Yoga 910 battery charger in slow motion and battery drain

Q: Yoga 910 battery charger in slow motion and battery drain

I'm having problems with my 910 yoga. He's been carrying it for more than two days and it's only 44%. Unlike the other posts, where yoga is connected and does not carry my charges very slowly. Also when I remove the power cable the battery drains very fast.
1) I already updated the BIOS
2) I already unplugged and reinstalled the battery drives
I do not know what else to do.

I am a Yoga 700-14ISK user for 2 years. And I had encounter serveral issues with this laptop before (and the service center helped me to fix them) However, now there is an issue I just have now - my battery is draining fast like 1% lost per 2-3 min for light usage (browsing on Chrome or doing my schoolwork either on Microsoft Office or Google Drive) I suspected it was due to my battery wear level. However, as I monitored it, I realised it keep fluctuating (from 19.64% to 42.02%) until I re-calibrate which gives me 38.51% and then 38.71% after a charge to 60%. Is it possible the battery wear level can cause the quick drain in battery?  Is this battery wear level normal? I would also like to point out that I had the battery changed over a year ago and I normally used my laptop for schoolwork and gaming (occasionally now after realising the issue.) I am also going to have an internship (at least 6 months) from July so I am very worried that my laptop can't last long especially its battery. Hence, should I go to a Lenovo service center and request for a battery replacement? Please give me any possible reasons on why the laptop battery starts to drain fast and its battery wear level sharp increase, and also possible solutions for these issues. I would like to know more about it in order to sustain my laptop at least for a year.

Hi, I have an Yoga 900 that worked fine (mostly). However, now I have an annoying issue regarding the battery.  Going from 100% to about 76% could take about 2 hours, but... from 76% to 6% takes a minute. It doesnt downscale normally, but rather jumps immediately down to 6% and then warns me about low battery...  With this issue, the computer is completely useless without the powercord...so, its a bit useless as a laptop yes. Would really appreciate any help here!! Running Win 10 with the latest updates.

Hi tonijj , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Check if this help article applies to your case and verify both BIOS and audio versions. 
 
Manually allowing it to drain then charge it helps in some case other wise you can try steps discussed here on this discussion.

Hi! I have 4 years old Lenovo Yoga Ideapad 13.  The problems started couple weeks ago, when the computer wouldn't run or start up without being plugged in. I followed some other people's advice and got a new battery. It seemed to fix to problem for while. Now few weeks after the same problem stands with the new battery. It won't start or run, but when plugged in it says the battery is 100% and charging.   I tried checking if the charger isn't working, but it charges all fine on my other Yoga, which has the same charger model. So please note that this isn't the common problem that is seen here on the forums, that the battery doesnt charge. I'm pretty frustrated, as this problem persists even though I changed the battery. Anyone have ideas? I figured it could have something to do with the battery wire connecting battery to the motherboard, but there doesn't seem to be any defects or loose wires.  However, I tried taking off the battery connection wire when plugged in, and then I get the message "No battery detected" instead of the regular "100% Fully charged". Any help is appreciated.

Hi, Something really annoying started recently,I don't use my laptop every day, and latey iv'e noticed that the battery drains cempletely empty in a few days.I was using it a few days ago, when i shut it off (not hibernate), the battery was 100%, but today iv'e tried turning it on, and the battery is 0%, i had to connect it to the charger to be able to turn it on. Iv'e been experiencing it in the last month, before that it was ok, there were some updates recently notably the BIOS update and i wonder if that is the reason for this behaviour. I need to fix that asap - i doubt it is a hardware fault since the lapto is only 10 months old, and in continuos use the battery last 5-6 hours, the same as it was new. Lenovo support, I'm awaiting your reply that will solve my issue (already disabled "fast start" from power options but it doesnt seem to help) Thank you

I got my yoga 920 two months ago. Everything looks fine expect recent battery drain after shutdown. I shut down my laptop and after overnight I turn it on, it only shows 89% for most time and on time only 64%. I tried a lot of ways suggested online, such as turning off "always on usb", battery reset, changing settings in Intel Energy Management. But problem continues. Does anyone have any idea?

