Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

So still not fixed, just a dirty BIOS hack.

Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

I also have a Thinkpad L380 Yoga and have the same problem.  Has this been fixed yet? Is there a temporary solution?

The fix is a new BIOS version that is coming in September.

Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

Hello, please help with the issue of Battery charge threshold regarding my new laptop Thinkpad A485.q 

I want to avoid sending it to depot as I will be without my laptop. 

 

Please help me understand why the internal battery is not charging to 100%? 

Please note that the battery is new and has had only 6 charge cycles in total. The battery charge threshold has not even been activated. battery charge threshold screenshot 1.PNG

Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

Wow, over a year since I started this thread, and it's still not fixed? I've been perfectly happy with using Lenovo Settings version 3.169.0.0, the battery charges have never once gone over what I have them set to (85%), and worked just fine right away when I switched to the extended 6 cell, too (after doing a few 100% charges with it).

Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

Dwayno, Thanks for your reply. May I ask how many 0%-100% charges do you do to correct the calculation?
Also, how often do you do them? Once a month?
Because my A485 (sibling to T480) is always plugged in.

Re: Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold

Hi ashai1994, what is the issue of your battery, Did you see battery charge threshold in Vantage?

When external battery is charged to full, you may need to re-plug the AC acdaptor to continue to charge internal battery.
