Q: Problem with z410 - battery draining immediately

HiI have been using Z410 since almost 1 year now (warrenty expired) but since couple of days I can notice that in 2 mins of removing the power adaptor from the laptop, it just shutdowns. Looking into the forum I can understand that the battery is not functioning correctly however the power manager shows battery as normal. I did the gauge reset also. issue still presisst,Is replacing the battery only option in this case?

Hi,Have been using Ideapad Z410 from past 6 months.  From past week the Laptop shuts down without warning, and the battery level is at 99% or 100%.  Only when the unit shutsdown, and when I start up again, that the battery indicator starts from 0 and goes to 99% or 100% and stays there.  I have also doen the Battery Meter Reset, but of no benefit.What is the problem, and what should I do.Should I claim under warranty ?

A:Idepad Z410 battery always at 99% or 100%

I wouldn't expect much of an answer from them, the same happens to the Z510 I have and it happens to the Z500 models before it, they'll tell you to send it in under warranty but that will not solve the problem as it will happen again after a few months and I need the laptop for work, I didn't buy it so that after half a year I would have to send it away for 2-3 weeks, I bought the thing because it is needed here. They need a battery firmware update but that too is too hard for them to do. These problems are being experienced by people worldwide and I am seriously considering reporting them to watchdog here in the UK. They should not be shipping laptops that have known issues and then offer no fix.

I have to replace the battery in my Ideapad Z410.  Lenovo customer service tells me to contact product support, but my machine is out of warranty.  The model number on the back of my computer is 20292. I have tried entering my model# on the Lenovo website, so I can find a compatible replacement, and I get a message that they have no info for my model number. I have tried major retailers, and their customer support cannot tell me what is compatible. I just want to buy a %$#@ compatible battery, and it seems like no one can tell me what will be compatible.  Help! Thanks.

Hi Everyone,  So after a few months of use with my z410 I decided to take the Energy Manager's (program) advice and preform the suggested Battery Guage Reset.  After the reset I have had a terrible experience. The z410 will at times not boot up on battery alone, and when I plug the charger in it will tell me the battery is dead, but shorlty after it everything is running it will tell me i have 100% battery. Now - if I were then to "pull the plug" the computer will act normally and get great battery perfromance...HOWEVER - if I plug ghe charger back in, the battery drops back down to 0%. I don't know what to do - please help...I can't win right now with this computer. I love it, but can't trust it.  Please advise - please, and thank you!

Once the scren powers up , Stay on that screen and let the computer overnight on that screen until it turn itself off because of power loss in battery.
 
Now plug the AC back and charge it till 100%

I have had my Lenovo IdeaPad Z410 since around January, and I have just recently expierienced the problem of the battery dropping to zero. What happens is my battery will be draining at a normal pace then all of a sudden my laptop will shut down and will not go back on as it thinks the battery is dead. If it is plugged when this happens then the orange battery low light will begin flashing and the message goes from saying "Fully charged (100%)" to "1% remaining (plugged in, charging)". This is quite annoying as I cannot take my laptop anywhere without fear of it randomly dying on me. I would assume I wouldn't need a new battery after only having the laptop for a few months. Also, if you are not familiar with this model, the battery is built in internally so I cannot try removing it and putting it back in myself. Any advice would be appreciated; I'd rather not deal with Lenovo's customer support unless I absolutely have to.

A:Lenovo IdeaPad Z410 Battery Suddenly Drops From 100% to 0%

hi LordMothim,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Based from your findings, it's possible that:
- the battery circuit inside is not working to unload the charge, or
- one of the battery cells have already reached its life span
- the chip that handles how the battery gets charge/discharge and checks the charge level of each battery cell (both are controlled by a firmware) is malfunctioning.
 
Batteries degrade overtime due to heat and daily use. If you're still under warranty, I recommend you contact lenovo and report the issue as you most likely need a replacement battery.

Hi, I have had this Z50 for just over 1 year,  However over the past 3-4 months, I have noticed that the battery drains very quickly.  When I take it to meeings for example (they last 2 - 3 hours), I will start with a full battery and then after about an hour and a half the battery is dead.At the meeting all I am running is Microsoft word and excel, and I have thunderbird open.  My wi-fi is turned off at meetings (as there is no wi - fi at  the location), blue tooth is switched off.An example is at a meeting last night after an hour it told me my battery was 100% when the meeting started, an hour later it was down to 26% and then within seconds it dropped to 6% told me battery was too low and shut down. Any help would be appreciated, as it is not good to have your lapptop shut down halfway through a meeting! Thanks in advance.

