Thank you Rydeen. Waiting patiently, just checking if there was any update or rough timeframe (weeks or months)?

Dear customers,

as I checked, next week end (Dec. 8, 2017) is the release target date.  Stay tuned.

So as Rydeen posted, the BIOS update was indeed published today, version 1.43-1.29

However, changelog only reads this:

 

<1.43>
UEFI: 1.43 / ECP: 1.29
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where fan might rotated with max speed due to not reading CPU
temperature correctly.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where PCI LAN might disappeared on boot menu after SCCM OS deployment.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where system might not boot to OS when attached an external monitor
and its USB3 devices.
- (Fix) Fixed an issue where network boot might happened at reboot after resume from suspend
by Wake On LAN.

 

I can't see anything in regard to battery issues we are discussing (I didn't update my system just yet).

Can you check/confirm that is fixed?

I'm sorry to confuse you.

The battery charge threshold issue solution will be provided by Lenovo Companion, not by BIOS.

Hello,

 

I would like to ask when the mentioned fix will be released?

As for now nothing has changed unfortunately. It makes no sense to discharge the internal battery first. 

I've bought a double-battery notebook mainly to be able to replace external battery while still working.

Now it's not possible.

 

T470 20HD, BIOS 1.43

Dear customers,

As my understanding, the solution will be included in the Lenovo Vantage (used to be called as "Lenovo Companion").  If your system is not updated to Lenovo Vantage, please visit Microsoft's Windows Store and get it to update.
