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

New Lenovo x260 and I love the machine. I noticed that the system uses the internal battery and discharges it to 5 percent before switching to the external battery. This behavior seems contrary to what is stated in the Lenovo settings application that indicates the swappable 3- or 6-cell battery (i have both) will be discharged first, then the internal battery is discharged. It then charges in the reverse order -- internal battery charges first, then the external battery. Is this something that can be adjusted? Will the system occasionally use the internal battery first? I am using only genuine Lenovo external batteries and both are healthy and get used and charged just fine. The only thing that I can imagine I've done to create the problem is by reinstalling the system image from a recovery disk I created before doing anything with the machine. That story: The instant I booted into Windows 10 for the first time upon recieving the new machine, I created recovery media. I formatted the machine and tried to install Windows 10 professional using a serial I own but I encountered an activation issue. As a result, I abandoned my effort to run a clean install, booted the USB recovery key I created and restored the system to the Lenovo factory state with all the drivers installed and the nifty Thinkpad wallpaper, and so on. So I am using the system with a factory image. Or is this just normal behavior? Thanks in advance.

I have over a dozen Thinkpad models at my disposal (from T400's to T450's, and X230's to X260's) and just lately was asked by someone to look into battery options for the X260. Take a look at this page: https://support.lenovo.com/ch/en/solutions/pd027968 There are 2 batteries shown - the 3-cell 23.5Wh (68) and the 6-cell 72Wh (68+). But there is no mention of the 6-cell 47Wh battery (also 68+). But how did I get to this page? After searching and searching ... and more searching ... through PSREF's, part number sheets etc ... I looked at the FRU on the battery of an X260 I bought recently (45N1735) and searched for it online -> On the bottom of the second page of Google search was the very first Lenovo link ... the above linked-to page.But when I bought this X260 the only battery options given to me were the 6-cell 72Wh and 6-cell 47Wh - no 3-cell 23.5Wh option whatsoever. And even though the part number of the 6-cell 47Wh is on the page (45N1735) there is no mention of it's Wh's or anything else to distingush it from the 72Wh. And now, if you look at this page under 'Hardware compatibility' for both batteries it's written 'ThinkPad T440s' and below that 'Note: For the latest updates on the compatible systems, please refer to the Accessories Compatibility Guide.'. Then you go to this 'Accessories Compatibility Guide' and end up having to download an Excel spreadsheet (no, I am not kidding!). REALLY Lenovo!?!?&... Read more

So, I bought the laptop because many reviews and even Lenovo's website tout HUUUUGE battery life with the X260 and the 7cell battery.So I pulled the trigger and got one. Here's the article I used:http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/thinkpad-x260-full-hd-battery-life I have the 1920x1080 screen. Windows 10 reports about 9 hours of possible use time.  I haven't really loaded anything special on Windows 10 yet which would even chew into the battery life. What's going on here? NOTE: I haven't tested actual use time to see if Windows resets or cleans up the amount of life remaining. I plan to exhaust the battery to see how long it really does go.. but wanted to get some opinions if I have maybe a problem system / battery. Thanks.

Hi all, appologies for the long post. I am using Windows 7 and re-building an image for the Lenovo X260 as a few users have reported an error with Power Point in Office 2010.  When on battery Power Point slide shows won't advance through the slides, it just stops and won't move to next slide on keypress or mouse click, on mains power it works fine, I had a mess around with a users laptop that has the issue and installing Lenovo System Update and installing all the available updates and drivers solved the problem so I re-created the image on another X260 and the problem returned but now, installing Lenovo System update and all software & drivers doesn't fix the issue, this is on a clean install of Windows 7. when the slide show pauses I can press the Windows key and click Power Point and there is a little box that says Resume slide show, clicking this sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, all windows updates are installed, if I use an external keyboard and mouse it works OK, I've tried disabling all power management in BIOS and Windows, the only permanent fix I've found that works everytime is to disable Hardware Acceleration in Office settings but some of the docs users have are massive so don't want to cause any slowdowns or issues (plus it's anoying that I can't find another solution even though it worked on a users laptop) Anyone else seen this issue or have an idea of a fix Cheers

I have received my new X260 laptop a month ago (also my first Lenovo), I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro and a bunch of drivers. It has been working well until now. Two days ago, I used it all-day with original adaptor plugged in. At the end of the day, I unplugged it and close the lid to put it to Sleep mode before I left work. The day after, I came to work and found my X260 battery was at 5%. I thought I have mistakenly set the Power Option so I checked and it was set to Sleep when I close the lid. Yesterday, I did the same, put it to Sleep before leaving work, but this time I clicked Start > Power icon > Sleep to make sure it entered Sleep mode and I watched the red LED on the lid blink slowly. Today I came to work and the battery was at 5% again! I am suspecting that X260 woke up at some point during the night. I don't know how, no cables connected. Please guide me if I need to update any driver or check any settings on Windows/BIOS. Thank you.

Initially my device was working just fine.

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.

Hi everyone, Title says it all, I know this topic of discharging internal battery first has been brought up a lot, and that the reason behind it is this: The T470s are designed to drain the battery with least wear first so as to degrade both batteries equally and prolong the laptop's overall battery life. However, as I'm using a new 61++ battery, clearly somethig is going wrong somewhere as the year old internal battery cannot be in better condition than the brand new external.https://gyazo.com/6c12f3f40514599d04d852a8589189ab Any ideas? Thanks!

The machine has not a high load at this time and no keystroke is lost. It is just delayed strongly. To make it more complicate, this symptom disappears until next reboot when I lock the screen with win+l and reunlock the screen with my password.

Hi, Just to clarify, the 601 error relates to your notebooks main battery ( not the rtc cell on the system board ). If you're happy with running the machine on mains power full time, there's no issue with that and you can simply remove the battery. If you do want to replace the battery at some time, you can order a new one through HP Parts Store or ( and often less expensive ), just google the full Model No. of your dv7 series notebook including the term battery. Regards, DP-K

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.

The most common MB battery is a CR-2032 Lithium. Usually found at most Drug stores, WalMart, etc. Arround $2. That would be a cheap test to try first.

I can't say whether they can be added.  Hopefully others here can address that.

I receive this error message on start-up: HP Battery AlertThe system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low. For optimal performance, this battery may need to be replaced.Primary (internal) Battery (601)ENTER - Continue StartupFor more information, please visit: www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup. whats the difference between the internal battery and external battery?  I have replaced the external battery with a new one but the message still displays

A:internal battery error 601

It would help to know your laptop model. But I would say the "internal" is the CMOS or Real Time Clock battery. That is why I ask your model because it is unusual to see one of those die in less than 5 years. The model of the laptop would also allow us to show you how to replace the internal battery. It can be quite a job although the little battery (like a hearing aid battery) is very inexpensive usually.

I have received the dreaded 601 error before my start-up process.  I ran the battery check through the operating systems' diagnostics (F2) and it said it would need replaced due to use over time.  I also ran the battery charge check through HP Support Assistant and it said that it was very weak and possibly needed replaced.   How do I replace my internal battery?  The website that HP Support Assistant took me to only had the external batteries available.  

A:Internal Battery Error (601)

Can we have your full model number? I think the error you are seeing refers to the "main", large battery and not the little clock or CMOS battery. Is your system closed so that the battery is not easily removeable? The full model number will point us to the right service manual which will show the part you need and the replacement process. Also need to know what country you live in.  http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00033108
