Since my fresh re-install of a Mint Mate 18.3 on my T430s, I notice that the ultrabay battery drains really fast.
My main battery (90,1% of capacity) drains at a normal speed, It can last 5hours with a light use, and ~3-4hours with moderate use (i'm going to switch to ssd soon).
My bay battery (model 43, 70,6% of capacity) last less than 1 hour. The problem is, when I was still using my old system (Mint KDE 18.2), this battery gave me ~2 or 2h30 of autonomy.
Do you think it's normal?
Tlp config file doesn't notice something about ultrabay battery (except tresholds). Do I need to set-up something somewhere? or calibrate?

After taking a look at powerstat, it's the same Wh than with my main battery, and the drain goes lower. It's a good point.
The ultra bay battery lasts around ~2h-2h30 with tlp and turboboost enabled, no cpu frequency blocked. With a really hard use it lasts ~1h30, with a charge capacity of 64%.
