Thinkpad E580 disappointing battery life

Hi gang,


Just got my E580 and I love it so far except for the battrey life which was advertised at 13 hours. Now I understand this isn't a realistic number to shoot for but i'm getting around 4-5 hours from general browsing, I was hoping for around 10. Does anyone know of Lenovo will release a higher capacity internal battery or whether this may be a driver issue?

Re: Thinkpad E580 disappointing battery life


I've just installed Ubuntu 18.04 ,

the Battery Life is about 3-4 Hour ( with very low brightness) (doing nothing but internet surfing! even just with LAN connection! WIFI is OFF)

I disabled the AMD and just use Intel GPU, the battery lasts for 6-7 Hour.

BIOS updated to : 1.24

what would be the solution?
