Relatively poor battery life on Lenovo Ideapad 320s and possible 30Wh -> 60Wh battery upgrade

Q: Relatively poor battery life on Lenovo Ideapad 320s and possible 30Wh -> 60Wh battery upgrade

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi everyone. I recently purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 for school and general purposes. In general I really like it, but I have noticed that the battery life is not like the 9h (or was it 6h?) that were advertised. I am getting around 2,5-3,5h of battery life, while I'm doing some light tasks like surfing the web. I should also note that this is with power saving mode on. Have I gotten a bad battery or is this basically what I can expect with this product?  You can see the specs in this link: http://www.prisjakt.nu/produkt.php?e=3019464

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14, poor battery life?

I have been using this Laptop for more than a year now, and Im really disappointed with the battery life. Before that May-June 2017 Windows 10 update, Im normally getting around 3-4 hours of laptop runtime with minimal to moderate tasks, but now it was reduced to half. I already did the following:1. Battery replaced (original not oem or cheap knock-off)2. Windows 10 Reset3. Control background apps and start-up items.4. Everything was updated, even the Bios. When I complained about it, the service center mentioned something that it has something to do with being connected to a Wifi Network, even without downloading any updates. Kindly refer this to your engineering team. Also, the few minutes upon booting this laptop, the machine is somewhat laggy in terms of response, like asking someone who had just waken-up to do task that requires speed and precision. Lenovo might try to communicate with Microsoft regarding this matter as I believe that the system was not optimized for the succeding updates as of June last year.

Hi I recently bought an Ideapad Y700-14isk. The model is 80NU000WUS. I am having issues with the battery. Since the first day the battery life has been very poor. While using windows 10 power saving settings, and also graphics options set to power save, I am only able to get 1.5-2 hours when running minimal programs and no games. I just use chrome to study but the battery life is incredibly poor. Has anyone else been having issues with the 14" version? I was wondering if the battery is upgradeable to a higher capacity, and where I could possibly buy one from. I understand its a gaming laptop but 2 hours on a full charge while studying power point slides in the chrome browser is just too poor for me. Please let me know if any of you have this issue, and if there is a way to buy a higher capacity battery. Any input helps. Thanks in advance.  I spoke to tech support twice and both times they seemed very clueless. Not helpful at all.

I got a Lenovo 320S a few days ago and started it up plugged in. Unfortunately at 100% it says it only has like 2 hours and 15 minutes remaining. It goes through the first 20% pretty quickly but then it slows down and goes up to 4 hours or so. I just left it there for a few minutes or so at 33% and it went down to 5%. Is the battery still stuck in Ship Mode? It's supposed to last for 7 hours. I don't think I can remove the battery and I have already tried an apparent solution where you press the power button for 90 seconds with the PC turned off and then you plug it in again. That does not solve the problem. I'll need to be carrying this PC around so it's pretty urgent.

This is the second time I upgraded my laptop to Vista from XP, and this time the battery life sucks.
First time, battery lasted about 1-2 hours.
With XP, it's 2-2.5 hours.
Now, it's 30-45 minutes.
How can I improve this life? Or does it improve with time as ReadyBoost and SuperFetch or something settles in?

Hi, I've had my HP Envy 15 for abou 1.5 years now, but the battery has never lasted more than 1.5 hours without a charge. This seems awful short for a product that advertises online as 8-9 hours.  I've bought a replacement battery (no change), people always post online that it's related to the brightness settings (mine is set at just about 1/3 bright... ie not bright at all), and I've read about redoing the battery control method in Device Manager.  None of these have had any effect.   There has to be something that can be done to get a laptop to last longer than this.  90 minute battery life doesn't even make it much of a laptop anymore and keeps me constantly locked to a desk.  Any thoughts?  Or any possible batteries that actually work better than this one?

I have the same problem with my 15-ba079dx. After a bad customer service I experienced and the weird set up that disallows native admin to make changes to the OS on a desktop, I vowed to never buy an HP again. However, I was lured by a fantastic price on this touchscreen w powerhouse specs for the price after I accidentally killed my beloved Toshiba. Since jump, the battery longevity has been AWFUL. I cannot even watch a full movie; I'm getting 90 min or even less. It made the laptop useless for school, since most classrooms don't have plugs at desks and I wound up carrying a brick all day before even the 1st class finished.

Hey there! So I just picked up my Yoga 3 14 after reading a number of reviews. From what I read people seem to to be clocking up around 7 hours. Since owing the machine I have updated the OS to Windows 10 and installed a few bits and bobs. As I sit here with the screen brightness at 50% Windows tells me that I have 2 hours remaining. Naturally this estimate varies quite a bit but I generally seem to be getting around 3 hours of light use. Running the windows battery health check shows that the battery looks OK so I'm not sure why I seem to be getting less battery life than the revewers, unless Windows 10 is a massive battery hog. Also, I tend to keep the brightness around 50% and the power plan on balanced. Any more Yoga 3 14 owners out there? How does your battery fair?

Hi! A few months ago I bought a Dell E7450. One of the main reasons for choosing this laptop was the battery. According to reviews it should do over 8 hrs of web surfing. 
That apparently was far from the truth. The laptop at best does 3-4 hours of moderate use. Probably because of the nvidia 840m GPU. I thought I would be able to manually disable the GPU in BIOS, but there is no option for that.
Is there any way to increase battery life? Would dell support be able to help me in any way?

Hello people , as is it mentioned in the title the battery capacity of my ideapad which i bought it s been now 6-7months dropped from 60Wh when it was brand new to 52.6Wh for the moment also the autonomy from 4h20m to 3h40m/3h30mand my question is :is this normal ? I mean yeah it s a normal loss , but i didn t used the battery that much , most of the time it s on conservation mode for the games or video/audio editing,maybe it s the temperature ;sometimes it reaches 41C but i don t know if it s harmful for the lifespan (if yes , what is the maximum temperature for a Li-ion battery?);and the number of cycles is 68. Thank you in advance

A:Battery capacity droped from 60Wh to 52.6Wh

Run it down and take out of conservation mode and when its back to 100% see what the capacity is. Run times are not great even with minimal use of email and some browsing as I was using mine yesterday on battery after charging fully from Conservation mode. I had work done in the house and had to move to a different area so I just ran on battery. OEM runtimes are quite optimist with saving modes all on and performance mode off etc I am sure. A few watts lower is no big deal but if its way down before your warranty gets around 10 months I would contact Lenovo for a replacement battery.

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Laptop battery not charging, battery not identified, 0% battery life

It sounds likely the charge circuit on the mainboard is damaged.  Contact Dell to have the mainboard replaced under warranty.

Hi,I recently bought Ideapad 510s - 14ISK (i7) and the battery life is just awful.It lasts about 1hr and 50 min on Balanced while browsing Internet or watching a movie. Is this normal ? I previously had a crappy 4yr old Samsung laptop and even after 4 years the battery life on it was better than on my new Lenovo. Thanks !
