Brand New T480 Battery Drains Quickly?

2018-12-28, 3:10 AM

Hey! I was trying to test my batteries for the first time today (on second day of the arrival) and I have simply just used Chrome (around 5-6 tabs) to do my work/job. However, after 8 hours, I am on 5% (of internal) and 61% of external battery.

Power Mode in Windows 10 also set to Battery Saver (very left)

Is it something normal? I have my MX150 disabled completely, has 0% of load and the rest of the programs are also closed. Just Wifi is on and the screen is around on 20% 

 


From what I heard a T460s last long about 7-8 hours with internet use, however it has only a 24Wh battery. Mine has 24 plus the 72 Wh cylindrical battery, I guess, this should be way more or not?

Hi, have you figured that out already? I'm also having the same issue.

Not really, I am rarely using it with battery.
