Lenovo ideapad y700 (17ISK) Battery only charges to 93%

Hi,

 

I have 2 of these laptops and one has a battery problem. In Win10 it shows that it can only charge to 93%. I can leave it for few hours and it will still only say 93%. If I take power brick from the other (that can charge to 100%) charging stops at 94%. The light indicator is white when on 93% but the % in windows indicator is bothering (not to me, but to the user). I think that there is a problem in Win10 indicator (since light indicator lights white), but even formating (and converting from Legacy to EFI) didn't solved the problem. Is there a problem with battery?

 

EDIT: At what % does LED turns from orange to white? I checked indicator for white LED when laptop was turned off and charging. So I can't confirm if it charged to 100% and if it charges to 100% when turned on.

Hi there, Mlinko                  -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

You can also start by flushing out all static, remove battery and AC adaptor and hold down power button for about 15 seconds.

 

Based from your post there is a possibility that your machine may be set to optimised battery Life. What you can do is open up the Lenovo Energy Management and under battery ensure that it is set to Maximum Battery life.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

 

Regards,

So this laptop hasn't got removable battery so I cant take it out and let the static out. Also where can I get Lenovo Energy Management. I don't find it. Will check with Lenovo Companion.

So as nothing worked I sent my laptop to be repaired. And as I thought they had to change the Battery. So this is solved. Thanks for the help.
