Purchased the X1 7th generation @ Costco 3 days ago. I know they made the battery smaller compared to the 6th gen; however @ 98% charge it reads 4 hours 55 minutes.
Have been keeping track of the battery discharge, consistently the battery has abysmal readings for an ultrabook.
90% 7hours 01min
80% 3 hr. 44min
70% 2 hr. 12 min
Can someone please confirm if they're having similar difficulties with their X1 7th gen?
I love everything about this computer but if the battery can't hold a charge for at least 8 hours - I'll have to return it.
Any suggestions? or Alternative ultrabooks?
I'm a medical school student- only use the device for reading/editing documents, religiously use one note and spotify - but that doesn't explain the incredible lackluster battery performance.

I bet it's related.
