Battery Solution Win10

Is it just me, but since the 1l903 update for Windows 10 made possible to have the external battery discharge first? Now my internal battery only starts discharging when the external one "died".

Re: Battery Solution Win10

Discharge order per Lenovo employee is based on wear level of the battery.  Your internal battery probably has more cycles on it and it was just coincidence that the external started discharging first right after OS update.

I fell in love with Thinkpads, I really like the TrackPoint, it is extremely handy, my next notebook gonna be definitely the ThinkPad, currently own the T480 with MX150 and Graphics Dock Smiley Happy (for gaming)

Re: Battery Solution Win10

I really like Thinkpads too.  My first experience was my cousins work laptop IBM 760 C.  I saved for 2 years after that and got a 385D.  My work computers have been competitors and I dread typing on them or using their version of a trackpoint.  No middle scroll button for example.  I also like that i can upgrade/replace parts relatively easy on Thinkpads.  Unfortunately its less true today than years past.
