lenovo yoga 710 14 inch IKB battery life

hello there fellow Yoga 710 users, 

 

one of the reasons why i picked up this Yoga 710 is because of its 'above average' battery life to compare with its competitor. this is based on reviews that i read and watch on youtube. 

 

however, after using it for a few days, i dont think i was able to hit 7 hours or more on this machine. i did not put it under extreme load as i was using it only for word processing etc. 

 

from the battery notification, it says around 4 hours and 40 minutes at 100 percent. 

 

any of you guys encounter the same problem? or you guys were able to hit 7 hours or more for the battery life? just want to make sure that my battery is not draining for no reason

 

appreciate your input guys 

 

thanks

Re: lenovo yoga 710 14 inch IKB battery life

Sorry for being a bit off topic, haven't real battery duration experiences to report yet, but I'm concerned about the battery wear level. My battery health is now down -22% after 2,5 weeks of use (mainly various device configuration tasks). Not acceptable! Do you guys see something similar, or is just my battery an unfortunate piece of junk? Yoga 710 14" i7 7th gen, running Win 10 Home Insider Preview 1607 14986.1001.

I'd say it's garbage. I dont have noticeable wear on my laptop, I use it everyday half/full charge.

Did you ever find a solution or reason to why this is happening?

Did you ever end up going to support?

710-14IKB.
I noticed that when I first power up after charging my yoga it lists something like 4 ½ hours left. After it drains for a few minutes (maybe 5-10?) It correctly displays about 7-8 hours.
Other than heavy CPU, SSD, or memory load, having the screen brightness up high will definitely shorten your time on battery. I usually have my screen just above half brightness in a bright room, lower in a dark room.
For the battery health issue, it definitely sounds like something's wrong/defective but I would start with a reinstall of the lenovo software and a complete drain (down to 3%) and recharge.

Yeah I'm kinda getting the same problem. I've had it for a while so maybe a battery replacement would work!
