Thinkpad X1E battery issue?

2019-08-10, 7:47 AM
 
Hello I've been having trouble getting more than 3-4 hours of batery life on my X1 Extreme (i5) I usually have it on less than 50% brightness and on power saver mode turning off the 1050ti doesn't seem to affect the battery life, all intel hd settings are set to max battery and monitor is even running at 48hz to conserve battery.

all the settings i can find are on maximum battery, does anybody know why this is?

I thought that I was supposed to get even more battery life than just 3-4 hours... :(

BIOS version is N2EET41W (1.23)

embedded controller version is N2EHT26W (1.11)

 

EDIT: power usage never seems to go below 13w and I have the FHD panel

Solved! See the solution

Install Intel XTU and check TDP in idle. If nothing working in background you schould see TDP beetwen 1-3W.

did some more testing ended up doing a lot of battery cycles 0-100% and some battery calibration in Vantage now I get up to 15 hours! (if careful)

 

on my usual usage I get 10-ish hours :)
