Lenovo Yoga 500 Battery Life

Q: Lenovo Yoga 500 Battery Life

I have a Yoga 500, battery drains from 100% to 5% in 80mins. This is with it just sitting there doing nothing. Is this normal? I sent it off for repair to Medion- it's come back with no comments other than it's been tested and everything is OK. So - what's the average batter life - surely it should be up around 5 hours, not 1.5 hours?

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

update - sent the laptop off again and came back again saying that it's working OK. The workshop reckon that 90mins is the expected drain time of the battery. SURELY this is wrong?

Hi guys, I've had my Yoga 900 since December 2015 and I enjoy this ultrabook.  I am concerned about the battery life though. The specs say up to 9 hours of battery life, but based on my usage I would have to say that I am only confident of 6 hours worth of charge. My typical use is as follows: 1) Approximately 75% screen brightness (225 nits)2) Combo of WiFi with multiple Google Chrome tabs open, video and music usage mixed in my typical day. Those of you with the Yoga 900, would you say that this is normal or typical? Thanks, Nik

Hi, I have a thinkpad t450 but want a new slightly more compact laptop with a better screen. Among my considerations from Lenovo would be the Yoga 260 or 460 models. How would people here rate them? I'd be looking for a minimum of 8.5 hours of battery. Could anybody say whether this is achievable? I've looked at online reviews which say anything from 6-9 hours for the 260, and I doubt somewhat Lenovos own clain of 12. Could anyone tell me how long theres would go on before running out of juice and any other considerations I should have when making a decision.

Hi, I normally use my yoga 2 pro like a desktop, and I wanted to ask - how do you take care of its battery? I'm not clear as to what to do. You can't remove the battery from the unit. I have it plugged in to the ac power outlet most times. I typically charge it to a 100 percent and then switch off the ac power and let it drain down to 30 percent or so - but only when I remember to. Most often it's running from AC power and its charged fully to 100 percent. I'd be grateful for any advice on how to take care of the yoga 2 pro's battery when I use it like a desktop? Thank you,Lakshmi

Open Lenovo Energy Manager, click on the three dots(followed by lines) at the right edge of the Energy Manager just below the close 'x' icon, then head to Settings tab, and click on the button for Conservation Mode. Note that your battery will no charge above 60 percent if you turn this mode on. This will help increase your battery life.

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?

I just purchased a ThinkPad Yoga 14 and I noticed that the battery life is projected to be about 4 hours on a full charge. I thought that this would be much longer, perhaps twice that. Has anyone noticed this? Should the battery life be about 8 hours or is 4 hours or typical?

Hi all,Just made the jump to W10 and first thing I noticed is I have double the battery drain during idel. Not good.I've been working through process I can kill/disable and cleared out Skype, Search etc. and it was still a battery killer so now I've killed all of the Intel processes. Is this bad? I don't see any change in performance or heating, but I'm back to the old W8 idle drain of 5000 - 6000 which is 8+ hours of idle with screen at 50%.Is this safe does anybody know? I never killed the Intel stuff under W8.Otherwise I really like W10 but if the battery is this bad and I need those processes for safe running I'll revert to W8.

My Yoga 2 11 bought had been getting good battery life (5-6 hours) but now (in an instant) it's draining very fast (1-2 hours MAX on a full charge) and it's unusually hot underneath. It's always been used on a clean, hard surface. Help??? 

A:Yoga 2 11 Running hot with short battery life

Hi David_EMG  , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It would help if you can generate a battery report ( ac charger unplugged). 
How is the battery health if you hover the cursor on the battery icon below?
 
Battery is a consumable part and depletes its resources in time and heat is one of the factors that can affect battery life. Try running hardware diagnostics along side with this and this test for comparison. 
 
Check the battery status LED indicator (page29) if it goes to the changes from amber blinking to solid white on full charge .  Calibration either using the energy manager via battery gauge reset can also help. Manually you can allow the battery to completely drain and wait for 1-2 hours and then charge it full.
 
Update us how things go. 
 
