I recently bought Lenovo Ideapad 110 laptop and I got very disappointed by the battery life, it doesn't even last an hour (i use it no more than 2 weeks)
Now, this doesn't seem right to me, but I don't know what the problem could be.
I am using my laptop for long hours since I need it for my work and I'm constantly charging and discharging it because it has a non-removable battery and I don't want to keep it plugged in all the time.
Any input about where to go from here would be most welcome.
Thank you in advance

Welcome to the Community Forums.
As seen from common reviews, battery for the model is not one of the strong points, although should be able to do up to 3 Hours Video Playback. On low setting gameplay, the benchmark was able to perform 1-hour gameplay.
Check if you got the updated BIOS from the support site with updated power management and Lenovo utility.
Perform manual battery gauge calibration by using the machine until 10-20% charge then have it fully charged and restart. Change brightness to maybe 80% (this would help the battery usage) and see how long you would be able to use it for your normal use.
If you have the same problem, call in technical support for their recommendation.
Update us how things go.

Make sure you have not enabled Conservation mode in Lenovo settings. This limits battery capacity to only 55 -60% of total battery cpacity to conserve battery. Its more for people who mostly connect via AC power to stop battery from charging all the time. Supposed to extend batteries lifespan and quality. But limits battery capacity.

I've disabled the conservation option. The battery gauge still shows that I can only use my laptop for a max 2 hours.
I'm planning to upgrade the battery but I need to find out if I can do it myself or have to send the whole unit to a service center to keep the warranty.
My problem is that this laptop was given to me as a gift. It was bought in the US and I live in the Philippines.
I was hoping this model would have easy to access battery, RAM and fan. It's a solid bottom so can't just open it easily.

Does anyone else know how to properly manage the battery of the IdeaPad 110-14IBR?
I don't know if I should keep using Conservation Mode where the battery is only charged half way or deactivate it and keep the laptop completely fully charged. I'm kind of disappointed that the laptop only manages an hour on the battery that's why I decided to use the Conservation Mode feature.
If anyone else can share their experiences with the battery life of the 110-14IBR as well as tips on how to extend the battery life, that'd be great!