Hi guys, In February, I received my Yoga 710-14ikb and I was thrilled because of the advertised battery life and low weight. However, I have started noticing that 5 months in, my battery drains 10-15% (in 17 hours) when it's turned off. I have set the "what does the power button do" to shut down and the ''close the lid'' to do nothing. There is no heavy usage of the laptop, no downloading etc.In my previous laptop (ideapad 510), this happened as well and eventually progressed into losing ~50% in 48 hours. They ended up repairing it twice and taking it back in the end and this cost a lot of time.  Does anybody have any solutions for this problem?Kind regards,Maarten

Hi there, There are long threads about this topic and I reviewed them but I could not find a solution. I purchased an X1 yoga recently and I am experiencing battery drain during sleep, on modern standby periods. I ran a sleep study and according to the report, Nvme controller is active for most of the sleep period, there is also an unregistered device, which is also active during that time period.  I reviewed potential solutions, I updated all windows and nvme drivers from intel but it still drains 1% battery/hour during sleep.  I don't know what else I can do. Any suggestions? Thanks.

When in standby (or connected standby) the Yoga consumes quite a lot of battery.In just a few hours, the battery capacity was reduced by 10%.Because of intelligent hibernation, my PC does not run out of battery during the night, but then it makes standby pretty much useless. I've seen similar issues being discussed for the X1 Yoga at these forums, and I believe that a BIOS update was issued to fix the problem.Cannot seem to find a BIOS upgrade for the 920 that has a fix, though. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

Hi, I got a used Lenovo Yoga 2 11 (YB02496129), installed Windows 10 and swaped out the old hard drive for an ssd (of course installed all drivers for my device). When powered off, I lose up to 50% of charge while the notebook is turned off (not sleep or energy saving). The battery itself seems fine, because I can still use it for roughly 3-5 hours.As I thought that it is an Windows 10 issue (software based), I installed linux ubuntu 18.04. Same result, 33% battery drain overnight. What I tried:- reading through other forum posts with the same problem- installing/deinstalling Lenovo Vantage (updated my bios and drivers)- changed the power off button behavior (shutdown instead of energy saving)- turning of the device by holding the powerbutton for 10 seconds- changed the ssd (so I basicly got my windows 10 ssd out and insterted a fresh one for ubuntu)- installed linux ubuntu 18.04 I cant use a notebook that overnight loses all of its charge for obvious reasons. Do you have any sugesstions? Seems like its a known problem, maybe someone solved it already.

Hi,
 
It appears based on the below post that Lenovo fixed this problem on X380 Yoga.  Can this be released for X1 Yoga 3rd generation?
 
https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X380-Yoga-High-battery-drain-when-off-again/t...
 
I have already done the below
 
- Windows Quick Start is off 
- USB-power when off is off
- Wake-On-LAN or USB-C is off
- BIOS updated to N25ET35W 1.21
- I have uploaded BIOS settings to default
- Disabled thunderbolt
- run battery guage reset twice
 
Battery drain is not as bad as the other person on the X380 but I still lose after making all the above changes 1-3% overnight.  Despite what support says I do not believe that this should be considered normal.  This has never happened on any of my other thinkpads except for my TP25 which was fixed after disabling fast start up.

I am yet to make an accurate observation but it certainly feels like I come back to the laptop in a few hours and the battery remaining is much lower than I remember.Anyone else experiencing this? I have already disabled Always On USB and have nothing plugged in to the USB ports except for the Active Pen 2 holder. Thanks!

Hello my fellow ThinkPad friends, I know that there are already a couple of threads out there concerning high battery drain when the device is completely shut down, but none for the X380 Yoga yet. In some cases (E-Series ThinkPads), a BIOS-Update was released to solve the problem. I would kindly like to ask the Lenovo team to try and figure out whether the same can be accomplished for the X380 Yoga.  When my device is shut down, it usually drains 10-15% a day, which cannot be a regular thing. Of course, I have tried all the usual stuff: - Windows Quick Start is off - USB-power when off is off- Wake-On-LAN or USB-C is off- BIOS updated to R0SET29W 1.13 If you have any other ideas, feel free to post them. Otherwise, I would really appreciate for a BIOS update that might adress the issue. It is kind of annoying charging your device for the weekend knowing that by the next day, you will already have lost 1 to 2 hours of runtime. Best wishes,Manuel

