Is there an active test I can run (on Linux) to determine if my battery is genuine/new?
I can get a diagnostic easily enough but what I'd be interested in is a test I can run myself to get a current benchmark for my battery.
The official Lenovo specs for my machine claimed 10-ish hrs of active usage (I know, way overblown) but I haven't been able to find anything for standby life. Were there benchmarks for standby released for this machine?

With laptops booting up so quick nowadays, why waste valuable battery charge using stand-by?
Are those few seconds that you might save so important?

For me, battery life is so good in standby now-a-days, there is no need to fully shut it down.
10-12% per day is basically normal. Thats about the same I get on my Yoga.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