Regards

I google for a new battery and found this option, so my question is this, would it fit my laptop and if so would it bring about much more battery life?  http://www.chargers-pc.co.uk/lenovo-laptop-batteries-c-52_11/original-laptop-battery-lenovo-z5170-48... this is the one that is currently in the laptop:http://www.chargers-pc.co.uk/lenovo-laptop-batteries-c-52_11/laptop-battery-lenovo-z41-z51-z4170-z41... I only get around 2 hours usage, which is unacceptable, and you can see why as the battery is about the same size as most tablets which is rediculous ThanksGeorge

Hi Guys, I'm very fine with my P50 (4k-Screen, Modell: 20EQS00600). Everything is great except battery life. Before I upgraded to Windows 10 Anniversary, I had a battery life for about 7 hours which was great for a power machine like this. After upgrading to it, my battery life is now about 3 Hours and I didn't change anything. My workload is also the same. There is also no process in the background which is killing the battery and the Intel graphic chip is working fine. I absolutly have no clue what I can do. But honestly, I don't want to reinstall, because this would take ages.

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

I just finished the most recent Windows 10 Update around 7:00 pm EST on May 11, 2016. After it rebooted, I noticed the BATTERY indicator icon showing 95% in the GREEN icon. The black and white smaller battery icon shows 95% Available (Plugged in, not charging)! Both have been stuck in this position for over two hours. I just had not noticed this before, so not sure when this issue started. I can use some help in how to resolve this problem. Thank you very much.

By looking at your requirement, you prefer on-the-go PC that lets you do all that on a decent budget, SP4 is better than SB(if you want lightweight device and decent battery life), Lenovo's are pretty good too. X1 w/o OLED seems to be a better buy in terms of ultraportability and battery life. You could wait for others to chime in.

A:best battery to give longest battery life?

Assuming that they are all designed to fit your laptop, you need to look at the ratings. Basically, you want the one with the greatest Ah (amp?re-hour) as that should last longest. Although this usually means the battery with the most cells, it doesn't always follow. Check their specifications.

My Yoga 3 pro is still a nightmare and so far is unusable given onging battery problems. However I digress. The thing wouldn't charge past 72% and took 2 days to get to that from 51%. So yet again I searched the net hoping to find something new and I noted yet another updated battery guage realeased only a few days ago. I also noted that someone had suggested deleting the windows battery drivers in Device Manager after disconnecting the battery which I figured couldn't hurt so went ahead. Once I reconnected the battery, plugged it in and waited for it to download the battery drivers, I noted it didn't install the ACPI component. Now lo and behold, I have no battery guage at all. In fact it says "The battery is not used", but of course it is. I then tried the latest battery guage driver but no improvement. Can anyone help in this age old problem? Cheers

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

I am having a message that says "Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached" message that appears after Windows 8.1 starts up. A similar sort of message appears before even Windows boots up, and I need to press the 'Esc' key in order for Windows to boot. This seems to have happened after a recent Windows update. I have uninstalled an reinstalled the Lenovo Power Management Driver but it does not appear to have fixed the issue. My BIOS is the latest version. This issue is on my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S1. Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga is displaying a message stating ?Genuine Lenovo Battery Not Attached?.
 
I would suggest you to perform Flee Power ? remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect the battery and AC adapter to turn ON the computer.
Get into BIOS and load defaults, save and exit.
 
Open Device Manager and under Battery Look for Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control method Battery, right Click on it and uninstall it, Restart after uninstallation.
 
Please let me know the happenings!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

As a follow up, I'm just curious if this is a widespread issue?  Anyone have loose battery in their x230 / x220?  I'm not talking about it falling out...but just a few millimeters of wiggle room.  Basically when i pick mine up or place it down, I can feel / hear the battery move.  I'm just trying to get an idea if this is a real problem or thats just how every thinkpad is.  I called support and they are sending someone to replace the base panel and we'll see if that fixes it.  I'll update this post when it get's replaced.   Edit* I also asked the lenovo support rep if they had heard of this issue and they said no, never.  I don't see how this is possible as if you do a google search for thinkpad loose battery there are many results.

Hello, In august I bought new Lenovo B50-80 notebook. One month ago, I was checking HWmonitor and I saw that the battery wear level is 11%. PowerShell battery test in Windows 10 says the same ? at one of a charge battery wear. Which I think 11% is to much. I use my notebook as a secondary PC. In two months of usage, I charged max 15 times (and before always depleted to 15%).I tried RMA the battery, but I did not have any success. They say that the battery is OK, if notebook does not automatically shut down.I would like to know if this is normal wear for battery and the answer from RMA guys.If it is not, how can I contact directly Lenovo?Please advise.Best regards.B.

