Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ battery: for those who don’t like charging

Batteries. They power all of our portable electronics and are of the utmost importance. Naturally, we all crave a powerful battery to keep our devices going. Tablets require even larger batteries to keep them going thanks to their big, beautiful screens. Generally, we don’t like to charge our tablet everyday. And while the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ has some flaws, we’re pleased to let you know that it has zero problems when it comes to the battery. In fact, it even excels.

The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ packs in a cylindrical 9,000mAh battery. The cylinder design allows for a bigger battery, giving the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ an estimated 18 hours of battery life. I’ll say this: I got nowhere near 18 hours of battery life. I got far over that. With light usage and max brightness, I was able to keep the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ running for five days.

Five. Whole. Days.

The Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ has better battery life than any mobile device I’ve ever tested. Even with the screen on full brightness, it’s pretty easy to get six, maybe even seven hours of screen-on time. In short, you’re going to get some of the best battery life out there. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t often have access to a charger, or just doesn’t like to charge their device very often. the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is the right tablet for you.

Naturally, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ takes a fair amount of time to charge, but that’s to be expected with such a large battery. The device gets warm while charging, but not uncomfortably so, and it certainly isn’t a problem.

Frankly, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ is the tablet to get if your only concern is battery life. It has flaws in other areas, but in battery alone, we can give the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ two thumbs up. It keeps you going for days, quite literally, and allows you to get the most out of your device before having to set it down to charge. On battery alone, the Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ takes the cake.

    pardon me, but didnt you say you kept it on max brightness and it lasted 5 days but a sentence later you said “Even with the screen on full brightness, it’s pretty easy to get six, maybe even seven hours of battery life”

      “With light usage”

      I didn’t phrase that quite well enough. I’ve changed it to say six or seven hours of screen-on time, which is what I was initially implying.

    Why are there so many articles on this one tablet? is this the hottest tablet available or something?

      Nah, that’s just how we do reviews, man.

      • www.phonewbie.com

        Actually most of the reviews are not like this. As a reader it’s annoying to come to the site looking for new articles everyday just to find articles on the same uninspiring product. Just my two cents as a loyal reader. Good day.

    Nice article.

    Battery life matters to me too. I can cope with just a day out of a phone but “cope” is the operative word – it actually sucks.

    I got onto the net-book thing as soon as Asus did the 10 inch ones. Mainly for portability for bike-commuting. I did not realise how transformative decent battery life is. There is something kind of radical about having something portable with utility that runs and runs and runs. It changes your thinking and expectations. My first Asus used to run 6 to 8 hours which meant a day or more of realistic use. My second one was 10 to 13 hours! That meant 24 hours of solid use. Ugly as sin and at 1.5kg (3.3lb), significantly heavier than the 11.6 ultrabook I went on to. That ultrabook only runs 2 to 3 hours though and I would trade style for battery again if it is an option.

    I’ve got an HTC m7 and it still impresses me with it’s svelte design. It slips into the pocket nicely so I accept the battery life because part of it’s utility is being small and light. But for tablets which are more likely to have sleeves or bags to bulk them out, I think it is sensible to offer the option. I’d buy one.
