Battery life indication after Windows 10 reinstall

2019-07-05, 6:14 AM

Hi everyone, about a week ago I bought a pre-owned but unused Thinkpad T480, I went through the usual Windows 19 set up process and was seeing around 8 hours battery life, as expected, but then I got the dreaded Thunderbolt firmware issue and after looking for solutions I decided to just install Windows 10 1903, a few days ago.

Since the new installation my indicated battery life has been all over the place, for the first couple of it wouldn't show more than 4 hours on full charge, this morning it is showing about 6 1/2 hours and is fluctuating quite a lot, surely I haven't lost an hour and a half of battery life in 8 days of use?

Any ideas? TIA.

Hi,

I have a smilar issue with my T480, i first noticed it after my SSD install. I have even done a resinatall of the OS, the battery shows huge differences at times, it shows 4-6hrs at times and then it shoots upto 8hrs, not sure if this is a normal thing with the windows 10 battery usage. 

I had created a thread as well, but then did not get a favourable response

My displayed battery life also fluctuates wildly, it would appear that Lenovo don't care at all about this issue.
