Lenovo IdeaPad S540-14IML: Battery Problem

2020-09-06, 11:00 AM

Hi to all, I hope all is well with you guys.

I just wanted to ask if you encountered the same instance that I did yesterday with my unit.

Yesterday, as I was working on my laptop and my battery is about 35% remaining and suddenly it went black as if 

the battery suddenly ran out of power. When I pressed the power button to turn it on, it won't. So I immediately plugged it in and

the battery showed a 0% status. As if it drained suddenly. What do you think is the cause?

My routine with my unit is these;

-I charge it around 20%-25%, then unplug it when it hits 100%.

-I never drain my battery.

-I use almost 50-75% of brightness.

 

And now, I charged it again to 100% and showed only a 1.5 hour remaining time (as displayed in the image attached). Is my battery damaged or broken?

 

May I know your inputs on this, I appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

It happened again just now, I'm at 40% and it shuts down instantly. I cannot open it again unless I plug it in. 

Then it shows 0% battery life. Can someone help me please?

Thank you.

I think the best solution is to send the laptop in service, under warranty.

 

When it was new, what standby did you have?

 

I have the same model and I replaced the battery, with only 16 cycles, after 7 months, because it kept charged for a very short time.

 

The original battery was produced by Celexpert, and the new one by SMP.
