T470 power bridge wired battery discharging order, always internal battery first

Q: T470 power bridge wired battery discharging order, always internal battery first

Hoping this problem will be noticed by more people, the original post on this issue came from:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/T470-Linux-Power-Bridge-wrong-discharge-order/td-p/365...https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/63odjr/t470_battery_order_question_internal_discharges/ Brief description: same problem with OS including Win 10, Ubuntu 16.04, Gentoo etc. The internal battery always gets discharged first regardless its remaining power, which is generally harmless but seems not so good for the internal battery life. With my own T470 machine, updated with the latest 1.29 BIOS, this problem remains. According to searching results online, this little bug came with early versions of X's and T' including T460. PS: this issue had been successfully fixed with T460 via BIOS update 1.26, hoping it would be fixed with T470 sooner or later. Best regards.

Hello, When on battery power, my X260's internal battery is discharging before the external battery. I am using Windows 10 Home and bios is 1.19 (what it came shipped with). I haven't found any definite solution to this problem--only comments from others where the problem went away eventually. I've had the computer for 10 days and have tried many suggestions but nothing is working--the internal battery continues to drain first before the external one. I'm hesitant to call or get support because I don't want to send the computer in or have a tech rip the computer apart for what is apparently a software/firmware issue. Just to add: all drivers are updated and battery performance is perfectly normal--I get the expected run times. It's just the internal battery is draining first and then the external one second. I would appreciate any other suggestions or a fix. Thanks

Hi all,

My Toshiba Satellite A30-871 notebook has started discharging the battery whilst the mains power supply is connected (The LED shows that AC is connected but Laptop consumes battery power instead of charging battery and using AC power). When the battery reaches 0% laptop will switch off. Removing the power plug and reconnecting does not solve the problem while the computer is ON, only shutting down computer starts the battery to charge. Which means that I can use laptop as long as battery retains some power. Sometimes when the notebook is off and battery is being charged, battery charging LED starts to blink and I have to remove the power jack and plug it back.

I don''t think its a loose power connector because the light shows the power is connected.

I wonder if anyone got a solution for me.

Regards,

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
 
Shockingly none worked that I found.
 
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
 
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
 
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
 
Worked with an off brand battery also.
 
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
 
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
 
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

For example if I charged the battery to 100% then shut down windows, and turned the laptop back on a few hours later I would notice that the battery is at 72%. What the hell?

This is an IBM Thinkpad I1400 series. The battery would not charge so I replaced it with a new one. It now charges but here are some observations that are suspect to me. Once the battery has been charged to !00% according the Power Meter, I shut down the system, disconnected the A/C power and looked at the Power Meter again. It registers about 98%. Within a 2 or 3 minutes, I shut it down again. After about 2 days, I again power up the system on battery only, check the Power Meter and it registers only 65%. Shouldn't these batteries hold their charge for much longer than this when not in use for just 2 days? Is there something else going on that might be discharging the battery? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My new and virtually unsused laptop is discharging its battery at the rate of 10% in 48 hours when switched off and not in hibernation mode. When removing the battery it is loosing 2% in 48 hours.

I have fully charged the battery to 100% and shut down whilst still on charge.

There is no doubt in my mind that the battery is discharging when fitted, and only loosing a small amount of charge when removed from the laptop.

Have any other users experienced the same problem. Result is that in one week the battery will discharge some 35%, which I find unacceptable.

Hi

I think this is nothing wrong buddy
The battery will always s discharge a little bit even though the notebook is not running.

Take a look into the user manual.
I did it and found this:

When you turn off your computer with fully charged batteries, the batteries retain data for the following approximate time periods;

Battery pack 12 cell; 2 days (sleep mode); 20 days (Shut down mode)
Battery pack 6 cell; 1 day (sleep mode); 10 days (shut down mode)
Battery pack 3 cell; 0,5 days (sleep mode); 5 days (shut down mode)

You must always check following software/ bios settings in order to decreased the battery discharging:
- standby/ resume mode, hibernation etc. will reduce the time until the battery is empty dramatically
- always check wether Wake On Lan or Wake on HDMI is enabled
- always check wether USB sleep and charge is enabled

Hi all,

I have an Inspiron 1525 that is one year old. Recently the battery will be completely dead when I try to turn on the laptop and will not power on unless I plug it in. The battery meter will be at 0% when it starts up, but recharges normally when plugged in. When I unplug the laptop and close the lid (which puts it into sleep mode) the battery will be completely dead by the next morning even if it was at 100% before I closed it. I don't know why the battery is discharging completely so quickly when the computer isn't even running.

