T480: AC Power Status Indicator is Amber when not connected to AC Power

2020-03-13, 23:14 PM

According to the T480 user guide:


9 ac power status indicator

    This indicator shows the ac power and charging status of the computer.

     White: connected to ac power (battery power 90%–100%)

     Amber: connected to ac power (battery power 0%–90%)

     Off: not connected to ac power


What does it mean when I am NOT connected to AC power and the power status indicator is amber?
