My battery is at 0% available, plugged in charging, but it never goes about 0%. I've tried resetting the battery gauge in Energy Manger 220.127.116.11 but that only runs for a few seconds and reports that the gauge reset is complete. I've also disabled the ACPI control in device manager then enabling it and the icon appears to be charging but only for a few seconds then stops. Having conservation mode on or off doesn't seem to make any difference.
The latest BIOS is installed and I believe I have the latest version of Energy Manager.
Anyone else having this problem?

I've experienced this a couple times on my new Yoga 2 as well. The first instance, it just started charging again after about an hour of use. The second time, I rebooted after about an hour of it being plugged in and not charging, and once I reached the desktop, the battery showed 43%, but still not charging.. So i guess it was actually charging the whole time without showing it?
After about 2 days of ownership, I've decided to do a clean install of windows 8.1 followed by loading all the necessary drivers listed on lenovo's product page, and I can happily say this 0% plugged in not charging thing hasn't happened again.

I just did a factory restore using Onekey and my battery is still not charging. I've installed all the drivers on the support page except for the Energy Manager since my version is newer 18.104.22.168. Not sure what eles I can do.

download an iso of windows 8.1, make a bootable usb using a utility like Rufus with the iso (make sure usb is in FAT32 format or it won't boot. If for some reason the utility only formats to NTFS like in my case, then copy the files out of the usb, manually format to FAT32 and transfer files back on), plug in, boot from usb, and install. I'll save you a lot of painful searching and link you to the particular windows 8.1 iso that our OEM laptops require for fresh installs. Don't worry about inputting windows 8.1 product key, the installation will automatically detect it from the bios.

It's probably good practice to verify the hash before installing

What do you mean by verifying the hash? I tried the download but the file was only 383k so I think I downloaded the wrong file. It was an exe file and not an iso.
I'm gonna stop messing around with this problem for now until my vacation is over. Trying to download updates over hotel wifi is slow. Anwayay, thanks for your help yangrytuna!
