Yoga 13 and battery is plugged in, not charging.

anyone else have this?  Just started last night after having the device for a few days.  As the battery is sealed up, I can't access it....

Re: Yoga 13 and battery is plugged in, not charging.

What is the charge level? If it is more than 60%, then the battery will start charging when battery level goes below 60%. This would be valid if the battery setting has been set to maximum lifespan in energy management. If optimize for runtime had been selected and it still doesnt charge or in the eatlier option below 60% it is not charging, then you would have to take laptop to support.

Thanks for the reply.  It is at 57%.  Arugh!!!  I have tried removed the ACPI Battery driver from the device manager and it doesn't do anything....

 

anything else it could be?  And that also concerns me if it hangs are anything above 60%

Actually, you gave good advice!  I changed my "Energy Management" settings and that did the trick!  I had it for Battery Health and changed it to Maximum Battery Life.

 

Thanks!

I am having the same problem for the record. Charges up to 60 %. Meter shows plugged in but not charging? Changing power options has no effect. Thanks,

Geoffrey

Re: Yoga 13 and battery is plugged in, not charging.

Hi all,

I have a brand new i7 Yoga 13 running windows 8 from Best Buy. As soon as it booted up, I have not been able to charge my battery. As I hover over the icon, it says "Plugged in and Charging" but it does not include a percentage. I have had it plugged in overnight, and if I unplug the computer, it will die immediately. I have tried updating energy managment and setting it to "Maximum battery life," but nothing changes. Thoughts?

Thanks

Exact same thing for me yesterday.  Further, the 'battery status' under energy managment says 'destroyed'.  Everything was fine two days ago.

Re: Yoga 13 and battery is plugged in, not charging.

Bought my Yoga 13 at the end of October 2012. Still works as expected except for the battery.

Around the end of February, the battery charges to 89% only. It won't charge any higher.

I'm afraid this is going to continue on a downward spiral with no fix in the future other than to send in the unit to Lenovo for a battery replacement.

 

What is Lenovo going to do about this?

A superb product like the Yoga deserves a superb battery.
