ideapad 320 Battery life, less than 2 hours

Less than two weeks old and one week since opening/removing from box.

Battery life from full to Screen dimming is less than 2hours(1:40 today).

After one online support chat(removing and reinstalling some battery app), no noticable difference is battery performance.

Usage - no video or multiple apps simultaneously operating. Only reading, browsing/net surfing and document downloading

The actual battery life of your laptop depends on the actual settings and features active in your laptop. To extend the battery life your your laptop, you may check these article https://lnv.gy/2vVAQtb and https://lnv.gy/2vTnFsT. Reggie_Lenovo

Re: ideapad 320 Battery life, less than 2 hours

Followed ALL or your recommendations. I completed another test today. Increased battery time(full charge to Screen dimming) to 1:50. In 26 years of buying and owning laptops, this is the weakest battery I've run into. I'm hoping Lenovo has a solution because I like the rest of this laptop so far.

Tech support is sending a NEW battery(3 biz days). Does anyone think this will solve the issue?

If the battery was considered defective, then that should solve it. Keep us posted on how it goes. -Mario_Lenovo

Re: ideapad 320 Battery life, less than 2 hours

Met the Lenovo Tech in town and he removed and reinstalled new new battery. It's very lightweight and thin. I have made sure Bluetooth is off and have NOT watched ANY videos or play games. I have the screen dimmed(easy on the eyeballs!). I surf, read and download work related PDFs. I get two(2) hours before the screen dimming(10%) feature kicks in. This IS a two hour battery, no if ands or buts!

Re: ideapad 320 Battery life, less than 2 hours

My Lenovo Ideapad 320s has a short battery life. I fully charged it and I didn't used it for days. But when I turned it on after couple of days, the baterry's drained. Why is it like that? I didn't used it. It's off but still, the battery drained. It's a waste of money! 

 

You should fix it!

Same here. My brand new ideapad 330 shows 100% battery and 2.10min life. But I can  use it 1.40. This is pathetic!

Re: ideapad 320 Battery life, less than 2 hours

You ought to see the battery life on a 17IKB Ideapad 330!

50 bl**dy minutes!!!!

I actually sent it to the techs and they returned it to me with ”no defection present” mention. From the 6 hours mentioned on the Characteristics page, the guys told me (by phone) that it lasts up to two (2) hours... ON STANDBY! As if anyone buys a laptop to keep it on standby, LOL! And on paper, when returned, the 50 minutes (real) transformed in 2 1/2 hours of ”standby use”.

I would really want to know how can one use a laptop on standby!

I believe I will post a scathing review and try to return it, be it as good as it is. But 50 minutes of playing Minecraft (my 8-years old son) at 70% brightness) does not really honour a XXI-th century laptop. Woman Sad
