The Lenovo Legion 5i 15 and battery life

As previously stated, the Lenovo Legion 5i 15's battery life is underwhelming. Depending on what you're using the laptop for and what setting your games and programs are running at, you'll only get anywhere between an hour and an hour-and-a-half out of a full charge. However, while this is disappointing, it's mitigated by the fact that the included 230W AC adapter can nearly fully recharge the battery in 30 minutes. This means that as long as there's an outlet nearby, you won't need to stop playing for long. Most buildings have plenty of outlets anyway, so finding one to plug into shouldn't be an issue.

While the Lenovo Legion 5i 15's battery life isn't the greatest, there are still plenty of other reasons to pick up the laptop. Featuring up to an RTX 2060 GPU, up to an Intel i7-10750H CPU, and 16GB of RAM, the device is very capable of delivering excellent mid-range performance on the latest games. Its FHD display can be outfitted with anywhere between 60 and 240Hz, and it looks great thanks to its strong color accuracy as well. Also, in terms of storage, you can get up to a whopping 1TB of SSD space. The device also supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 as well, which ensures you'll have the best connectivity for both internet as well as wireless peripherals.

When it comes to the physical side of things, the Lenovo Legion 5i 15 is awesome as well. It's only an inch thick and only weighs five pounds, which means that it will be easy to carry around with you no matter where you go. On top of that, the keyboard is very comfortable and responsive to use. Finally, the device comes with four USB-A ports, one USB-C port, an HDMI 2.0 port, and slots for ethernet and audio. These will ensure that you can connect any and all gaming peripherals that you want to use with the Lenovo Legion 5i 15.
