Q: Lenovo Companion on T470 battery charge thresholds missing ?

Since my last update of the Lenovo Companion on my T470 I have lost the ability to modify my battery's charge thresholds. Is there a way for me to get access to this setting again ? This feature allow me to increase my battery's lifespan (https://support.lenovo.com/fr/fr/solutions/ht078208) I have tried applying the following method in my registry settings, but it's not always working : https://www.lenardgunda.com/thinkpad-battery-charging-thresholds/ I also appreciated being able to visualize the battery comsumption and number of cycles in lenovo settings but seem to have lost the ability to visualize this information too

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My original image had the Levovo apps installed but I had to reload Win10 from scratch for a non-important reason for this discussion. I am trying to find the settings and perhaps the download driver or app that will allow me to do that.  I think that ThinkVantage is now depricated.  Anyone know how to get to those settings as of Apr-2019?

I'm having an issue where custom battery charge thresholds aren't being respected on my E5550 when I plug my laptop into AC power.
Steps to replicate:
Using Dell Command | Power Manager, set custom battery settings such that the battery will start charging at 80% and stop charging at 90%.
Unplug from AC power.
Discharge the battery to anywhere below 90% but not below 80%.
Plug-in to AC power.
Result:
The battery will charge when the laptop is connected to AC power despite the battery charge state being above the custom 'start charge' point of 80%.
Desired outcome:
The battery should not charge unless it is is below the custom 'start charge' point.

Using V 2.1.1 of Power Manager and the A13 (latest) BIOS.
This looks like a bug in the battery charger firmware to me. Anyone else?

Hi, Got a brand new Lenovo T470, i7 with 16 GB RAM so not the slowest one. Now I had to re-install it because it was superslow from the day of the delivery. After re-installation it was superfast again until I installed Lenovo Companio from the Window store and updated all drivers from Lenovo. Then it became really sluggish, sometimes keyboard inputs weren't even detected and missed, that slow. Funny thing is though, there is zero cpu/mem/disk load. You can't see any load at all but still it's unworkable. I then reinstalled it again, this time no Lenovo Companion and just drivers from Windows Update and it was flying, really really fast. Then I installed companion again and boom, dead slow again. Unusable. So re-installed again and said goodbye to companion and/or Lenovo drivers, just using the ones from Microsoft. I did update to the latest firmware but it made no difference. It's just so much faster without the Lenovo stuff, I can't believe it. Any idea what might cause this?

Hi there, I'm using a Thinkpad T470. The detachable battery of my device is not charging anymore. In the battery overview, it shows 0 % charge while the main battery is fully charged. This leads to a total charge of 60%. Also, the battery light next to where the ac cable is plugged in does not light up when the device has reached 60% charge.

I have a T440s which I bought in July 2014. It is out of warranty. Lenovo companion reports my "primary" battery is "BAD" but says absolutey nothing else even though it reports a full charge. In fact the lenovo battery icon in the corner of my display shows battery is green and 100%. I'd like to understand whether this battery is bad in the sense that it should be removed from the computer immediately, or whether it has detected that it is no longer holding a full charge and could be left there. I am almost always at the desktop in a docking station so I don't need the full charge. I don't understand why all they report is "Bad". Any suggestions as to how I might find more or if it is just reporting lower capacity and nothing more? Also, it was kind of confusing which battery they meant when they said "primary" is bad. I could see an argument that either is the primary battery. Better to have used the terms integrated and removable. I removed the removable battery and reran the test to determine the primary battery is actually the integrated battery. I think the service person said the opposite. The lenovo companion page that reports the battery is BAD has a link for more information and it goes to a general lenovo webpage that has nothing to do with support. They are trying to get me to apply for a lenovo credit card I think. Its so disgraceful how they dropped the ball on this one. Alex

Dear Lenovo Community, I recently replaced my t470's external battery pack. However, the new battery pack does not sit flush/snug in the battery tray. It has a slight wiggle/play of about 1mm-2mm. The battery charges normally and there is no loose connection at the contact points. I wanted to check with anyone here if they faced similar quirks? My concern is: the wiggle/play should not get to the point where the battery loses connection with the laptop. Thanks in advance.

As owners of the T470-T480 models know, the battery discharge method is a major drawback for people who use their laptops outside of the office. Instead of discharging the easily replaceable external battery first, the system frequently discharges the internal -- and very difficult to replace, at considerably more expense -- battery first. The setup is also problematic because people who want to do hot swaps of the external battery may discover that they don't have sufficient charge in the internal one to do this successfully. In several threads in this forum, people (including me) have asked again and again for a user setting in the BIOS that will let us force discharging of the external battery first. As far as I can tell, Lenovo has ignored these requests.  At the very least, please answer the question. If the answer is no, kindly explain the logic behind refusing to make a customer-friendly change. I have bought a new Lenovo laptop every year for a long time now. Whether Lenovo listens to its customers on what should be an extremely simply fix will help determine whether I move to another vendor.

