T450s battery life lacking

Hi

Anyone using Thinkpad T450s, everything is good excepet for the battery life. I bought late in 2015, I usually have a 3-4 hours unpludged, which only do some document editing, web browsing and some stuff like that, It is supposed to be 8 hours, is that right?

What the hell should I do?!!

Re: T450s battery life lacking

Hello and welcome,

 

I can't answer directly but it will depend on the combination of internal and external batteries you're running.  There were several options.

 

Which do you have?

Re: T450s battery life lacking

But how can I find the information about the internal and external battery options? I can see that my laptop are running 2 batteries!

I hope this helps.

Select your battery icon at the bottom right of your screen.  

Select “Battery”.

Select “Battery Maintenance”.

Select “Battery Reset” and follow the steps.

Good Luck!

Re: T450s battery life lacking

Thanks so much!

But I didn't find the "Battery", so there is no "Battery maintance" and next several steps.

When I clicked battery icon at the bottom right of the screen, the only thing I can choose is

"Power and sleep settings" and "Battery saver". And I can't find anything like"Battery maintaince" in these two buttons. Neither can they be found when I search the windows.

So what can I do next?

Thanks again!

Sorry, my mistake. 

Try right clicking on the icon and selecting "Battery Information"

This should bring up a program called "Power Manager"

Battery maintenance will be on this screen.

Good Luck!
