I registered an account just for you :). Because I had exactly same problem with my brand new Y580 few days ago. I dont know whats wrong with those laptops, maybe some **bleep**ty manufacturing series - and im wondering, why Lenovo is not responding to this problem.

OK, here ishow you solve that:

1. Open Lenovo Energy Management from your system tray
2. Run Battery repair test
3. Then choose "Maximum battery life"

Then you can finally recharge your battery upto 100%.
Tell me, if its worked for you.

hi Harishkumar1994,


Just like what Martin said, try to set the battery settings from Optimized Battery Health to Maximum Battery Life.

Also, AFAIK, lenovo designed the Optimized Battery Health to protect the battery from being overcharged and thus, prolongs the battery by not overcharging it - see How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries.
