Thinkpad Yoga 370 battery discharge

2019-08-29, 13:53 PM

I have a 2017 Yoga 370.  The battery suffers from random rapid discharge.  90% of times all is fine, but I can leave it fully charged, turn it off and find that it only has 50% charge a few days later then find that the battery suddenly drops to 1% charge after about 30 mins use then goes out complely.  Any ideas?

Hi !


In a healthy battery, ions flow freely between a cathode and an anode and batteries degrade even if you don't use them. Hence, if you're able to use the machine within a certain time there's no need to worry. Just make sure that your BIOS version is up to date to avoid problems specially the battery usage.
