Hello, I have bought a new 56++ battery for my lenovo W540. The battery life is atrocious. About 1 hour and I'm at 50%
power plan for battery is balanced. 30 day standby is on. battery charge threshold is off.

Hi billbixby! thanks for posting in our community. The battery life will depend on what application you are using and the hardware processes running while using it. Also, check the power settings you have including the brightness, wireless connection at bluetooth.

I understand your pain.
In comparision to battery life from reviews it sucks.
I got 2/3 capacity of the bigger battery and I get 2h of watching a movie with full battery saving settings.
Lenovo doesn't care that important battery optimizations have stopped working since many years. It's easy to say that Windows 10 is not supported for W540. I got problems with battery for 3 years. My friend with W541 claims the same.
Once I've fix it: https://blog.ww86.eu/os/2016/10/30/windows-core-parking-saving.html
I were reaching almost 5h !!!
After few Windows updates I got again 2h
