Barely 3 hours of battery life on a 3 month old 3rd Gen X1 Carbon

2016-02-15, 20:58 PM

Decided to take my laptop to scool last week to stream an NBA game during class.  When the game was over I had about 20% batterly life.  Barely enough juice to use the laptop to view websites. 

 

That 20% battery life didn't last long at all. Laptop barely lasted 3 hours total. Yes, this laptop charges quickly but whats the point of that when the laptop only last about 3 hours?  Maybe 5 hours if I didn't stream the game.  But no where near the 7 hours I read about before getting this laptop....

 

System Info:

2.6 GHz I7 5600U

Windows 10 Pro

8GB ram

Good day.

 

If you feel that your battery is wearing excessively, I would recommend calling Service (info below) to discuss. IIRC, system batteries carry a one-year warranty, unless optionally extended.

 

Out of curiosity, what battery info (# of cycles, full-charge capacity, design capacity) do you see in Lenovo Settings?

 

Regards.

Thanks for the info. Nothing looks bad there.

 

For comparison, mine are:

# of Cycles: 132

First use date: 4/14/2015

Full Charge Capacity: 48.17 Wh (~4% wear)

Design Capacity: 50.08 Wh

I get ~6 hours of general usage down to between 15-20% battery. I don't run it down past that.

 

I'd recommend that you chat with Service. They may have advice on things you can do to extend your run-time.

 

Regards.
