Battery Life

2009-12-27, 15:07 PM

For the past 2 days battery life is reading 96% although computer is plugged in.  Don't use computer for anything fancy, mostly emails.  Have only owned computer for 4 months.

Disconnect the AC adapter and let the battery drain below 95%, then reconnect it and it should charge.

 

The battery, by default, will not charge when its capacity is above 96% (look in the thinkvantage power manager under "Battery" and "Advanced" for settings on battery charging cycles). This setting is supposed to extend the batteries life.
