I'm happy to report on my C940 14 4K display battery life. 7 hours is lovely for a 4K screen and I love the screen so very much.

I have similar issues with my Yoga C930 which I got a few days after the Yoga C940 was released. Overall Lenovo's recent Yoga900 sries have terrrible battery lives which partially stems from  the firmware Lenovo installs on the computer and/or Lenovo vanatge. The advertised "battery life" is deceptive and does not reflect actual noormal use but rather throttled back functions, off wifi and with significantly reduced screen brightness. Lenovo support and escalation is terrible overall I find that the quality of Lenovo's product and lack of support completely unsatisfactory.

Just for reference, the battery report estimates 9.5h on a FHD with medium/light usage, with all the radios on. For really light usage (reading books) I expect around >>12h with the radios on.

That was the reason to buy FHD version and it was a good choice. You can not notice the difference when watching videos. Even for editing photos, it is usable. And for 9,5 hours watching FHD video is definitely worth it. Core i7, 1TB SSD, 16GB RAM, FHD. 50 pct brightness, wifi and Bluetooth on, video playing from memory.

Anyone with the FHD model can confirm if it still takes over 3 hours to max charge your c940? My UHD 14' takes literally just that unless you turn off the screen (which I find completely dumb for a flagship $2k device for not to have normal fast charging). Interested in hearing from FHD models to see if it's actually worth it and I might return this UHD model for the FHD model if that's fixed there.

I have had a bit shorter time with screen on (I think some 2,5 hours), which make sense, as the battery consuption is lower. Anyway, the battery and the charger are the same.
