Lenovo thinkpad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen battery drain on low screen brightness.

2018-04-17, 19:57 PM

Recently, bought Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen. Spent a premium price and I am very disappointed with the battery, even after optimization with low brightness. Why are they advertising 15 H?

Right, it's hard to reach 15 hours. I do if I set the screen brightness as dark as it goes and spend my hours only reading news articles online. I can even squeeze out a bit more than 15 hours that way. But that's not realistic use. At normal use, which for me means browsing and typing, I get 6-10 hours depending on screen brightness etc.

Thanks for the input. I am having second thought about returning the laptop. Average use should at least give 10 hours. I don't know if I have a practical solution.

I was super hyped to get this as well but the battery is really BAD. With visual studio, my Alienware 13 gave me around 3 hours and this gives me 4 hours if I am lucky :(
