Best answer: The battery life on the Lenovo Chromebook C330 is advertised as lasting up to 10 hours, and in four months of use, I've managed to get an average of 8-11 hours of use on a single charge.

Battery to get you through the day and then some
The Lenovo Chromebook C330 is one of our favorite Chromebooks, with great performance at a great price, and a not insignificant portion of that performance is a battery that will not quit. To quote from my full review of the Lenovo Chromebook C330:
"Even with 2-3 hours of max-brightness writing in the afternoon Florida sun, the C330 always lasts me over 9 hours on a single charge — almost 12 hours some days — allowing me to edit long after the evening's fireworks have gone off."
Even if you keep the laptop on max brightness all the time — I don't know why you'd want that, but hey, to each their own — the C330 should last 5-7 hours depending on how intense of a workload you're cranking through. On days when I've kept to minimum brightness — because I'm a creature of darkness — I've had the C330 last over 12 hours, but usually, I land somewhere in the 8-11 range.
Lasting over 10 hours on a charge, light enough to carry every day, and packing plenty of space for downloads and offline content for work or play, this Chromebook has perks in all the right places.
