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.
