Question

I noticed the battery indicator light on my newly purchased Z460 blinking with varying frequencies - sometimes the light blinks very quickly, and even changes from amber to white. What do these indicate?

 

Answer

The following is a guide to to the Z460 Battery status indicator lights


Blinking amber: (500ms off/1s on)
The remaining power of the battery is less than 5% of its capacity.


Blinking amber: (100ms off/3.2s on)
The battery is being charged with the remaining power between 5% and 20% of its capacity.


Amber:
The computer is operating on battery power with the remaining power between 5% and 20% of its capacity.


Blinking white:
The battery is being charged with the remaining power between 20% and 80% of its capacity.


White:
The remaining power of the battery is more than 80% of its capacity, or the computer is operating on battery power with the remaining power between 20% and 80% of its capacity.