Could this just be a problem with my battery? Or is the laptop not actually sleeping when I close it, but continually using up battery power? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
 

A:Laptop battery discharging when in sleep mode

Note there's a difference between "Sleep" vs. "Hibernation"
> Sleep mode still requires power (It should be minimal power but definitely still draws some power)
> Hibernation requires zero power

That said, i still wouldn't expect a good battery to discharge overnight on sleep mode so you probably still have an issue with your battery holding a charge

hi Bhan168,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
To check the battery, can you try and run following:
1. Download and install BatteryCare and post the detailed info on the battery.
   - Sample info
 
2. Open an elevated Command Prompt (press the Windows key? +X and choose Command Prompt (Admin))
   - on the command prompt box, type powercfg -energy
   - once It generates the energy-report.html file, move this to your desktop and double click it. It will help if you can post a screenshot of the report or upload it (eg. Dropbox) so we can check if there's an app or a driver running on the background that's eating up power and making the battery drain much faster.

Recently, my Spectre X360 seemed to be completely flat every time I went to use it. This is despite being turned off (not in sleep mode or any other lazy-shutdown mode). I've had this lappy for probably two years now, but use it only occasionaly, like say, once every two months. With that infrequent use, I do expect some discharge over that time and it usually had some charge left in it as far back as I can remember. Nevertheless, of late, I've been using the lappy a bit more frequently and have noticed it was completely flat after leaving it for just a week or less. So I searched for an answer on this forum and found a couple of threads that went on for pages with "me too" posts and useless cut-and-paste answers from techs (mostly offering software "solutions") which I knew were not relevant. Eventually I found a couple of clues burried deep in the threads that made sense.  They were the 5v USB charging while turned off along with having any USB devices left attached (someone mentioned mouse dongles). Immediatly, I realised that my recently purchased 128Gb Sandisk nub drive, which I have left attached, may have been a contributor. Subsequently, I;1. Now remove the nub drive when the machine is not in use (despit it being designed to be left in all the time).2.

Received a new T470 a couple of weeks ago, but having issues when running off battery (internal + 3 cell): 1. Power Bridge failure: sometimes if I unplug machine and run off batteries, then remove the external battery, the machine shuts off immediately rather than switching to the internal battery. This occurs 1/2 or 1/3 of the time. 2. When booting machine (if machine is unplugged, running on battery): sometimes it hangs indefinitely at Lenovo splash screen (i.e. with endlessly spinning icon). Only way out is to reset machine by punching reset button on the back. (Note: #2 occurs always after #1 occurs, and 1/2 or 1/3 of the time on a regular reboot). 3. However: boot hang never occurs if booting while machine is plugged in OR if external battery is removed (i.e. running with the internal battery only). Boot hang only occurs if booting off batteries and external battery is installed. I called Tech Support, they sent a new internal battery, but that makes no difference. They also said it might be a faulty system board, but I ran full Lenovo HW diagnostics and all tests passed successfully including mother board test. Also tried a complete factory reset (Windows 10 x64), loaded all latest updates & drivers incl. latet BIOS (1.30), which I reset to default values (F9). Problem still persists. Anybody else experiencing these issues?

I have a strange issue. I have a Lenovo T60 laptop and I am experiencing problems with the power management/power guage.

It will often show the battery not installed (power gauge is a greyish-white color with dashed lines) or it shows a red X. It does not matter if I am on AC power or on Battery power, it will show the full range of power, battery level, not installed, or an error.

I have searched Lenovo's site and I seem to remember seeing an FAQ about this, but now that I need it, I cannot find it.

What can I check or do to stop this? While it is annoying, I am not sure if I am having a battery problem or not. I did check my battery on Lenovo's site to see if it was recalled and it is not.

I do appreciate any help that any one can give me.

Over the last few months I noticed that the battery meter on my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop was blinking red to green and back... so having had this laptop for several years, I assumed that I would need a new battery soon. The adapter power cord was also beginning to lose some of its covering near the plug in site so I ordered both a new battery and power cord. (That was about 2 weeks ago).

Upon receiving my order, I was very pleased to see that when I installed the new battery and new cord, the battery already had some charge (I didn't note how much). I felt relieved to have my mind at ease that all was now well with my computer. (little did I know that I'd be needing help less than two weeks later!).

Important note... I very rarely use my laptop without the power cord... (past experience proved to be frustrating because I always needed more time than the battery provided.)

