You may have a battery reset ( gauge reset ) option on the Power Management software. Check and try to reset it

Re: Lenovo Z51-70 Battery not charging

My battery age is 2 years. I am happy I got 6 months more time than your's. Seems Lenovo Z51-70 batteries are of poor quality. But the official site of Lenovo provides a powerful fact that "Today's battery can have a maximum life of 2 years and after 2 years they may fail at any time". Now I have to go to support center to replace my battery. You should feel happy because I lost HDD after just one year. Z51-70 is a combination of low life hardware. Please message me if you have replaced|want to replace battery. Because I too have exact same problem. We can help each other by sharing information regarding our Laptop's situation. Thank you for your post. 

After seeing your post I am feeling like something killed our batteries ? Are they really damaged or is this some technical issue ? 

Oh my God...

Re: Lenovo Z51-70 Battery not charging

I have the same laptop and the problem suddenly popped up in the last 2 days. prior to that, it was giving backup of 2:30-3:00 hours, but now, the situation is worst, it drains out in just 20minutes or even less. The customer service is pathetic.
I still have the additional warranty of 2 years but the technical assistant said that won't be covered. However, the warranty term reads:

"Extended Warranty Agreement covers components installed in your Covered Product at the time of purchase, including the internal central processing unit, integrated hard disk drive, integrated optical drive, integrated keyboard, integrated pointing devices, integrated LCD screen, optional features installed by Lenovo at the time of purchase, and other components that Lenovo includes as a standard feature with the Covered Product."

Isn't a battery standard product with any laptop? 
and rightly said it seems that Lenovo just manufactures products to last for a year.
I will never recommend anyone to go for Lenovo products because finally, they are not going to get the service as they need.

Re: Lenovo Z51-70 Battery not charging

Batteries are not covered in warranty beyond certain period of time after purhase date. I think it is 1 year for Laptop battery (matches with base warranty). For mobiles it is 6 months only. However recently Lenovo introduced a new warranty scheme called as "sealed-battery-warranty-extension". I think Lenovo Z51-70 comes under this category. I think it is not eligible because it is old model and we are in India (not US). 

 

I am sure Extended Warranty will not cover battery otherwise everyone will buy it as batteries may fail anytime after 2 years in most cases. Coming to quality of Lenovo products I will say one thing. F@CK Lenovo India.  I bought Lenovo Z51-70. Hard disk failed after 1 year. Battery failed after 2 years. I bought Lenovo K6 Power mobile. Adapter failed after 1 year. Data cable failed after 1 year. From the heart and brain I say NO to Lenovo, NEVER AGAIN IN FUTURE I AM GOING TO WASTE MY MONEY.

Lenovo has only two Exclusive Repair Centers. One in Bengaluru, another in Hyderabad. Remaining are Lenovo aithorised third party service centers. I won't expect good service from my near by authorised service center as the problem is with "sealed-battery-replacement". I have decided to go Hyderabad. I will update my experience after that.