I bought my Yoga 13 (type 20175) brand new in 2014.  It shipped with Windows 8, 128GB, 4GB, if I recall correctly.  I had a license for W8 Pro that I used and there was a free 8.1 upgrade that I completed not long after purchase. Upgrades over the last (almost) 3 years have been boosting it to 8GB of ram, installing a Samsung SSD 850 EVO (250GB), Windows 10 (Pro), and now a battery. Sometime in 2015, I started noticing that if I didn't use the laptop and left it off for 2 or 3 days, the battery would completely discharge to 0%.  I chalked it up to age, and could still get several hours of moderate use in a day, so it wasn't a priority.  Finally, I bit the bullet and bought a brand new battery and put it in last week. Nothing changed.  I still have the same problem. In retrospect, it may have coincided with the installation of Windows 10.  Below is a further description of the problem and things I have tried.   PROBLEM:When shutting down, the battery loses an average of 2.5% per HOUR. (i.e. after 10 hours, it goes from 100% to 75%)This is consistent whether I use the Windows Start menu, the power button, or a command prompt (shutdown /s /f /t 0) to turn it off.  By the way, putting it in hibernate burns at the same rate. When putting the laptop to sleep, the battery loses only about 0.75% per HOUR (i.e. after 10 hours, it goes from 100% to 92%).  This occurs regardless of how I put it to sleep...

Battery drain in sleep mode is excessive compared to other Windows laptops. Leaving the office with a full charge, not powering on the unit at home, I come in the next day and the battery is 89%. Same scenario over a weekend - Leave the office with 100% charge, come in Monday morning, having not used the laptop and the battery is 78%. This has nothing to do with the fancy OLED or anything - it wasn't turned on. Hope this can be addressed in a BIOS update. I really want to love this laptop but the short battery life compared to advertised specs and the excessive battery drain while sleeping leave me with mixed feelings.

Hi amote,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Battery draiining reports are also visible on other OEM forums as well and most likely related to similar features offered by Windows 10. Such also applies to different model of different macnufacturers as well.
 
Disabling fast start as discussed here would be a good step to try first.
 
Our forums are peer to peer community discussion group but Tech support (although maybe limited to their own scope of support) also utilizes the discussions we have for investigation of issues.

I have had this X1 Yoga 3rd Generation laptop since May. Sometime in July the battery will get drained at an excessive rate while the laptop is sleeping. I believe it started to happen after some software/driver/bios update around that time. Overnight it would go from 100% charged to 10% (and stops at 10% becaues hibernation kicks in). See below some images for the SleepStudy that PowerCfg.exe reports.   This seems to be the same or a very similar issue to the one reported here for the X1 Carbon that it is still unresolved:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-6th-Gen-Battery-drain-in-sleep/m-p/... I have been installing any new updates posted on System Update hoping for this to magically get fixed by one of those updates, but so far it hasn't happened. I'm starting to switch from a happy ThinkPad user that would recommend my laptop to colleagues and friends, to one that may start telling them to stay away from them.

Hi,I recently purchased Thinkpad X1 yoga (1 Gen) machine with 16Gb Ram, 512GB SSD & WQHD IPS (Not even OLED) display with windows 10 pro 64 bit OS.My laptop battery is draining fast and only last for 4 to 5 hours with normal browsing & usage with 60-75% brightness (even reducing it to 50% doesn't give much improvement) and in Power save mode. As per Lenovo it should last for 9 to 11 hours but in reality it is no where near to it. I had also looked at similar issues that has been raised in this forum by other users as well. But I strongly feel that a top brand like Lenovo/Thinkpad doesn't cheat customers by giving false promises for the battery life of  9 to 11 hours without their internal testing, also I feel they would have not be claiming this (9 to 11 hrs) battery life by keeping their screen brightness to dark i.e. less than 50% or 25%. So i thought i could dig deeper to find out the problem. After my initial analysis using powercfg.exe command tool for sleepstudy, the report (i.e. https://ibb.co/hzob7F) shows me some a Ghost application called "Unknown [None]" which comsumes more power and I guess this is the culprit that cases the battery to drain faster. Looks like this Ghost appid takes around 60% of the power compared with all the other appid.  But not sure how to identify this Ghost appid. I have also posted my query in Microsoft forum but yet to get an reply.https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-othe...

