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.

Hello. This is my first post. Yesterday my new Lenovo Yoga 730 arrived after being purchased through Lenovo's website. It's beautiful, thin, sleek, powerful, ergonomic and sturdy. However, today I was playing Kerbal Space Program (at 4k resolution) on my dining room table less than 24 hours after first booting up the machine, with the power cable plugged in, with plenty of space behind the machine, when the computer suddenly died. It wouldn't turn on for about 5 minutes and it smelled like fireworks or gunpowder or sulfur, especially near the back fan. When it did turn on it died instantly again about a minute later. I went to plug it in and it turned on but it no longer turns on when on battery power. It will instantly die if the cable is unplugged. No other devices were harmed and there is no lightning nearby.Reminder that this machine is a day old. The computer is pretty much maximum specifications. i7-8565u, 16 GB DDR4-2400, GTX 1050 4 GB version, 1 TB SSD, 4k multitouch screen with an active pen. Any advice or knowledge of what went wrong would be helpful.

Dear Community,We bought the abvoe laptop in Nov '18 and it has been working perfectly until recently Even though it shows a 100% charged battery, if it is not plugged in, it dies off instantly. Once it happens there no sign on the external part of the computer (not even a orange blinking) that there would be any juice in the battery. Could that be a software issue (energy manager) or rather a hardware topic (battery is defective) Thank you very much in advance for your advices

Hello all, Please forgive if this has been posted. I couldn't find an answer: I purchased a replacement for my battery, but on installation it wouldn't charge. I tried disabling AC and battery in device manager. I tried complete shut down and reboot. Couldn't get the new battery to be recognized. The old battery still works a bit, so I'm not in serious trouble. but with the battery going on a few years old, I wanted to replace before it left me stranded. Is there something that must be done to tell the system (Win 8.1 x 64 pro) to recognize that the battery is new, and to reflash the battery firmware and reset the driver? Simply replacing the battery didn't quite get the job done. Thank you for any response.

I have a yoga 260 that would not charge the battery when plugged in. I tried a different charger which didn't work and then replaced the battery but also no luck. I sent it to Lenovo and was told I need a new system board which was going to cost around that of a newer laptop. I decided to replace it myself with a refurbished board as I've done this on an old computer in the past. With the install complete it can get some charge to the board because it tries to start up but I am getting 2 short beeps with nothing on the screen. I realize this usually means there is a system board issue. I've rechecked all the connections and everything 4x so I don't think it was an install problem. Is there something else I need to do or did I just buy a bad refurbished board?

My W540 is asking me to consider replacing the battery.

The battery status toggles between not charging, not used, and unauthorized battery after it was calibrated using one key. Before that, the battery was working perfectly, lasting close to 5 hours. Now the laptop shuts off when unplugged and the battery status is constantly changing. I've had this laptop for approximately a year now and it was unused and left in an unopened box for the first 8 months.

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.

Anyway, the laptop is connected 24/7 to AC, yesterday I needed to unplug it and after 5 minutes the system turned off. After turning it on I got this error screened: Critical low-battery error The thing is after I turned it on for the second time everything was great. The battery said that it's 100% charged. But after another 5 minutes or something the battery turned off again - WTH? Does the laptop's battery is broken and I need to give it for the guarantee?

Hi TomHG Which is the full model number of your machine? What I would try to do first is try to update the BIOS of your computer and the power related drivers just in case.But the message that is showing the problem on the BIOS (before Windows boot) it is not nice. I would try tp update the drivers with the following tools- Windows Update- Lenovo System Update- Install Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion.- Check on Lenovo Support site the driver for your model. If after updating the BIOS and power drivers of your computer the problem remains there, I will recommend to contact the Lenovo Support Center. If you are still under warranty Lenovo should fix it by replacing any part. Regards

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

My Yoga had a change of battery in warrenty time (after 3 years) due to a defect on the mainboard. After installation of the new battery, it took quite a certain time, till the battery was found and recharged. After recalibration I tested the new battery with the Lenovo Vantage tool, and it showed a quite good looking capactiy of the cell but a manufacturing date older than the Yoga (more than 3 years). While using the computer it seems as if the battery is worse than my 3 years old former battery. This one was able to last for 5 to 6 hours in normal use. The new one is more like 2 to 3 hours.Is it possible, that the battery was deep-discharged and the Lenovo Vantage tool did not get the right capacity? Is it normal, that a 3 year old battery is installed for a warranty battery replacement?Thanks for help! mark

My Yoga 3 pro is still a nightmare and so far is unusable given onging battery problems. However I digress. The thing wouldn't charge past 72% and took 2 days to get to that from 51%. So yet again I searched the net hoping to find something new and I noted yet another updated battery guage realeased only a few days ago. I also noted that someone had suggested deleting the windows battery drivers in Device Manager after disconnecting the battery which I figured couldn't hurt so went ahead. Once I reconnected the battery, plugged it in and waited for it to download the battery drivers, I noted it didn't install the ACPI component. Now lo and behold, I have no battery guage at all. In fact it says "The battery is not used", but of course it is. I then tried the latest battery guage driver but no improvement. Can anyone help in this age old problem? Cheers

So I just replaced my laptop's battery. It had expanded and stuff and needed urgently replacing.

It's an MSI GS40 6QE Phantom 028UK.

However, the new battery doesn't seem to be working properly. At first, if I unplugged the laptop, it would shut off almost immediately, at like 99%. I assumed it was because the battery hadn't reached full capacity, as I hadn't done the thing where I discharge and recharge the battery a few times which seems to be recommended.

