Re: Lenovo Z560 battery charging

Even I am facing the same problem.....but I've found the solution for this....first of all change the settings in lenovo energy management software to optimize battery runtime...

and after that completely charge ur battery to100%(do not stop at 99%, It takes some time)& it shows fully charged.

now disconnect the power and check for the problem....? magic the problem is solved............

 

the problem occurs because even if laptop shows that it is charged till 99% it does not....it completely charges itself till100%........

 

thanx for reading....:manhappy:

@ krock
when did you buy your computer? do you still have valid warranty?
they could ask your credit card information to pay shipping fee, by the way.

For battery reset on Z560, open Energy Management.

Click Battery Gauge Reset.
