Re: yoga 3 pro battery calibration

You really should only calibrate your battery if it seems "miscalibrated". Sometimes this means it will never charge to 100% (Up to 95% is fine), or the laptop shuts off at 20%.

How long should the Battery Calibration Process take on the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro?

Follow the instructions exactly and set it aside for about 4 hours just to be on the safe side. It worked very well on my Yoga 3 Pro.

Re: yoga 3 pro battery calibration

The calibration took 12 hours on my Yoga 3.  So have plenty of time ready and do NOT cancel once you begin.  I learned the hard way and I only calibrated because it kept annoying me with warning messages.

 

The first time I calibrated I ran it overnight and in the morning it must have still been running, but is poorly designed with not telling you the status.  I forced a reboot by holding the power button for 10 seconds.  BAD MOVE.  I got the blue screen of death and had to load from a Window's Restore Point.  Big mess.  A few weeks later, after more annoying messages I did a successful calibration in 12 hours.

 

My battery icon still has a Red dot on the percentage of power left.  If anyone knows how to get rid of that, please advise.

The red dot is OKR nagging you to run a checkup.

 

Hope this helps!

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

I've run the OneKey checkup a dozen times and still have the red dot.  Currently shows the status as "Excellent" but the red dot won't go away.  Makes me want to remove the icon again but I missed seeing my battery %.

You may need to send it back to Lenovo to have a look at the battery

Re: yoga 3 pro battery calibration

I calibrated the battery 3-4 weeks ago. I received the message that it completed successfully. Now it's telling me to do it again. I don't want to send it back to Lenovo. It's a brand new PC and I have no idea how long I would be without it.
