetooth, etc.

 

Really need some help, would really appreciate some better ways to saving more of the battery, or if there is a way to replace the battery in this computer with a bigger life. But I strongly dislike the problems with most Lenovo computers, thinking of returning/exchaniging it. Thanks for your time.

Re: Lenovo ideapad 110 Battery and charging speed problem

Hi Zermatox,

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!

 

Have you attempted a battery gauge reset to see if it helps improve the battery life/capacity? You can do this by following the instructions below:

Go to Power Manager > Battery tab > Battery Maintenance > look for the Perform Reset button. Alternatively you can start the Lenovo Settings app > Click the battery icon on the left side tool bar > Scroll down to Battery Gauge Reset and click Perform Reset. Note that this process could take several hours so it's a good idea to start it at the end of the day.

 

Also, you can attempt the following to find out some information with your batterys health. Open Command Prompt as administrator and type in 'powercfg /batteryreport', that should give you some information such as the cycle count and full charge capacity. Please note that this will create a HTML report file that will be saved in C:\Users\NAME\battery report.html.

 

Please report back with the results.

 

Hope this helps and let us know how you get on.