I've probably only used the laptop "on battery"... a few dozen times over the last 3 years!

Now... I am in a dilemma!

Yesterday, I took the laptop with me out of town when my husband and I did some real estate hunting.
Instead of using the laptop on battery... we had it plugged into a special power converter for use in the car. I noticed that whenever we stopped and turned off the ignition... the laptop would lose it's power immediately, and as we resumed our travel... I'd have to restart the computer... and there would be the "black & white" warning... Read more

But on Toshiba notebook the Vista power option would be extended by some Toshiba power options.

How special! I can get about 2.5 to 3 hours when using the battery, but not if I also plug in the power cord.  That means that when the battery gets low I must perform a standard shutdown and then insert the power cord which recharges the battery if I don't turn  on computer.  If I then start the computer with both connected, it crashes.  I am not patient enough to live with a computer that has to be recharged every couple of hours.  HELP! I suspected a heating issue, so I took the back panels off and thoroghly cleaned the fan vents and other cracks and crevices using canned air, but this did not fix the problem.  Since in runs just fine on the battery, I deduce it is NOT a heating issue, neither dust or heat paste issues.  (I also used a cooling mat to no avail) Im 70 years old living in God's waiting room, but parts of my body are 18 to 30.  However, I do have "Essential Tremors" in both hands so I cannot do a full laptop disassembly even if I want to, which I don't.  I cannot afford to pay a computer repair shop $100 or more to try a fix this vexing power issue.  Other than hocking my car (it's too old also) to buy a new laptop, does an...

Hi, my girlfriend in Beijing has an Acer Aspire S3 latop. She bought a new battery for it a while back and told me it was no good. I was in Beijing recently messing around with it and found that actually the battery is fine (lasts for >4 hours) but when unplugged and running on battery power, the laptop often just cuts out suddenly (loss of power). I took the battery out and had a look and cleaned all the connections but they seem fine.

The next part is the strange part and which I hope might give someone a clue as to what's going on...

When it cuts out, it will never restart again unless the mains power cable is plugged back into the laptop. As soon as that's done and the power button is pressed, it starts up again and the cable can be taken out immediately (I mean immediately - you can plug the cable in, push the "power on" button and pull the cable back out in less than a second) and it will start up and run fine on battery again... until the next time it suddenly cuts out without warning.

Because any unsaved data is lost and because the laptop cannot restart without the power adaptor, this very portable and light laptop is now reduced to having to be kept at home all the time and plugged in, which is exactly the opposite of what she bought it for.

Anybody have any idea what the problem could be or suggest some tests that could be done to find out? She took it to a local computer shop but the guys there had no idea.

Hello! For more context: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T470-power-bridge-wired-battery-dischar... Currently, the Power Bridge system on the T470 first drains the battery with the least wear based on the Full Charge Capacity (decreasing over time) vs. Design Capcity (constant) from the Lenovo Setting app, so that both batteries wear equally. While this is good for something like the T470s with two internal batteries or even for the T470 when both batteries are 24Wh, this feature is somewhat annoying when one of your batteries is 72Wh external and easily replaceable and the other is 24Wh internal and usually not worth replacing. So, I would like to request that the user, through the Lenovo Settings app, be able to choose between two options: whether to continue with the current behavior of equally draining the two batteries (this can be the default), or choosing to revert to the old behavior of always draining the external battery first. Thank you for your consideration.

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

I bought the laptop used. it appeared the battery wsdead. I bought a new battery. The battery would stay at 53 percent and when i would unplug the charger it would immediatly shut off. i troubleshooted in the device manager and reset the laptop. Nothing happened. I reset a second time and the battery was charging and the laptop would run off battery power. this soon stopped working. I continued to troubleshoot. i got it to charge again and run off battery power but now it will again not run off battery power. the battery is now at 74 percent so i know at some piont charging was happening. this is very frustrating. Iv built a gaming pc jst recently and i feel like i should be able to figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated.

Nope. You have to open the case and take the battery out to replace it

I have an old (1996?) Amstrad with windows `95
I now have a new computer and would like to give the old one to my daughter,but....
Does anybody please know where the internal battery is situated? My screen was telling me to change it. I have it in pieces on the floor and I still can`t see it! Help.
 

A:Internal battery

It will be somewhere on the motherboard. It's a flat round battery like those in a watch only larger. On some older PCs, the battery is soldered to the motherboard so you may need to take it to a shop to have it replaced if that's the case.
