Bad battery life - T450S

2016-06-16, 5:39 AM


Just switched from a macbook air to a T450S. Really like the computer in general but the battery time sucks for me. I use quite heavy applications but I still only get about one hour battery time (even though I have tweaked the battery optimization settings in the Power Manager.


According to the specifications when I bought the computer, the batteries are of the type 6-cell litium jon 47wh.

Is there anything I can do to make the battery life better?

The T450s should even have two batteries if I am correct. You should contact technical support as fast as possible.

Also check your battery life either with Lenovo Solution Center or Lenovo Companion.

In Lenovo Companion you'll find it under:
System Health / Battery
