I bought my unit beginning of October 2013 and have had problems with the battery ever since.
Lenovo falsely gives the battery life as up to 6 hours. A BIG lie!
The battery has never lasted more than 1 1/2 hours on regular usage ie. no internet, no videos.
I received a replacement battery this past Thursday and after testing it, found out it has the very same longevity of up to 1 1/2 hours ONLY. VERY appalling!!
And, on top of it all, even when the laptop is off, the battery for some reason is being consumed. When I charge it before going to bed, it shows as being 100% charged, and in the morning, it shows as 90%. How can this be?
And also, when in usage at a charging of 100% (2h 45min), after about 10-15 mins, it shows 89% (1 h 25 mins).
Again, how is this possible, Lenovo??!!
My old Ipod Touch of 2009 has a much longer battery life! It still charges to last a period of up to a week even with watching over 5 movies each lasting arond 1130 mins, and listening to music.
If anyone is considering this model, I´d seriously advise againss it - it comes with way too many nerve wreckiing negatives eg. a very, very short battery life, and also keyboard issues.