I have the brand new Spectre x360 and I keep it plugged in all day while using it, then every night I turn it off, and unplug it. At that point it had 100% charge. When I turn it back on in the morning, I notice that the battery has drained, usually down to around 80-90%. What is draining it? I tried turning off Windows "fast startup", but that did not change anything.  I do have a Logitech USB receiver for my mouse and keyboard plugged into the standard USB port, could it be that? Perhaps the HP "sleep and charge" feature is letting that thing draw power overnight? If so, is there a way to disable that feature? Or, perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I have the laptop in tablet mode, on a stand.  Maybe the camera/infrared on the front are active somehow? I also usually leave cord plugged into the USB Type-C ports, 1 for the power cord and 1 for a monitor, but I always have them unplugged from both the wall and the monitor, so I don't think it can be those. Any thoughts would be appreciated...in the meantime I'll try to test it tonight, by unplugging the USB receiver and/or closing the laptop, to see if that changes anything...

Hi,

All of a sudden my laptop battery seems to be draining very quickly.

From fully charged to dead in 20-30 mins. It also seems to charge 'fully' in a very short time.

Is there some sort of process running things down or is the battery just too old and worn out?

Im running Windows 10 64 bit. Toshiba Satellite L775.

I did the attached battery diagnostic via commad prompt if this helps...

Any advice, much appreciated.

Thanks

The report says the battery charges to about 18% of it's capacity when new, so it's nearly worn out. This is consistent with the behaviour you mentioned. Unfortunately the only cure is a new battery.

Hi, 
I have a dell Inspiron 5559 Core i7 6500U 2.5GHz laptop. I lost my dell original charger then I bought a charger from a local store. I'm from Sri Lanka and unfortunately there is no Dell Store here. So many local retailers are saying that "WE ARE THE OFFICIAL DELL PARTNERS" but I believe none of them are authorised dealers. The reason I said that is that's why I bought the charger from a local store.

That salesman ensure this is the correct charger for my system but after few weeks I realise my battery life is decreasing faster than before. Very recently I have replaced my Ram with Kingston HyperX 16GB kit. (8GB Ram came with the system) I noticed that battery draining was after this Ram replacement. I'm not sure which one is the reason for battery draining. But Dell Power Management application shows " Battery Status: fair" .. 
My Question is what should I do? As I said there is no original part distributor in Sri Lanka as far as I know. I have checked the Dell official website but it says they have been discontinued supplying the relevant battery module which is suits for my laptop.
1. Is there any way I can purchase a one in online?
2. Even if I bought a new battery would that charger will effect in a negative way for the new battery as well?

Hi all,
I have a question about a little problem im having with my laptop. It is that somtimes when i am on A/C power, the computer will stop charging my battery when not full and drain it down without re charging it. I know this sounds strange but it would happen. For instance i could be off of A/C for a while doing somthing where the pc is running on battery and the system would run fine. Then i would reconnect and the system appears normal, it would start charging up. Then without warning, the system will stop charging. It does recognize A/C power flowing to it as the light for A/C connection is lit but the amber lamp indicating the charging battery would go out. In windows it would say it is fully charged on the sidebar utility and if i hover the battery icon it would say that the computer is plugged in but not charging. This would typically happen after running it by entering and resuming from hibernate for a while. The strange part is that if the pc is off or not in windows it would charge up fine. Usually that is how i need to let it charge again as a reboot would set things straight. Also i beleive when i put it in standby it starts the problem as well but i am not sure. I would like to know whether it is windows acting up on my pc or if my battery is just going south.

Hi guys! Just recently got a Surface Pro 3 from eBay (Mint condition). It doesn't have more than 24 hours with me. Today I decided to test it for real.

To my surprise, it's been only an hour and a half and the Surface already dropped to 36%. I have done all sorts of analysis but can't find the real culprit... Is it a failing battery, then?

Cycle count is high, but nothing to worry about. According to the Surface Pro team:

What is the typical battery life (cycles) for a Surface Pro 3? - Windows Central Forums







?The batteries on our Surface products are designed with some of the highest charge cycles for consumer electronic devices. This means that the battery can get charged daily (5 days a week) for over 4.5 years and still maintain 80% capacity.? So you should be good to go for a very long time.



There shouldn't be a problem with the number of cycles. In fact, if we do the math:

(261 days per year @ 5 days per week) * 4.5 = 1,174.5 cycles for 80%.

A:Failing battery or draining issues?

If it has only been used for 24hrs why does it have 370 cycles for the battery?

A:Netbook Battery Draining Fast

 Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time.  My laptop is 2.5 years old, and I just started getting a notice that it now only has 40% of its original ability to hold a charge.  Windows 7 has the ability to do this I learned.  I just timed it last night, and after an hour even it was down to something like 23%.  If your netbook's over 2 years old, what you're seeing is par for the course.  I checked prices for mine and they vary all over the place with Amazon having them as low as $20, Micro Center having them for around $50, and Toshiba (my laptop's brand) for $75.  I'm sure the Toshiba ones are good, but I'm sure giving serious consideration to one of those Amazon ones that're so much cheaper.  I'm still researching this one.
