Battery life on x201

2014-03-11, 11:51 AM

I just bought a used x201 with the docking station that is about 2 years old.  The warranty is in effect until Nov of this year.

 

What I wanted to know, what is the life of a fully charged battery.  My x201 has 8gb ram, Intel i7 processor.  It also has that 9 cell battery.  I hope that I have given you enough info.

 

I appreciate your help.  Thanks a bunch.

 

Chuck

Hi Chuck,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Many factors affect the amount of time that a laptop battery can deliver power before it must be recharged. The LCD brightness setting has a large effect on battery run time and will vary greatly between different users and systems.

 

Other factors include the system configuration (battery size, processor type, memory, etc.), the types of applications being run (playing DVDs or games) and the Power plans used. Exposure to extreme temperature conditions can also affect the life of a battery.

 

Refer the ThinkPad X201 datasheet where it says you can get a battery life up to 11 hours for a 9 cell battery.

 

Best regards,

Mithun.

I just wanted to thank everybody for their help.  I did make a mistake in my original post.  I don't think that it really makes any difference.  The laptop is about 4 months old, not the 2 years that I reported.  I am getting about 4 to 5 hours with the wifi turned off.  I haven't done anything as far as reducing the brightness.  The reason that I asked this question was because I had read that the x201 was supposed get 10 to 11 hours on the battery.  I am obliviously not getting that.  Still I don't think 4 to 5 hours is that bad.  I am really liking it so far.

 

Again I really appreciate everybody that responded to my post.

 

Chuck

10 to 11 hrs is probably using an i3 with SSD during idling. The Arrandale full voltage CPUs generates a lot of heat and use lot of power.