Obviously I couldn't discharge the battery by unplugging and letting it run down, since it would just turn off.

MSI's MSI Battery Calibration tool, while the charger is plugged in, runs the battery down to <5%, and then up to 10% and then stops.

I charged to 100% and ran that 5 times, and the laptop shuts off at around 80-90% now. I tested after only 2 calibrations and it shut off at 82%, and after 5 it shut off at 90%, so it doesn't seem to be having any further impact.

The Battery Calibration did fail one time - it shut off when it discharged to 80% - I didn't include that as one of my 5 calibrations.

I've experienced no problems when plugged in.

Does anyone know what the problem could be / how I could diagnose / fix it?

Thanks in advance

if those aren't set in 20% it probably means your battery is out of calibration.

Hi.I have a x201 laptop. I have two batteries - one original 6-cell, which is pretty old and one non-original 9-cell, which is rather new.When I unplug the computer from power, with either battery, what happens is that it shows that it has fairly normal percentage left, and that it also has fairly normal time left (for example, yesterday I used the 9-cell, and it showed 95% and about 3 hours), at the beginning it drops fairly normally (with the 9-cell it was about 20 minutes later when it showed 84%, so about 10% for 20 min use, which is reasonable).But then, after mere minutes (let's say 5 more minutes or so), with no warning at all, the battery is at 0, and the computer hibernates.Since this is happening with both batteries, and in the same everything-is-fine-until-it's-not manner, I don't really think it's a battery issue, but rather suspect it might be firmware\software\driver related. Any thoughts?

hi there,

I have a Acer Aspire E1 570 laptop that I use for college, the laptop is less then 8 months old. For some reason recently it starting going dead at 40% battery charge remaining. I ran a powercfg -energy from the command prompt and it said that my batterys designed charge is 37000 and last full charge untill the battery read it was fully charged is 36526. If some one would happen to know why this is happening that would be great, as i use the laptop on the battery all the time while i'm at school. I was thinking maybe just refresh the PC from the recovery i made using the provided software with the computer. I'm unsure if that would correct the issue. As well as i haven't found anything on google for this issue on my laptop.

Thanks

I would contact Acer, since the laptop is still within the warranty period. There are programs out there that can "fix" errors like this. Most likely you just have a bad battery pack in your laptop.

Hello,

I am not sure if this is the best place for this topic, but here goes. During the Christmas season i received a shiny new SSD for my Dell 1121 laptop. I went about installing the drive following one of the many install articles on the interwebs that shows several optimization tips for SSDs. After doing so i noticed the expected increase in performance. Mostly the startup times of the OS and of most apps.

Only problem i have now is that my battery tends to die rather rapid while the system sleeps. Prior to the SSD it would seem i could leave the system on standby for a week or better with no issue. Now i am lucky if the system stays alive for a day on standby.

Can anyone think of something that may have changed during the install or a SSD optimization thing that could have screwed with my battery life on standby?

Thanks in advance.

A couple months ago, my laptop stopped giving me a low battery warning. It would just die when the battery was too low. This wasn't a big deal a couple months ago because I was on summer vacation, but now that school is in session, I will lose my notes and homework without much chance to revive. I have tried adjusting the warning levels in the advanced power settings, but that did nothing. I tried talking to a Windows representative via chat, but he brought up 2 payment plans so they could fix it. I believe there is a way that doesn't require payment for some guy to remotely fix my laptop.

I have a P400 running windows 10.  For a while now, I've noticed that when I'm running on battery, my wifi connection will only last for a short amount of time.  Sometimes it will be 2 minutes, sometimes it will be 20.  When it dies, I get a little exclamation point on the wifi icon in the system tray.  Sometimes I can disconnect and reconnect to the network, but sometimes that doesn't work.  Sometimes I can disable wifi and re-enable it, but sometimes that doesn't work.  Sometimes I can reboot and get it back, but sometimes that doesn't work either.  The only foolproof way to get it back is to plug in the computer and reboot.  As long as its running on AC power, it works fine. I've tried a full reformat and it still hasn't helped.  Any suggestions?

My laptop dies if I am on the battery and the battery percent gets between 25-40% then it will just completely shut off. It never used to do this for the first 8 months i've owned it. Now it does it every time I'm on the battery. Any ideas?

also, right before this started happening I was getting GREAT battery life out of my battery, so I don't personally think the battery has gone bad, however you may feel different!

A:Laptop COMPLETELY dies before low battery level??

Batteries for laptops typically only last about 1 year before their capacity starts to dwindle. Since you are only 8 months old, I would call whomever made the laptop and see if they will warranty it for you. What you are describing is exactly what happens when the battery loses it's ability to hold a charge. From 40-0 in a flash.

Hello, I am writing this post because my computer has had this ongoing problem, and it’s starting to annoy me… It used to be that when the battery power got low, the battery icon in the tray would generate a warning message that my battery only had a certain percentage of life remaining, and that I only had a certain amount of time to connect it to a wall socket via my charger before the computer went into sleep mode (Power Saver Mode). If I didn’t connect it to a power source, it would go to sleep until I did connect it to one and pressed the power button… It doesn’t do that anymore. Now I get no warnings and the computer just experiences an illogical shuts down. It's very annoying, whenever I use my computer I have to keep it connected to a wall socket, lest it unexpectedly shut down on me. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

Thank you.
