Yoga 910 battery Life - Calibration

2017-02-27, 11:06 AM

Hello! So I just bought a new Yoga 910, which i very much love except for  the battery life.

It takes more than 4 hours to charge and discharges in less than 3 hours with continuous use (i'm using the balanced power option).

This is much less time than all the benchmarks posted online (which say 8 to 10 hours). I think it might be a calibtration issue, which would probably solve the slow charge also.

I can't seem to figure out this calibration as there's no onekey optimizer anymore.

 

any help?

Hello Nunodefaria

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Try switching to the power saving option, this should considerably extend the battery life of your unit.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

The OP asked how to calibrate it, not how to put it in PSM. Power saving mode decreases performance immensely.

That obviously does not solve the charging problem.

I am experiencing the same thing on my Yoga 910.  I figured it was maybe because mine was a best buy open box, and the previous person was using a bad charger.  Now that I am doing the research, it seems that this is a common issue.  I think I am just going to return this laptop.  Its a shame because I love everything else about it(exept the right shift key).  Lenovo shouldn't advertise an "all day battery life" when it lasts on average of 4 hours.  And yes, PSM is a horrible solution.  We shouldn't have to do that in order to get the advertised battery life, and if so, it should be atleast 6 - 8 hrs without PSM if they are going to advertise as such.  This is definitely a deal breaker.
