Court Dismisses Class Action over Lenovo Battery Life

A class action lawsuit over Lenovo's battery life has come to an end after nearly a year of motions. The class action suit, filed in February, alleged that Lenovo, which bases its PC business in Morrisville, misrepresented the battery life of its Yoga 2 Pro laptop. The lead plaintiff, Orlando Medeiros says in his complaint that Lenovo's website assured customers that the battery would last up to nine hours, but claims it 'generally provided only four to five, or at most, six hours of battery life on a full charge'. According to a statement put out by K&L Gates, the firm representing Lenovo, Medeiros had lauded the laptop on social media anyway. In the end, it didn't matter, according to the final decree of Leo Sorokin, the judge in Massachusetts hearing the case. As the judge points out in his ruling, Medeiros doesn't detail whether he put Lenovo on notice regarding a warranty, 'or that he gave Lenovo any time at all to cure the alleged breach'. Sorokin dismissed the case Jan. 27.

Among the list of new defendants are Greenliant Systems, Inc., Mouser Electronics, Inc., Apacer Technology, Inc., Apacer Memory America, Inc., Norcomp Incorporated, Lenovo Group Ltd., Lenovo (United States) Inc., Spansion, Inc., Cactus Technologies Ltd., Cactus USA, Harper & Two, Inc., and Acer America Corporation.
