80% available(plugged in,not charging)

2010-10-25, 15:16 PM

I have Lenovo Ideapad Z560 Laptop.

When i charge battery of my laptop, it charges upto 80%..

On moving the cursor over the battery icon i found "80% available(plugged in,not charging)"..

Why it doesnt get charged upto 100%?

 

I m not understanding is it the problem with my laptop or it will charge only upto 80% and not 100%..

 

rgds

Solved! See the solution

That's usually a sign that the battery is having issues. It is reporting 80%, but will not receive any more current.

 

If you're under warranty, call up Lenovo, and they'll send you a new battery.

No problem. If it is out of warranty, or Lenovo doesn't come through, let me know and we'll try some other stuff.

Um, my Y560's Energy Management program lets me CHOOSE whether to charge to 100% to maximize RUN TIME, or charge to only 80% to maximize LIFETIME of the battery.  I set mine to 80%.   So I always see this  "80% available(plugged in,not charging)" message.  Just change it back to 100% if you like.

This helped me too

Nothing is wrong with your barrery as other guys said.. you have selected LONGER LIFESPAN BATTERY OPTION.. In this case it recharge battery to 80% to increase battery lifespan... Just change setting from Energy Management..
