Yoga 2 13 charging battery issue

Starting recently whenever my yoga 2 13 battery starts to get low and I plug it in to charge say at around 10-20%, the battery suddenly drops down to 0% and says "plugged in, charging" but doesnt actually charge. And if I unplug it, the computer instantly powers down and the only way to get it to charge is to shut it down and than turn it back on again.

 

Please help was wondering if this was an issue with my yoga 2 13's battery or the charger or even something else entirely.

Re: Yoga 2 13 charging battery issue

I also have started having this issue with my Yoga 2 11.

Actually just now as I'm typing this message the problem occured. After registering, it seems to charge after dropping to 0%, but my battery was originally at around 40% 

 

I'd rather not have my battery drop every time i plug it in.

Note: Also seems to be charging really fast after holding a 0% charge for a while. Went from 6% to 12% by the time i finished typing this message.

 

 

Note: This doesn't happen everytime and has happened twice during the couple weeks ive owned this laptop.

Re: Yoga 2 13 charging battery issue

I am having the issue with my Yoga 2 11 as well. Less than a month old. Left on charger the entire night and it still says 0, but yet working without being plugged in.The Lenovo battery app says that the battery is in perfect condition. I've been working on computers for over 20 years and not had this problem,

Is it saying 0%, plugged in not charging?
