Lenovo Tab 3 Essential Battery Suddenly Drains at 50%

2016-06-25, 10:38 AM

2 weeks ago, i have bought 2 brand new Lenovo Tab 3 Essential tablets and on both tablets the battery is suddenly empty, while it was still around 50% full. This happens in stand-by, with no apps running.

I have resetten both tablets and the problem remains the same.

Can you please help me solve this problem, without sending both tablets to Service Center?

I added screenshots of both batteries.

I have the same issue. Bought the tablet one and a half weeks ago, also in the Netherlands. I've seen it go from around 85% to empty. It will just drop dead during standby, and will not boot again until I charge it for a bit.

 

Is this a software issue, or did we just get a bad batch of tablets?

It happens with mine, too. Battery dies in standby even with WiFi off sometimes. Watching YouTube videos also causes the same problem, within minutes the tablet dies.

Same issue for me.

 

I bought two of them a week ago and both  shows the same behavior. Battery dies when it reaches 50% in stand by.

I had hoped the problem might fix itself, that it had something to do with faulty battery calibration or something. But it kept occuring, so today I took it back to the store and they sent it back to Lenovo. Let's see if they can fix this.

 

All in all, a lot of hassle for what I thought would be a useful Spotify remote. I actually decided upon the Tab 3 Essential because the reviews claimed it had a good battery life.

Have been having this problem as well!  Have already taken one Tab 3 back with this issue thinking it was a one off, but the replacment Tab 3 is doing the same thing!  

After seeing the responses here it is obviously a global issue.  Surely it could be fixed with a software update or something?  Not sure I'm willing to wait around for Lenovo though and will just return for a refund.

I have the same problem, and have seen some promising results over the last few days (at the expense of losing some functionality) after setting "keep wlan on during sleep" to "only when plugged in" in advanced wifi settings.

Hopefully Lenovo can pull their finger out and fix it in an update. They should - it's a significant fault in the tablet's functionality. Preferably as an upgrade to marshmallow, and preferably changing the word "WLAN" in the settings app to the much more widespread "WiFi"