I bought the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen during the week of Thanksgiving 2018.  I watched a ton of reviews showing the battery getting anywhere from 7-9 hrs of life even though it specs say 15 hours.  7-9 is still acceptable for me but my battery only gets ~2-3 hours of life.  This isn't even the worse part. Like many others my laptop suffers from the dreaded battery drain but seems worse than others.  I seem to not even be able to leave it without the A/C adapter plugged in at night or it will be below 40% by the morning. I have tried many of the "hacks" suggested.  Turned the USB always on OFF and turned the Thunderbolt 3 active at boot up OFF.Neither of those made any difference.  All my Windows power/battery settings (close lid, on power, on battery, etc.) are set to StandBy. I thought about doing a battery gauge reset but have seen horror stories that batteries are screwed up after doing that. Any suggestions for very low battery life relative to specs? excessive battery drain?  TIA,S104S

Hello. I have purchased the Lenovo Yoga 170-14IKB with 1080p touchscreen, 8gb RAM and i5-7200U.Since it is a bit older, and I realized I need more RAM for my school projects and assignments, I decided to go for a "Crucial SO-DIMM 16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2400MHz CL17 Dual Ranked" memory, since on the Crucial's website it was stated that this Yoga supports that RAM. So I clicked purchace, got the RAM, upgraded, and suddenly my Yoga is warm when in sleep. It also draws so much power in sleep in Windows 10, that it discharges in a few hours when still in sleep. Before the upgrade, the Yoga lasted a week or two in sleep mode. Now, only a few hours. Is there any way to solve this issue? I was considering a BIOS upgrade might help, but I'm running the lates bios 2XCN38WW (V2.12).Are you aware of this issue? Is anyone else having this issue? Can I provide you with any more information to help me solve this problem?

I have an XPS 9550 6th Gen running Windows 10 (Just over 1 year, out of warranty).
The issue is when the charge plug is plugged in and hovering over the battery icon it says that battery is charging.  However the battery is not charging but discharging until the laptop switches off.  The only way for the battery to charge again is to deplete the battery until the laptop is unresponsive when the power button is pushed to switch lap top on.  Once there is no residual power in the battery it will start charging again to 100% after which the cycle repeats, discharge.
Things I have tried.
Latest Bios update - no change
Another A/C charger - worked ok for a few days
Replaced battery - no change
Bios settings - reset to default (info related to battery and A/C charge reports all good)
F12 - Dell diagnostics, reports all good
When Battery is disconnected the laptop works normally
The laptop charge socket seems tight and secure
I have searched the internet exhaustively but have not found this same issue reported.  The only feasible way I can use the laptop is to disconnect the battery.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I would also like to disable the battery instead of having to open it up to disconnect, is this possible?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

Define "decline." What percentage to what percentage. If it's 100-95, that's by design. If it's around 60, you may have battery conservation mode engaged. At least I THINK that's available on the 720.  If you're down to 20% and it's not charging, then there's a problem.

When I plug the charger in the message on the battery icon on the bottom toolbar reads as "73%, plugged in, not charging". Obviously the laptop is recognising the charger (i.e "plugged in") but it is not allowing the battery to charge.
I have installed every update on the computer and I have recently searched for any outstanding BIOS updates. The system seems to suggest there is a BIOS update to be installed yet when I try to install it the system says that it cannot detect a charger, and won't complete the update, or it won't complete the update without a charger plugged in in the first place. It's a no-win situation. The computer and charger are only 14 months old so this is very unsatisfactory. When I remove the battery the computer operates on AC power only, so again the charger is working, it simply won't charge the battery and therefore once the battery runs down to 0, which it will eventually, I will be limited to using AC power only.
If I restart the laptop with the charger plugged in it diverts me to a warning page saying that the charger is not recognised and I am given the option to go to the BIOS setup, go to diagnostics or to continue. If I choose "continue" it simply returns me to this warning page every time so the only way to power up the laptop is to do so with the AC charger out, and to then plug it in once the system has started so that the battery doesn't drain completely.
Please help.

If neither the new adapter nor the DC jack solves the problem, you've got a bad charge circuit - replace the mainboard.

I am struggling with this for a while now. In Hungary we basically have no Lenovo support. My Yoga 2 is considered old but still a very-very good laptop. The Energy Manager complains that the battery is old and I can see it in its performance as well unfortunately. I tried several sellers on Ebay but I keep getting some crappy quality, usually old, refurbished like (but it does not work at all) batteries. I want a real ORIGINAL Lenovo battery that is BRAND NEW (not manufactured in 2014), that is a real stuff, not just a sticker on the outside, crap in the inside. Could you please help me?

Hi.I bought the Yoga 520 exactly last year. The battery is dying pretty quickly I am now left with 14,500 mWh which is terribly disappointing.I can now only get about an hour of battery. The concerning things is that, everyday, the battery sheds about 300 mWh.Where can I possibly purchase a battery replacement for my unit?I have included the battery report in this post.

