Y520 plugged in not charing

2018-03-31, 21:48 PM

I have a new lenovo Y520 laptop and i have it always plugged in... just recently i started to worry cause i would notice it wont charge at times when its at 97%. it would say Plugged in, not charging.

 

i have installed all the drivers and utilities here (drivers

 

is this normal behaviour? as i stated the laptop is always plugged in. 

is there a utility I have forgotten to install perhaps?

 

at the time i am writing this its showing 97% plugged in, not charging.

Open Lenovo Vantage if already preinsalled. If not, download from microsoft store.
Go to Hardware Settings > Power. There is Conservation Mode option. Check if it's on / off.

If there is no Conservation Mode, check this solution:

Most newer laptops dont charge if they are at or above 95% already. This depends on Power IC. This is a feature to increase life span of battery. if your battery is at 94% or less with conservation mode off it will change up to 100%. But if it is at 95% or higher it will say "Plugged in not charging" This happens to most morden laptops. not just Lenovo but other brand also. It depends on power IC. Again this is a feature not an issue.
