i have a quick question since i cant find the anwser, how is it with the battery duration with this notebook? Everywhere it says up to 7.5 hours, but how should i use it to get that long usage? At 100% it shows me it will stay for 3 hours and so it did as i tested today. Another question, is there possibly a way to charge this notebook from powerbank since it hasnt got USB type C? Like with some adapter or something. Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
From the Lenovo site, shows "8.5 hours of battery life". You may have also read other members post with having ~3-4 hours normal usage like here and here but this model do have fast charging technology to balance some cons.
As there are several factors to consider, possible ways to reach the duration is to lessen resources that tolls on power such as display brightness, network activities included also in the background, applications specially those that would always require synching like cloud storage and user accounts and all others.
An example to demonstrate is here from an independent review:
A discussion here with yoga 700 external power bank may be an option with 20v power delivery with an ac port. There is no claim for compatibility but it would be something that you can check out.
I hope this helps answer your query.
