  • Capacity is the length of time you can run your system on a fully charged battery.
  • It is normal for all batteries to lose some capacity over time.
  • Each time you discharge and recharge your battery, you will lose a very small amount of this capacity.
  • You may also want to check for specific information on your system;
    • Example: some BIOS updates include power management enhancements.
  • Other systems have specific tools to help with battery life.
  • To find drivers and files for your system, go to ThinkPad software and device drive file matrix and select the link for your system.
