X1 Extreme Gen 3 Battery Life

2020-10-05, 1:07 AM

I get about 3-4 hours of battery life on my X1 Extreme Gen 3, and that is with the mode being on "Battery Saver / Best Battery Life":




Any ideas what I can do to increase the battery life?


I have the 1920x1080 screen non-touch so I feel like it should last me far longer than that.

It should be appreciably longer, however it heavily depends on what you do. I can never comprehend how people get 10+ hours battery life.... that looks only possible if you don't do more than notepad text editing during those hours.... If I do browsing, email, documents (basically active office work) - I get max half of that. 


Why don't you start with Start Menu -  "See which apps are affecting your battery life"...? It will give you a good indication what applications are draining your battery.