Hi everyone! Is it ppossible to buy NEW battery form my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro 13 Notebook? It uses the L12M4P21. I looked at many places but all the batteries are made in 2003 or 2004. As I know they loose their performance if they sit on the shelf for many years... Is it possible to find really newly made original Lenovo battery for my laptop?

A:I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro 13, I need a new battery... but NEW, not battery that was made in 2004!

Hi Moksa,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It may be hard to say as because of the age of the model but you can try calling in EMEA parts sales desk for your region (Hungary 30 722-37-91). On the battery sticker is also the battery manufacturer which you can try but I am not as optimistic for newer manufactured battery. 
 
I would say that as long as they provide the standard battery one year warranty, then it would be a good option to go.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

Hi, I'm having a strange issue with my P50 (FHD, Xeon, M2000M) where after using external displays, the system will drain an extraordinary amount of power. I documented this previously with no resolution, but have additional details regarding the situation. During regular idle, I usually have around 6-7W of power drain. However, after using external displays (which I use every day), the computer can no longer idle at 6-7W, but idles at 14-16W. I have ensured that the dGPU has been deactivated and that there are no runaway processes eating up network, CPU, graphics, or disk usage. The only way to return to 6-7W power usage is to restart the system. Upon further investigation, when the high power usage issue occurs, the CPU can no longer enter C8 state (higher power savings) and instead can only C6 as the highest power saving state. Additionally, when the dGPU is active, the CPU cannot enter C8 state, so I assume that after unplugging my displays an issue is causing the system to remain unable to enter C8 state.  I would appreciate if Lenovo Staff could respond. I'm unsure if this is a firmware issue or something wrong with my system, but I've had this issue since last August and my warranty end date is approaching.

hi,I Recently bought a new lenovo s41-70 laptop that came with windows 10.It seems that the battery has a problem,. When the computer goes to sleep, the battery still drains. I charge it to 100% before going to sleep, and when i wake up, the battery is left with only 50%. Even when the computer is shutdown, the battery continues to drain.In the control panel, in power options, it is configured to go to sleep when i close the lid and after 20 min of inactivity. fast startup is disabled.I read that maybe the intel management engine interface might be the problem, it is now version 11.0.0.1181.Just upgraded bios to version BDCN63WW from version BDCN61WW.If anyone has an idea how to fix the problem please let me know.Thanks

When my battery is less than half full, it will only charge the battery when I turn off the lab top. If I am using the labtop, the battery drains it down to almost nothing despite being plugged in. I have the battery icon running, and it seems that it constantly alternates between "plug in" and "battery usage," but will not stay as plugged in permanently.

I checked the cords and power adapter (to see if it's truly plugged in) and tested different wall connection, but got the same result each time. Is it my battery or is it because of what I am running on the labtop, which requires a lot of power? I usually have 2 or 3 programs running at the same time, including wireless.

is there any "fix" for this problem or do I have to buy a new battery? It's only been 1 1/2 yr.
 

A:Battery drain

Maybe someone else knows something else to do but in general I would say you need a new battery. They do reach that point and a year and a half isn't that uncommon for a laptop battery to fail.
You probably all ready know it's the battery it's just a matter of having to purchase another one when it seems like they should run longer than they do. Luck Jazz

I have an HP HDX18t with Vista 64-bit and Windows 7 64-Bit as dual boot. Starting yesterday, when I boot into Windows 7, I get a message from my battery indicator reading, "Fullu Charged" Consider replacing battery. The icon has a red xo where the batter is. When I unplug the laptop, the battery drains to empty within 5 minutes. This doesnt happen when I boot into Vista. I've had Windows 7 Buld 7100 since the release date and have had no problem. Can anyone offer any advice, as most of my programs are under the Windows 7 OS.

Thanks

A:Battery Drain

Your battery is dieing. How long has it been since you replaced the battery? Usually when the battery drains almost to nothing in less then five minutes, it means its life is coming to an end and is no longer able to hold a charge.

0I solved my previous battery question on my own (without changing any settings FYI). But, now I have a new issue, the battery is draining when the computer is off. Yesterday afternoon I turned it on and even though it was charged to 100% the night before, it was down to 66%. I thought perhaps I forgot to shut down completely, so, last night I made sure everything was off. Today on turn it on it was down to 85%. Thoughts?? It totally defeats the purpose of having a laptop if I'm going to be chained to the AC even when I haven't been using the laptop.
