After perusing the recent 2016/2017 comments by multiple users on similar posts about Ideapad Z510 battery from across locations/countries - it appears that the firmware that you had issued last year - has somehow got overwritten / superceded maybe in either late 2016 or early 2017 by some more recent/latest updates.
I am writing from India and facing the same probem that the battery is showing 100% and then going off almost immediately. This probem had fortunately got solved last year when you had issued a firmware update - but now when i am trying to use the same files again - it basically conveys that "no battery available to update" because that particular firmware is already applied on our laptop.
Hence, can you please release newer firmware update for this same issue - using a z510 system having current till-date updates for different OS - win 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 - same way as you have released for thinkpad series of laptops too on the weblink - http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds001322
Come to think of it - that if a fully working battery is being "prompted" as weak and "need to buy" - but actually is a fully functioning hardware - isnt it a bit of a letdown for your users??? - what to say of some who might have already bought and replaced with newer replacement batteries - which is actually a completely avoidable cost? I am sure you need to resolve this issue soon so as to restore confidence that you are not only a big brand but also a responsive brand - who is reading and resolving its forum posts!!!
thanks in advance.

Lenovo please provide us a quick solution. It's very problematic, I lost all my unsaved data. If I continuously plugin charger it'll damage my battery by overcharging.
Please, Lenovo's reputation is at stake.

They abandoned all z510 users..They only care about recent under warranty products...they are not providing any update because they want us to buy new products from them..
you are daydreaming lenovo..i would not buy or reccomend buying your products ever again to my family and friends..your buisness strategy is very cheap and unprofessional..

Same Here. The problem is back. Battery says 0% in spite of having charge. Boot into BIOS & the Laptop stays for over an hour (on battery only) but crashes immediately in Windows.
Lenovo needs to provide a firmware patch again!
