Lenovo G505s Battery

Guys,

 

I've had my Lenovo G505s for pretty much 2 years now.

 

I have a poor battery performace. Recently my charger malfunctions. It won't work till i have placed it at an agle of the charging port, meanwhile if i use another charger from a friend, it works very fine without struggle. Initally, i thought it was my charging port but I'm sure that it's not now.

 

Also, recently my friend swapped his battery for mine (he had 50% charge on his battery), as soon as he put it into my laptop, he saw that it was around 28%. A few minutes after that, the battery died. 

*One Key Optimizer tells me my battery is weak and needs replacement. Battery capacity is at 42%.

 

My question now is :

1. Do i just need a new battery and a charger?? OR

2. Could it be from my motherboard? (I'm running the AMD A10 with Radeon gpu)

 

I'd really appreciate suggestions from you guys. 

 

Thanks.

Hi TheRealSoJay1 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

At this point we are sure that the ac charger needs replacement as a known good charger works fine.

About the battery as it easily draws out power maybe something that we need to check further. 

You may run battery meter evaluation on the original battery. Allow it to drain normally and then fully charge it and rerun battery meter check again.   

 

You can test the battery pack using the hardware manual guide page 22 for the actual charge. 

 

Update us how it goes. 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo G505s Battery

Hi TheRealSoJay1 , 

 

Since battery is a consumable part ( chemicals depletes thru usage ) .

Report indicates that presently it is 50 % of the original performance (DESIGN CAPACITY 37,500 mWh FULL CHARGE CAPACITY 15,480 mWh ) as it complements with the battery life estimate . 

 

You may extend the battery life doing the battery gauge reset , calibration and even removing the battery when you can connect rather with an ac charger during usage as this decreases the heat it may receive.

 

Your systemboard  would be doing fine , you may just need to have an ac adapter and battery for replacement. You can check on the part number using your serial number or machine number from the parts lookup page for reference to match it from your sticker or hardware manual if needed.  

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards
