Yoga C740 141ML i7 - Real world battery performance and how to improve

2020-01-28, 8:53 AM

I have a new C740 141ML i7 and using my machine for 8 hours of work a day, windows is giving me about 4 hours battery life on better performance mode with the screen about 90% and unplugged at full charge

This is a far cry from the stated performance and from reviews although i never expected it to be 13 hours, perhaps 7-8 max.

What performance are other people geting? Is this low? do I need to limit the i7 max cpu to squeeze out more hours?

Hi ,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, & other factors. There may be other things running in the background like virus scanners, Windows Updates, cloud storage synchronization that are shortening your battery life.

Hope this helps.
