Not charging until 100%

#1 Post by senskill » Wed Oct 09, 2019 4:11 am

Hello guys!

I have a new X1 Carbon (Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (14", Full HD, Intel Core 8eGen i5-8250U, 8Go), bought 2 months ago.
It's the second time in 2 months that i can't charge until 100% the battery. It stoped from itself close to 79 or 80%

First time i hade this issue, i let the computer running until battery was 0%, and i recharged ihm again. result: charged until 90%. Second time let ihm running until 0% battery, recharged ihm again, and this time 100%, feel great again!

But two weeks after that, i'have the same issue. I can't charge the laptop until 100%, only 79 or 80%...

What should i do? I almost know it's not an issue with the batery, i'm almost sure it's software issue...
Should i send the lapotop back to lenovo? What do you think?

Thanks a lot in advance for your tips!

Best regards,

Welcome to the forum. :)

Is there a green battery icon on the taskbar? Click on it and see if you have something about charge thresholds there.

You can control charging threshold with Lenovo Vantage application (downloadable from Microsoft Store) in which you can decide what will be the stop-charging point. I don't know how much mobile you need to be but in general if you can afford not charging your battery to 100% then you may opt to stay at current 80% (or 90%) of maximum charge, your battery should last longer in the long run.
