Lenovo Yoga 900 3.5 hours per charge. What is wrong?

2016-09-14, 22:16 PM

I just purchased this laptop yesterday, and I absolutely love it. My only concern is the battery life. I have been browsing on the web for an hour and a half and I am already down to 34 percent. I realize I bought the beefed up version with a 3200x1800 display, core i7, 16GB RAM and a 512 SSD, but would that really kill the battery that much? I read in other places where people were concerned about getting 6 hours. So, is it just that low, or did I buy one with a bad battery?

 

side note--I ran the scan and it says the battery is in "good" condition

****UPDATE:

Restored my computer and reinstalled windows after reading one of the forums on here. So far so good! I am at 89% and it is fluctuating between 5 and 7 hours of estimated time remaining. A drastic improvement from yesterdays 2-3hours!!

 

BIOS and Audio update thing did not work at all. So if you're having troubles try restoring your computer. It may just be a software problem.

thanks.  I have a similar problem.  my Yoga 900 is 11 months old and has just had the motherboard swapped under warranty.  now the battery lasts about 3 hours compared to the normal 7-8 hours.  so frustrating.

For me it quite similar. It was 8-9 hours and has droped after one year to 2.5 hours. Can some explain. Is there a way (such as on Android) to see which application or notebook element is cosuming the battery. Please help!!!
