Hi
Welcome to the forums!
The blinking light indicates that the laptop is getting charged.
When the light is amber, it signifies that battery is low.
When the light is white and light is blinking at a normal pace, then it between 20% and 75-80%.
When it is blinking very slowly, the battery is above 80%.

nah when it charges battery light is lit up white all time but when it blinks it could be because you got optimized mode enabled on power management it means that your battery is at 60% but charger keeps trying to charge more so light for battery will blink now and then but thats ok nothing to worry about :) since mine does this and i have this profile on to make life on battery hold longer when using AC more :)

 

y510p and y500 has same typ of design so battery indicatior is the same.

 

Note to ishaan; w.e you said doesn't work like this on y500-y510p :)

Refer to page 31 of the hardware maintenance manual of Y500. You will see the meaning of the lights or indicators. You should now see what your unit is doing while displaying the stated indicators.
