Thinkpad X1 7th Generation - TERRIBLE BATTERY LIFE PLEASE HELP

Model  20QD0000US 

Intel Core i7 

1080p 

14" Touchscreen FHD Display 

512 GB SSD, 16GB RAM 

 

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.
