USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Interesting. Mine was rated 100ish, and on a first reset it became 93ish. A second reset brought it back to 100, which was very weird.

 

EDIT: Checked again, back to 93.25 without a reset. O.o

Why would the design capacity number change at all is beyond me.

See this post where I posted the solution to this non-issue. The system is working the way it is supposed to work based on factory settings. Your battery is perfectly fine.

Thanks!

 

Disabling Maximum lifespan mode changed design capacity reported  to 56.16Wh. Now I know how to prepare my battery for more intensive mobile sessions.