A:Battery Life

Hi wizkid, Vista is more resource demanding, more heat is generated which causing the fan running in full blast often. Also, there always process working on the back ground such as indexing or defrag as such. So, I guess there is not much you can do about it.

if the motherboard battery does go dead, when you boot it up you'll probably get a "CMOS Checksum " error....

meaning all the settings in the BIOS setup area are at default including the time/date.......you'll have to rest it

you may want to keep a record of that stuff, or sell it for a couple bucks *-)

One thing that i though was perhaps a problem from stuff i heard is that it is not good for it to leave it charging when its fully charged because of the way its managed it keeps putting little bits of charge in, is that true with win 7. Because i like to paly games with the laptop plugged in for performance so its annoying about charging it. There also the whole thing about letting it run flat then fully charge it. Just any tips on what you do and whether the above is acutally true would be appreciated, thanks

A:Y40 - Battery life only last 30 min

In response to customer reports of unexpected battery gauge behavior on Y40-70 and Y40-80 laptops, Lenovo determined the battery gauge software is performing as expected. The unusual gauge results being reported are a reflection of the battery reaching end of life.
 
Lenovo has released a Service TIP to assist customers with obtaining battery replacements under warranty, or if out of warranty, to find a replacement battery from Lenovo-approved vendors. The Service TIP can be found here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/sf16-I0023
 
The part numbers for Y40-70/80 batteries are:
Y40 SP/A L13M4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500248
Y40 LG L13L4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500249 substitute part 121500251

To determine which battery came with your Y40 notebook, instructions for removing the bottom cover can be found in the Hardware Maintenance Manual pdf here. An alternative to opening your system (which does not void warranty) is to search for batteries using the model/product number located on the bottom cover.

We do get quite a few complaints about the x360 battery life. What kind of runtime are you seeing? Are you trying to follow a plan to extend battery runtime? The biggest single thing is screen brightness. Also, since we are a User to User Forum we have no way to know what HP is doing in response to specific complaints. I do know there is no other battery available except the factory part.

Hi everyone!

I couldn't find a discussion on battery life in Windows 7, so I decided to create a thread.

I recently installed Windows 7 Build 6956 on my laptop to try it for some time. I'm liking it so far. Using the Balanced power option in 7 I'm getting maybe 20 minutes longer battery life compared to using the Power Saver option in Vista. I'm guessing this is a good improvement since Balanced still allows full performance when needed and Vista cuts performance. I haven't tried Power Saver in 7 yet, but I guess it might give me a little extra time.

Has anyone else timed their battery life?


PS: I also noticed a difference in wake up time from sleep when I open the laptop lid. Windows 7 takes just a second to wake up and Vista takes about 4-5 seconds. Has anyone else noticed this difference?

Hey hethoofd,

I havent got around to running 7 on battery yet, but yes I am suitably impressed by Startup, wakeup, from both sleep and hibernate and reboot times.

The power saving that I have seen so far seems also pretty impressive. I am mainly surfing the forums not the best of tests but it does allow me to see how 7 switches down during periods of inactivity.

When I get around to using bat I'll let you know

I just recently purchased a new laptop, and would like to know some steps to help my battery life span lasts longer. My last laptop battery life span wasn't long and it was only months before it wouldn't last longer than 15 min unplugged. I'm unsure if letting it stay on battery, or leaving it plugged in charging for many hours hurts or helps my total life span of my battery. I would like to hopefully have my battery life span lasts a long time so I don't have to purchase those nice inflated $200 replacement batteries from HP. Any tips are appreciated, thanks.

Not sure if this is the place to put this question. But for my laptop battery, it doesnt last long then 15 mins until windows tells me that i got 10 minutes left in my batteries.

So my question is that is there any programs for windows that can help me recharge my batteries? or is my battery dead and need to buy a new one now?

Anything will help! Thanks in advance!

I have noticed that the icon indicating remaining battery life on my gateway vista operated lap top is no longer displayed. I thus cannot see how much power I have remaining when operating on battery. This fault appears to have occurred at about the same time as i lost the ability to read the SD cards I insert. Could the errors be related and both require the same fix/remedy. What should I try?
 

A:Icons for battery Life

If it's this easy...right click the start menu button, and select Properties. Go to the notification area tab and make sure that POWER is checked. Otherwise I'm not sure.

Battery 10 min (40% remaining), 16 min (60%), it is weird. I'd say nothing if I had 15% but 40% and only 10 min, it's too little. All the time I just sit with this cord and never bring the laptop to the lessons, just because the battery life doesn't seem to last quite enough
I definitely have problems with the battery, don't I?
 

A:Solved: Low Battery Life

I'm afraid that's probably just a natural degradation, everything wears out at some point and laptop batteries are no exception. Though they are rechargable, after a number of charge/discharge cycles they change chemically and start to lose their ability to hold charge.

