Yoga 2 11 Running hot with short battery life

2016-08-19, 21:23 PM

My Yoga 2 11 bought had been getting good battery life (5-6 hours) but now (in an instant) it's draining very fast (1-2 hours MAX on a full charge) and it's unusually hot underneath. It's always been used on a clean, hard surface. Help???

Hi David_EMG  , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


It would help if you can generate a battery report ( ac charger unplugged). 

How is the battery health if you hover the cursor on the battery icon below?


Battery is a consumable part and depletes its resources in time and heat is one of the factors that can affect battery life. Try running hardware diagnostics along side with this and this test for comparison. 


Check the battery status LED indicator (page29) if it goes to the changes from amber blinking to solid white on full charge .  Calibration either using the energy manager via battery gauge reset can also help. Manually you can allow the battery to completely drain and wait for 1-2 hours and then charge it full.


Update us how things go.
