Hi I have had an AMD ThinkPad Edge 13 for around 2 months now. Today I have had an error message at boot saying my battery is not an official Lenovo battery and comes up with a warning in the battery icon. The laptop is plugged in, but isn't charging over 78%. Anyone know what is going on?

I've had exactly the same message on two occassions since having AMD Edge 13. The first time it happened, the very first time I charged the battery, I removed the it then put it back in and the 'error' dissapeared.
The second time occurred a month or so later. It seemed to occur when the battery was put on charge from a very low (sub 10%) level. I unplugged the mains and replaced it again a few moments later and the message dissapeared again.
I've some discomfort in ignoring this error message - it clearly shouldn't be happening, but I figured it may be something to do with charging from a very low capacity - maybe a software fault, rather than the hardware (battery).

I beleive that I have seen this in another thread. The link is below: There is an update that should fix this problem.
Have a look in the driver section.
All the Best,
