Hi, everybody

I am from Sri Lanka and boutht X61 tablet from USA recently. My battery is 4 cell and it does not stay charged more than an hour even if i sent it on power saver plan. I am really disspaointed with Lenovo's claim of 4 hours battery. This is despite not using any graphics or any multimedia fetures. Can anybody help me in this?

Well, firstly, you have to get into Power Manager: Battery Information tab to see the Full charge capacity and design capacity. If you found that full charge capacity was really lower than design capacity; let's say 60% or so. I think you got a defective one. You should call Lenovo and ask for a battery replacement asap.


However, if its condition is still good, we have to see what you have done on your tablet and why this happened.There are many factors effecting battery life such as WIFI, bluetooth, screen brightness, how many programs you were running, etc.
