Anyone can comment on the battery life for x395? Can it last more than 7 hours, with WiFi, running excel office, and play some music?
Depends on your display brightness, so far 5 -6 hours for me.

Can set from vantage battery threshold stop at 100%.

Usually I will keep it charged overnight.

Anyone know if it's ok to leave my laptop charging or should I plug out once fully charged. Does it make a difference to the longevity of the battery since the battery is non removable?

the battery threshold at Lenovo Vantage can automatically cutoff charging to the battery.
I set mine to charge when below 60% and stop at 80% leaving it plugged it and using it.

Based on what I read, it's not good for batteries to be at 100% all the time. And do not use it till really low %.
Optimum for battery is 40-60% range if you want to extend battery life.
Again, you can do your own readings and choose what to follow.
It's up to you whether you value your battery more or the experience you get from using your laptop.

oh ok. Thanks for the insight.

The below was quoted from a reddit post, might be helpful.

The main thing is the max charging threshold. The rule of thumb is ~70% will double the lifespan, and ~50% will double it further. You can go lower but you start to hit diminishing returns and it's not so practical...

It's fine to cycle all the way down to 5%, as there is a bit of juice left in the tank that is not user accessible. (the laptop will usually call 3.0V per cell as empty, for safety/longevity reasons which is pretty comfortable, they are usually tested down to 2.5V/cell)

Interrupting a charge is totally fine, and if you've set the max charging threshold then you can just leave the laptop plugged in while working.

Yes, the minimum does not matter. Only thing that matters is the max threshold should be about 70% for double lifespan.
Then again take it with a pinch of salt.
If 70% charge not enough to maintain your daily usage then I rather you up the max charge %

for those who still waiting for next year release of E-series, this is the last chance.
e14 and e15(new naming convention for Intel E series thinkpads) will only feature one ram slot.
