Re: Lenovo Yoga 500 Battery Life

2016-05-12, 23:49 PM

To chime in, I've got a

 

  • Yoga 500-14ISK
  • (no dGPU, just the Intel HD520 chip)
  • Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD
  • 8GB RAM
  • i5-6200U
  • 45Wh battery I think 
  • At idle 3% CPU @ 0,94GHz say

On power saver, Wi-Fi on, screen brightness 75%+ and low keyboard brightness with normal word processing and browsing the net I've recently been managing to get somewhere around 4.5 - 5hrs but never really more than that. Using it on Balanced normally will only get me 3-4.5hrs.

To keep track of your battery life, I let Windows generate a battery report? It shows you how fast the battery drains and the predicted longevity, it might be useful to you. To get the report:

Open a command prompt and type: "powercfg /batteryreport" and you should get a "battery-report.html" saved to your user folder. Hope it's useful.

Can you run this notebook with the ac adapter straight when the internal battery is removed?

Yes, you can. I tried this when I had battery/board issues with the laptop and it does boot with the internal battery disconnected from the board.
