Lenovo 530 Yoga, battery drains very fast

2019-03-11, 14:40 PM

I bought a Lenovo 530 Yoga a week ago and since I statred using it I realize the battery drains so fast when its fully charged after a while u can see in the battery bar that its dropping from 7 hrs to 5 hrs and the porcentage also dropping. The battery life does not even last 2 hours and it supoused to last more o close to 10 hrs according with the manual.

I even configurate it to battery setting to have a best battery life

What should i do?

Hi Joselo17,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Battery usage may depend on the resources using it. The greater demand and process would take more energy so you may want to check if same goes with simple computig task (as compared to heavy use with video edit and gaming). Here are also other ways to save battery like decreasing lcd brightness to 70-80%.

On a similar discussion here, updating the BIOS from the support site helps as other even tried using higher wattage adapter for their machine. 

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Hi there, I have bought a Lenovo Yoga as above and the battery drains ridiculously fast. It's not even been a year and within a matter of an hour the battery drains from 94% to 0!! Just turning on the machine drains 6% minimum of the battery. I have tried taking it back to the place where I bought it from but they have said there's nothing they can do. The machine was bought in 2018 and so it's only been 2 years so far. I love Lenovos but this has really put me off.

Exact same issue

 

Bought this in April 2019 and by December 2019 Battery life dropped to less than 1 hour. Anyone got any explanation or solution yet?

Exactly the same problem. Since the last BIOS update (7QCN43WW) my battery last 2 hours instead of 4-5 h.

Exactly the same problem I face with a Lenovo Yoga 530-14IKB after 1 year and a half since I bought the laptop. Moreover, in Lenovo Vantage it appears to me that the battery has degraded and needs to be replaced

It doesn't seem normal for a battery to degrade in less than 2 years

I mention that I have the latest version of BIOS

Same. Bought about two years ago and Lenovo vantage claims the battery needs to be replaced. Laptop lasts about 4 hours.
