Lenovo 320S Poor battery life possible upgrades?

Hi I purchased a 320s-14ikb with a i3-7100U and 4gb ram, preformance isnt as quick as id like it so im hoping to install more ram but was wondering if the laptop had 2 slots or just the one? Also battery life ranges from 2-3 hours and is the 2 cell variant i was wondering if i could upgrade it to a 3 cell one or should i just replace it. Is 2-3 hours the norm for this laptop?

That model has just one SO-DIMM slot with the following memory specs.   8GB max / 2133MHz or 2400MHz DDR4, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket

 

A larger 3-cell 11.25V 52.5wh battery is an option, such as this one 5B10M49824  from Lenovo Encompass Parts.   

 

I could not find any 2 cell batteries in stock at Lenovo Encompass Parts.

 

Cheers,

Hello and welcome,

 

It looks like there's a single RAM socket, and the unit was available with a 2 or 3 cell battery.  I can't say from experience whether a 3-call battery can be swapped in, but perhaps this gives you a start on things.

Hi I understand you said that it only has one sodimm slot but on task manager it says it has 2 (1 being already occupied).

Thanks

 

P.S Quite frequently the cpu maxes out at 100% then fluctuates a lot between 40-100 and sometimes freezes up.
