Hello.I seeking for help on this issue. I bought my Lenovo Yoga 510 about seven months ago, and today when I opened Lenovo Settings to check for updates, I saw the disclaimer that my battery can only charge 34% of its original capacity.Is it possible that a battery in its proper condition can detereorate like this in such a short period of time, or should I claim for a warranty solution? https://imgur.com/a/sZckaDg

A:Lenovo Yoga 510 battery can only charge up to 34% of its capacity

I would call support.  They will most likely ask you to run a battery guage reset.  If after reset its still like that and laptop is under 1 year old and under warranty in my opinion they will replace battery.

Hi guys, I've had my Yoga 900 since December 2015 and I enjoy this ultrabook.  I am concerned about the battery life though. The specs say up to 9 hours of battery life, but based on my usage I would have to say that I am only confident of 6 hours worth of charge. My typical use is as follows: 1) Approximately 75% screen brightness (225 nits)2) Combo of WiFi with multiple Google Chrome tabs open, video and music usage mixed in my typical day. Those of you with the Yoga 900, would you say that this is normal or typical? Thanks, Nik

Is there any reason my Yoga won't charge the battery over 59%? It says plugged in but not charging? I tried charging it with the laptop off but that didn't seem to help. Please help!!!











Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Yoga won't charge battery over 59%

It's the Lenovo Energy Management settings.Go to Control Panel >> Power Options >> Change plan settings >> Change advanced power settings >> Lenovo Energy Management >> Enable Lenovo Energy Management.Change the battery setting from "Optimized Battery Health" to "Maximum Battery Life." By only partially charging the battery, the software is prolonging the lifespan of the battery itself.  This is true of all laptop batteries.  If you often leave your computer plugged in, it's best to keep this setting enabled.  If you can anticipate your mobile useage in advance, you can just turn off the feature at appropriate times.It would be nice if the setting was easier to change.  If somebody knows an easier way, feel free to post it.I suppose you could always put a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Management\Energy Management.exe" on your start screen, taskbar or desktop.  Alternatively, you could put a shortcut on the desktop, assign a hotkey to it, and super-hide the shortcut (a little more advanced).

It looks like we can add the Yoga 15 to the list of badly designed Lenovo models with battery issues.  I just got my Yoga 15 on Monday, and by Thursday the battery was continually saying "plugged in not charging."  It's still running on AC power, but the battery is gradually diminishing.  I'm using Windows 10 64 and haven't installed any other power or fan management software. I haven't seen any other mentions of Yoga 15's with this problem, so if anyone has a solution for this model, I'd be grateful.  There is no OneKey software on this machine, so the solutions offered for the Yoga 3 don't apply here. If you're thinking of buying a Yoga 15, caveat emptor.

A:Yoga 15 battery will not charge

And now more fun: when I called tech support, they told me I don't have a warranty, not even the standard warranty that all Lenovo PCs ship with (I bought direct from Lenovo). Like I said, if you're thinking about buying a Yoga 15, there might be better options out there.  Better companies ,too.

Hi NMB900 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Would this be for a Yoga 900-13ISK Laptop ?
 
You could follow the Power Checkout guide (page 21-22) from the hardware manual .
Plug in the ac charger on the ac port (item 1 page 8) while it is off and observe the battery indicator .
Have it connected for 1-2 hours and see if there are changes on the battery led status (page 28) . 
It should progress from blinking amber to blinkin white to solid white.
 
If there are no battery indicator (off) , it would be best to call in technical support for needed service.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hello,Has anyone ever had this happen before? As the title of the post suggests, I have a 3rd gen X1 Carbon Yoga (still under warranty) and yesterday the following happened.

And when I looked at it the next morning, the charge light was still on.?? I powered on, and to my dismay, the laptop hadn't charged at all! But it said "plugged in, charging" on the battery icon again.So, I powered down and waited.  Within about 30 minutes, the charge was up to the 80% I have the charge capped at through the Lenovo Power Manager. What could cause that?Has anyone here experienced this sequence of events before?

