Legion Y530 battery problems

Dear Lenovo,

I'm already sick and tired of this problem. You have the full stories here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Y530-Battery-Drain-While-Gaming/m-p/4197109#M19761

Please find a solution for this, this is my second unit I ordered because the first one I returned to the shop because of the battery problems. I have the same issue with this one. What's the problem with the legion series ? Why you are not able to fix this ? Did you have a whole batch of defective products ? Is not enough 135W power supply to power this model ? Is any battery issue in this model ? Any firmware update to fix this on the way ? Please respond, I want an official answer. I posted on facebook page Lenovo Romania, and they deleted my comment. Your customer support is pure garbage. You dont care about your customers.

Hi Dan,

 

I noticed same behaviour on my Y530 as well.

I have reached out to Lenovo to bring this issue to their attention.

I'll keep you posted.

Re: Legion Y530 battery problems

For what i have seeing, the problem is the 135W power supply. I have enter in contact with the store where i bought the laptop but until now, i don't receive any response. I will pressure the store to give me some feedback.

Re: Legion Y530 battery problems

Guys ... I am using the Y530 with 1050Ti config and indeed I was seeing this issue as well until I updated the BIOS to 43WW.

I am really not seeing this now when playing CS:GO or Heroes Of The Storm. I am using the 135w power brick as well.

Can you guys share with me the config you guys are using to see if I am able to replicate the problem at my end.

Re: Legion Y530 battery problems

Well, I have everything updated, I have the latest drivers, I have Lenovo Vantage app to keep the drivers up to date and I also have the latest BIOS. I'm used to work with the computers/laptops so I have a little knoledge about this. Lenovo should fix this as soon as possible. I think the first problem is the 135W power brick that comes with this laptop. As a second reason I think is the BIOS firmware or the chipset/power management driver. I'm still waiting for a fix, but lenovo don't care about regular mainstream customers, they focus more on eneterprise customers because that's the place where they get the most of their money $$. End.

Re: Legion Y530 battery problems

@Dan_Petrescu, As mentioned in my post I am using the Y530 1050Ti with the 135w brick. No drain on 43ww. As I've suggested in my previous post if you are still having a problem, send it to the service center and let them go figure it out.

@matavelhos,

Boot priorty when on higher version of BIOS? Fan noise?
