Hello Lenomatt, nice to have you here!

 

About your concern, a laptop's battery life depends on how it was the device itself was used or through its usage.

 

Rechargeable batteries wear out with time and usage. For the typical user, noticeable reduction in run time generally will occur after 12 to 18 months. For a power user, reduction in run time may be experienced prior to 12 months. 

 

There are some easy steps on how to extend your Legion Y530 laptop's battery life, here are some of them:

 

  • Reduce LCD brightness level. The display is one of the largest users of battery power. Save big on battery life by turning the brightness level down to the lowest comfortable level
  • Unplug unneeded devices. To save battery life, remove other devices like phones or headphones that are charging. When not using the laptop, but a power source is needed, charge other devices from the notebook as long as it is powered on and unlocked
  • Turn off Bluetooth. If not using this feature, disable the feature to avoid draining the laptop battery
  • Shut down or hibernate the laptop rather than using standby, if there are no plans to use the laptop for a while. Standby continues to drain energy to keep the laptop ready to go when the cover is opened
  • Use the power management settings on the computer. In Windows, click Power Options under Control Panel. For systems preloaded with Energy Management, OneKey Optimizer or Lenovo settings (preloaded or downloaded from Windows store), it is strongly recommended to select Optimize for Battery Lifespan mode or Conservation Mode and keep the AC adapter connected all the time. This mode will enable the battery to be fully charged to 80% or 60% of its design capacity

Those steps can be also found on this link.

 

Hope this helps you out and answers your concern. 

 

Thanks!

No, no, - I asked about time how long you can work since full to empty it means - 1h / 2h so on...

Hello again Lenomatt!


Thanks for the response!

 

Upon checking on your device's complete specifications and based on MobileMark test, battery will last up to 9.5 hrs.

 

Just to set your expectations, this still depends on how the laptop is used.

 

It is also stated in there that battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, & other factors as seen on screenshot below.

 

 

 

Hope this clears out your concerns and helps you out as well.

 

Thanks!

I bought my lap 1 month ago. My battery at medium usage enough on 2,5h - Medium usage means - I'm watching websites, my screen is still on on max - this is all. Is it normal?

 

When I use it more, for example I scanning system and Im doing what I wrote up, my battery enough on 70 minutes !!!

No!! This is NOT defective.

You bought a performance laptop, and it is expected that performance laptops have terrible battery life (this applies to most if not all performance laptops). You can't simply compare a laptop 7 years ago since back in the day, the hardware is much weaker and consumes much less power. While the technology of batteries stays roughly the same.

 

If you believe battery life is a major problem for you, then don't buy a performance laptop, not even one with discrete graphics card. If you want to play games on your laptop nonetheless, you may consider buying an ultrabook like Thinkpad X1 Carbon with a thunderbolt 3 port, and an eGPU box. Connect the eGPU to the laptop through the thunderbolt 3 port while you want to play games.
