T430s Windows 8 battery life

Hello,

 

I have new Lenovo laptop, type T430s (2353-2QV). I was realized to try Windows 8 and reinstalled it using lenovo w8 drivers. But something is wrong with battery life. It is very weak. I was hope that I can use my laptop on battery more than 4 hours, but depens on usage, I can use it maximum for about 3 hours. And that is not right, from my point of view. I do not have informatiom how much time is battery life on W7, but I think it is much better.

 

Please, can anybody  tell me if it is right or not and what I can do with it? I welcome the response not only from users with same type of laptop.

 

Thank you in advance.

Peter

Hello dissss,

 

thank you for your reply.

 

I have the six cell battery. After one week of using my laptop on W8 I have to say that normally I can work about 3 hours on battery, which is weak for this professional laptop.
