I think 4-5 hours is pretty spot on, unfortunately, at lest for moderate usage (browsing, word processing, etc.) with the screen brightness pretty far up where it needs to be because of the relatively dim screen. 

 

It's really wrong of Lenovo to advertise the X1 as a 10+ hour machine.  Incidentally, Windows 10, while just the same battery efficiency on my Surface Pro 3, has taken a roughly 20% toll on my X1 Carbon so I used to be probably in the 5-7 range before Windows 10 but now, definitely closer to 4-5 hours until my day is done.  It feels like such a step backwards compared to my old MacBook Air which was a real 10-12 hours, just as Apple says.  Of course, everyone's mileage can vary.

Thanks for your inputs. 

 

Really hard to know 4-5 hours of battey life for 3k+ laptop is not at all a acceptable fact.

 

My requiremnt is 10+ hours of battery strech and less weight. That is the reason I choose to buy X1 instead of mac book and doubled the investment. I am not at all happy with battery life.I am trying to raise a service request from couple of weeks and I didn't find right channel to reach service desk.

 

Can you please help how I can reach service center department in Australia region.

 

Thanks in advance.
