Re: Yoga 13 battery won't charge

Out of curiosity, when did you purchase this laptop and what is the manufacture date on the laptop?

I am having this same problem. I purchased my yoga 13 a ~month ago. August 3rd, and then received my laptop at the end of August. (It took so long apparently due to it being on back order). The manufacture date is 13/07/13.

I plugged my laptop in yesterday for 3 hours, and it sat at ~50% for some time. Called Lenovo and they told me to uninstall the Energy Management software and uninstall the battery in Device Manager. This evening, the same issue occured, however, now it is at 99%, and won't move. It has been like this for an hour at least.

This is a bit worrying, as I am a student, and put a lot of research into purchasing this laptop so I wouldn't encounter any issues while I was at school.

Is the power adapter functioning?

I called Technical Support and they say that probably problem with the charger and they sending me new one.
But I dont know that charger is faulty because when I connect it to the socket its getting warmer like it used to do.

But I dont have any other lenovo laptop to try it if its works.

Re: Yoga 13 battery won't charge

lead_org, The battery icon says the power adapter is "plugged in, not charging" which tells me that it still recognizes the power adapter, but there is either not enough voltage to get the battery to charge. Or there is something wrong with the battery.

ramzes, My charger is cool to the touch when it is plugged in to the socket, and my laptop.

@Quevo, you mean your battery is not charging to 100% (and stuck at 99%)? That is normal, this is done to prevent your laptop from overcharging.

My battery wouldn’t charge but the battery said it is 100 but unplugging the cord the whole power shuts off.