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 just bought my Yoga 910 two weeks ago and within the first week it would sometimes not turn on unless I plugged it in briefly. Now, it will only turn on when plugged in and can't detect the battery saying that it is at 100% but will power off when unplugged. I still have my year long warranty and would just like to return the product altogether as there are no Lenovo service stations in my area but I'm not even sure how to do this so any help would be welcome! (My fingerprint scanner also stopped working and my start screen has been glitching as well. Not sure if the problems related but I've never dropped or hit the laptop on anything so I'm hoping the product is just defective and can be replaced)

I purchased my Yoga 900 in June, 2016.  I recently experienced my battery not holding a charge for more than 3 hours.  I used the free version of Driver Talent to scan for updates to my drivers.  Two needed to be updated. I updated both, rebooted and my battery showed a charge period for 6 hours and 23 minutes.  I believe this occurred after the recent windows 10 update.   I had a difficult time trying to discern the exact solution by searching through this forum.  Hopefully, this post will help others to find a quick solution.

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.

Please tell me this is not waht i should have expected!   My Brand new (like i bought it last night) Yoga 720 on a full charge only lasts 2 hours.  Is it defective?   I tested it by playing a movie on Netflix without the charger plugged in and half way through the movie, i'm at 50%, so the meter seems to be correct.   Help? 

A:Yoga 720 13IKB new out of box, full charge - battery life 2 h 20m

It's possible you got a bad one. It's also possible the computer, being brand new, is doing a lot of things that eat battery. FWIW, I've noticed the battery gauges are rarely accurate out of the box. They give a best-guess depending on what the computer's doing over a particular slice of time. If your machine is downloading and installing windows updates, doing a virus scan, updating other programs and what-have-you - like all new computers do - then that coupled with a gauge that hasn't learned the computer, yet, could lead to the indications you're getting.
 
Give it a couple of full charge-discharge cycles. Let everything update. Update your BIOS and drivers, as well. If your machine came with McAfee, temporarily disable it.  THEN see what kind of life you get. If it's still short, use Task Manager to see if anything else is running in the background. If not, then it's possible you got a bad battery.
 
My first day with my 920 showed 4 1/2 hours. Now, it routinely shows anywhere from 6-9 hours. In practice, it runs about 5 or more when I'm using it on the road (word processing and light web browsing). My 910 did 4 hours running movies on a flight. It showed 30 minutes left when I plugged it in during the layover. It ran another 90 minutes and probably would have gone longer but the flight was over.

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:

Everything was fine, until I turned my computer on this morning and realized it wasn't storing power.

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.

Hello, Does anybody tried to charge the Device by USB-PD? Technically it should be possible with a >90W Charger, but I read different Statements. Some say, it's only charging, if the device is off. But that's not the target, it should be possible to work & charge with it.Others say, that only the 13" Yoga can be charged, the 15" (4k Display btw.) seems to need too much energy and doesn't push it to the battery But 90W, as the original dedicated non-usb-Power-Charger, is 90W, so there seems to be negotiating-issues. But as I said: Too many different statements. My Dream-Configuration would look something like this:- 1 USB-C-Charger like Dell TDK33 (4,[email protected])- 1 USB-C-Hub (primarly for LAN & Display), e.g. Andobil 9-in-1. It's too expensive to buy & try. Especially if there are Negotiating-Issues, you have to try different Chargers until you find a working one or to come to the conclusion, that its impossible. TL;DR: Can I Charge the 730-15ikb (4k) over USB-C while working?

What charge does the battery indicator say it's at? Windows won't allow charging until battery capacity has dropped below 90%. So, if you plug it in at 95%, you'll get that message.

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:

HiI have a Lenovo Flex 3 1480 thats about 2 years old. Suddendy the battery wont charge. When the AC adapter is plugged in the icon says 21% available (plugged in, charging) but its NOT charging. My drivers are up to date. Windows 10 is up to date. I downloaded the Lenovo Vantage which tells me the battery is GOOD and that the AC adapter has limited use. Says AC adapter cannot provide enough power to operate the computer....... OK so I bought a new Lenovo brand AC charger. Same problem. I really dont think I have the ability to open the back of this computer and take out the battery then put it back in to see if that works.Anyone have any useful suggestions?

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.

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! Thank you for your attention!

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 do appreciate it.

Hi. I have been using Lenovo vibe S1 for about 6 months now. And since 3 days the battery has suddenly started to loose its charge very quickly. I put the charger on and charged it to 100% and when I removed the charger (without overcharging) after 10 mins the charging left was 96% Is anyone else also facing this issue? Why is this happening?Anything I can do to stop it?Help!

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?