Okay so I have a 6 month old G51-35 Laptop that I've been using for gaming. Then earlier this morning when I was playing, the battery went down to 25%. I plugged it in and it didn't charge. I wondered why, and then I thought the power in the outlet was just not flowing so I'll just plug it into a different one later, and as soon as it hit 10% I panicked. I kept searching up solutions, but nothing popped up. So I then told my brother, by the time the laptop was at 1%, and he did some tests on the laptop. A couple hours later he told me that he doesn't know what the problem is, and so I started really freaking out. I searched up the prices for a new battery pack, but there wasn't anything for the g51-35. I then looked at the laptop prices, and it was a whole load of bull because the laptop itself cost $559. My parents would kill me if they found out, but I don't know what to do next. I think the laptop is overheated, but I don't have the tools to be able to clean it. Please help. Thanks.

Hi guys,  My battery is no longer going above three percent when plugged in. I have a lenovo y40, the warranty just expired last month, and lenovo is not really helping. I'm very frustrated. Everything was fine, until I turned my computer on this morning and realized it wasn't storing power. After reading around on the internet I determined a few things. A) The battery itself is fine, I ran a battery report... and it shows a sudden drop from 97% to 0% to 2%, and then back to 100% in a matter of minutes. Battery Log   < Click to see my log B) I think the issue is primarily a software one, becuase when I disable microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery in device manager my computer still runs for hours at 0% without being plugged in. Anyone else have this issue or know a solution? I'm a college student and I need this laptop to work on the fly for me. It's barely been over a year, and im already having issues.... someone help I can't afford a new lp!!!!

A:Lenovo Y40 Battery wont charge.

In response to customer reports of unexpected battery gauge behavior on Y40-70 and Y40-80 laptops, Lenovo determined the battery gauge software is performing as expected. The unusual gauge results being reported are a reflection of the battery reaching end of life.
 
Lenovo has released a Service TIP to assist customers with obtaining battery replacements under warranty, or if out of warranty, to find a replacement battery from Lenovo-approved vendors. The Service TIP can be found here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/sf16-I0023
 
The part numbers for Y40-70/80 batteries are:
Y40 SP/A L13M4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500248
Y40 LG L13L4P01 7.4V48Wh 4cell bty (Y40-70/Y40-80) 121500249 substitute part 121500251

To determine which battery came with your Y40 notebook, instructions for removing the bottom cover can be found in the Hardware Maintenance Manual pdf here. An alternate to opening your system (which does not void warranty) is to search for batteries using the model/product number located on the bottom cover.

Hey Lenovo Forum:
 
I'm having a battery charging problem that seems slightly different from any on this forum so far. I just acquired a T430 running Windows 7 (64-bit) like a charm. After a few issues with the audio drivers, everything has been running smoothly. 
 
Abruptly, yesterday, when I plugged it into the wall socket (the same socket that it had sucessfully charged on earlier) it failed to charge. Thinking it was the outlet, I tested it. The outlet and adapter are both working fine (the adapter powers the computer no problem with the battery removed from the system). The lock switch on the battery is in the propper position (i've tried both). The battery is not overheated (it's cool to the touch). I tried removing everything and holding the power button (apparently that discharges some built up charge in the system) then reconnecting the battery and AC adapter, nothing. 
 
I just downloaded the power manager which (when the laptop is, in fact, running off of AC power (the battery charge indicator hasn't draining in hours of continuous use) reads:

I bought a new battery for my X140e Laptop. It fits perfectly, and the computer runs on the new battery. But it will not charge. At the moment the meter indicates "37% available (plugged in, not charging). " Have scoured the Internet, tried various fixes, including shutting the laptop down, taking out the battery, holding the off button down for 10 - 30 seconds, still no joy. I also often get "The battery installed is not supported by the system and will not charge." But it always boots (Windows 7) and runs fine, except it just won't charge the battery.  I confess, it's an aftermarket battery, not a Lenovo battery. But how can that company stay in business if their batteries never work? Any advice warmly welcomed!  Cheers, Jim

Dear Sir  Welcome to Lenovo Community first of all lets do small troubleshooting steps, if its working ok if no so you have to deliver your device to the Service center to replace the battery if it still under warranty. ( find the list of service center link at the end of the message )if you do not have the power manager or power management you can download it from the below link:http://support.lenovo.com/eg/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Y-Series-laptops/Y40-80/downloa...after installing you have an option inside called battery gauge reset, you have to make it night when u do not use the laptop cause this operation will take more than 6 hours to full charge the battery then difull charge then full charge again to refresh your battery, after you do that try your machine, if the battery still drains fast so you can visit the nearest service center to your place. https://support.lenovo.com/eg/en/contactus/supportphonelist Best Of Luck

Hi,

I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.

Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.

So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.

What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?

Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

check the warranty is still active, as thats one route you could take with a relatively new laptop.

also, try uninstalling the energy management and restart the system and check for the issue. also try uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI from the device manager and restart the system and check for the issue. for more info on this action see this thread in the link:

I have bought this Lenovo laptop some months ago, but I still haven't figured out a way to change the charge for my battery from 59% to 100% in Ubuntu. I know that is possible by installing the Lenovo power management utility on Windows, but unfortunately, that would require me to wipe my system, install Windows, and then reinstall my system. Through a web search, I have found that it is possible to get a full charge by resetting the CMOS, but I have not found instructions on how to do it on the Lenovo G40-80. I have tried shutting down, disconnecting the AC and the battery, and holding the power button for 1 minute, but it did not work! Another tip I have found in the Arch Linux forums, and tried without success was shutting down the laptop, removing the battery with the AC plugged in, holding the power button for 20 seconds, placing the battery again, holding more 20 seconds, removing the battery, holding more 20 seconds, powering on the laptop, and then reinserting the battery again... I'm going on a long trip tonight, and having a full charge would be extremely important to me!

I have a Lenovo YT3 850f that crashed after attempting to upgrade to android 6.0. I brought it back to factory settings using "YT3-850F_USR_S000025_1510160911_Q1241_ROW_factory_update".The issue I have now its that when I power on the tablet and the system starts up it shuts down soon after because it does not recognize the charge in the battery. If turned on while plugged in I can run initial settings but still shuts down a few seconds later saying battery power is too low and charge showing as charging but at 0%The battery charges just fine when plugged into the cord "slow white flashing light" and I can keep it on for hours under the bootloader screen or under recovery mode without the tablet being plugged in, in fact I've never reached a point in which it turned off on its own with those two methods. I have already tried such things as holding down power button for 20-30 seconds but since not turning on at all isn't the issue all that does is turn the tablet on and off a few times. I tried to use fastboot and adb to look into it but adb does not recognize the device and what I can do with fastboot is extremely limited since I don't get enough time with the tablet being on to go into the settings and turn on developer mode. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can get the system to recognize that the battery is charged?

Hello, I have a much-beloved Flex 3 maybe 10 months old.First question: The battery says it's charging, but it's not actually charging. I"m guessing the battery's shot? I don't have the tools to open the thing up and try disconnecting the battery yet. Second question: Assuming it's dead, is there any problem with runnning the laptop just on the power adaptor? I did see that for other models this seems to be ok. I'm outside the US right now and have little hope of getting a new battery until July. Every day the battery decreases 1%, and eventually it'll be gone. I can wait until I get back if I can run on a dead battery. Currently at 57%.In case it's relevant, I'm in West Africa in 220V land.(As a side note, I dropped the thing when I first arrived and the screen cracked, but it hasn't lost any functionality so far, so kudos to Lenovo for that!) Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

I've been troubleshooting slightly higher than expected power usage on my P70. Yesterday, the Lenovo Settings app Battery Charge Threshold displayed a slider that I could adjust.To-day, it does not. There was both a "Runtime Application Reconfiguration" for the Lenovo Power Manager to-day and Lenovo System Interface Driver install/reconfiguration mentioned in the Reliability Monitor. I'm looking at a battery that's sitting at 75% (not charging)- when it should be charging to 80%.Any ideas? I'd like to have a charging threshold.

Dear all, I just purchase Lenovo V310 14-IKB with double battery. No problem with my main battery, but the problem are in my backup battery (the detachable one). I start to replace the DVD Rom with this battery and charge it, but after 80% it stop and said "80 plugged in and not charging". I want this battery charged to 100% too, same as my primary battery. I need it because I often work mobile and charge until 100% helps me to stay without charger for longer. I already searched for the solutions, read posts from forums.lenovo.com, install apps and drivers (Lenovo Utility, Lenovo Vantage, etc.) but there was no exact solution for this issue. Does anyone from this forum experience the same issue? If yes, is there any solution to make the Lenovo V310 14-IKB charge into 100%? Please help me. Thank you.