It may be possible to perform a process known as calibrating the battery to restore it to some extent, particularly if the problem is actually associated with the energy meter on the battery. However this only works for certain kinds of battery.

The alternative is that you will have to buy a new battery for your laptop.

Okay so here's a challenge, I need to find a laptop that can last about 6 hours or better on a battery for around 700$ - 1000$...
It only needs to be able to do word/email/internet type things... something semi-decent for a normal person that doesn't do anything that requires powerful components...
I myself have never seen such a thing exist... so I'm asking everyone here...
 

A:Laptop with 6 hr or better battery life?

To me this seems a fundamental feature that is missing, Battery level indicator. On desktop it is there bottom right where it has always been but in metro it is not on the metro tiles & not even under settings, infact in metro I cannot find the battery states level anywhere??? Since microsoft is moving to metro from desktop it seems silly that the battery level is not pinned onto metro.How do I find the battery level in metro & is there a way to add the battery level onto metro as a time or somewhere else on the metro screen.Thanks

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?
 

A:Poor battery life

I would first just go through the Power Option settings

Right-Click, the battery icon, and select power options, then select change plan settings for whatever plan, and then select change advanced power settings.

It looks like something HP have yet to fix, but read through the thread right to the end where a user managed to get it resolved and see whether there is something in there that helps in your case.

I have a Acer Aspire V5 laptop. When I was running Win 8.1, the battery life wasn't great, but lasted about 2 1/2 - 3 hours.
Now that I upgraded to Windows 10, the last time I turned it on the battery meter said 52 %. Two minutes later, it was dead.
I just turned it on after charging it, and the meter read 98%, 1 hr 50 min remaining. I haven't touched it yet, and five minutes later the battery's down to 90 %, although it says that there's 3 hr 5 min remaining. When I do any work on it, the battery goes down drastically. Does this have anything to do with Windows 10?

Hi

First of all, I am new to the forum so hi to everyone! This forum so far looks fantastic and so do the members!

Getting to the issue: I currently have Vista and want to not have Vista ASAP!
I need to know if Windows 7 improves on battery life, and if so, by how much? Please provide your knowledge and links(if any) to outside websites that has looked at 7 battery life.

I have a Dell M1530 laptop which has about 5 hours battery life on balance settings. But I really need about 6-8 hours for my work. Many thanks in advance.

I was wondering if I could get an answer about the battery life on the Dell XPS nbsp The specifications state up to hours of battery life on it I HIGHLY doubt that s realistic under normal circumstances especially with the i I hear the i model only gets up to hours of battery life Is that right I mean realistically with the TDP there s no way you could get on an i What about the battery on the i model It surely doesn t get hours either does it And am I correct to believe the i doesn t allow switchable graphics They advertise it as having nVidia Optimus technology but from what I can tell the i don t support switchable graphics Yet I ve heard some XPS life? Dell 15 Battery reports of Dell technicians claiming that the i models did support Optimus so I m a little confused nbsp If someone could please tell me what kind of battery Dell XPS 15 Battery life? life I could get on it with the -cell I would appreciate it I m thinking to buy an XPS but if the specifications aren t what they re claiming to be I don t want to buy it find out it was false advertising and ship it back effectively wasting my time

A:Dell XPS 15 Battery life?

No the XPS 15 will NOT get 9 hours with either of the i7 core cpu's. You are correct that the i7 does not support n-vidia optimus switching graphics. You can look at Intel's website and neither the i7 740QM nor the i7 840QM have the graphic chips built into them. I think there are some dual core i7's not availible in the XPS 15 that support optimus but the two i7 quad core options for the new XPS 14,15 or 17 do not support optimus. I don't know a battery life estimate for the 15. Mine hasn't come yet.

i installed vista on my laptop and noticed that on a full charge i get about 3 hrs and 10 min out of the battery. on the same laptop, running xp media center 05, i get about 2 hrs and 10 min. vista does have a performance mode and a longer battery mode, which xp does not have. i didnt really like vista because it is not compatible with some of the software i love to use, so i am going to stick with xp until vista improves dramatically. what can i do to XP to have a longer battery life like in vista? is there some app or something? i want that hour of battery life back. thanks

Hi,

I recently bought a brand new Sony Vaio laptop and it stated that the battery life of this laptop is 3.5 hrs. Now since the battery is fully charged on my laptop it is telling me that I only have 2.50 hrs at a 100%? Anyone know why that is, or do I have to go back to the retaiiler and purchase a new battery ?. The laptop is covered under warrenty, since I only purchased it about 6 days ago.
