So I bought a ThinkPad X1 Carbon 5th gen laptop with an i7 7500u CPU from a local buy and sell marketplace off someone. I'm not really familiar with how long a battery is supposed to last on a laptop, but this ThinkPad seems to drain very quickly.

I'm doing some work involving virtualization and I lost 42% battery in 1 hour and 15 minutes and the CPU usage has been fluctuating between 50-99% CPU utilisation.

On the Lenovo website this model of thinkpad is advertised as having up to 15 hours of battery life, and I get they exaggerate those numbers for marketing purposes, but surely there can't be this large of a discrepancy between the numbers?
