I went into the NVIDIA control panel and switched the preferred graphics card to integrated, then for games I selected the NVIDIA card. Now I can get 9hrs on 84% battery in Eco mode with screen at 40%, and blue tooth turned off. Before (even with disabling and renabling the NVIDIA card) I would get a max of about 6hrs on a full charge. I have the FHD screen and i7-9750H. 

 

However, now just checking it says 4hrs on 83% charge... it clearly can't make up its mind... Also the Better Battery mode gives 7hrs 32min vs Eco Mode at 5hrs (see it just changed again).

So, yeah. $1,600 spent on a laptop that marketed itself as having one of the best batteries on a premium laptop.... One year later and I get just over 4 hours of use per charge! And have had 15% battery degradation. Wth Lenovo!?  See screenshots below of my laptop specs and battery report details.

 

Of course the advertised battery life specs on laptops is never the reality, but saying 14+ hours in you marketing materials and then in reality you get 4 hours is, IMO, dishonest.

 

I use my laptop for work and it's been well taken care of. Really disappointed and won't be buying a Lenovo next time around. I really don't want to have to go back to the Apple world though...

In the same boat as you. Though for me it might be because of my browsing habits considering I never have less than 50 tabs open in Chrome as well as a host of other apps. The only problem though is that even if I were to change to just idling at the desktop or just watching a youtube video, it still burns through battery like nothing. Netflix playback using the desktop app is probably the only use case in where you can get something close to the rated battery life.
