Yoga 11: Battery Time Remaining

2014-04-09, 17:05 PM

Yoga 11, Windows 8.1 RT

 

Just got my Yoga and I love it.  However, whenever the power cord is disconnected, I can't figure out how much time is remaining on my battery.  With other laptops, I just hover over the battery icon in the System Tray and it will show time remaining.  With the Yoga, it always just gives the percentage of battery remaining.  Are there any settings that I can adjust to resolve this?

 

All input is appreciated.  Thanks!

Are you talking about the Yoga 11 or Yoga 11S here?

You have to wait a little bit (few minutes) before Windows shows the remaining battery life in hours and minutes in the system tray.

Just look at the percentage left, the estimated time remaining is well just an estimate, and can change quickly depending on the workload.

It's the Yoga 11 (not the 11S), and it's running Windows 8.1 RT.

 

In all the time I've used the Yoga so far, it only shows battery percentage, not time remaining.

According to this thread it's not possible to get the time remaining:

Unless you can find a 3rd party app in the Windows Store.
