T450s Power Bridge not working

#1 Post by boberto19 » Sat Nov 30, 2019 5:01 pm

Whenever I try to hot-swap the removable battery, and I pull out the removable battery, it momentarily loses power and the computer reboots (on internal power/ "battery 1") before I slip in the new battery, which entirely defeats the purpose of having a battery bridge.

Anyone have a clue how to fix this? I'm running win10.

I don't know if you ever got this resolved, but did you install the power manager driver? I'm running 8.1 on mine and this method of swapping batteries seems to work well for me. I did use the Lenovo System Update and installed all the recommended drivers for it however.
