I am new to the forum and seeking for a solution for my issue on T470. Following is a breif description of the issue.
I have a T470 runs with Windows 10 Pro. When it is not plugged into power, the battery starts discharging and I found that after about 30% of battery life is remaining, it jumps to 6% and prompts me low battery warning. Has anyone encountered the issue? Need your suggestions to solve my issue. Further, I have installed Lenovo Vantage and according to it all the Drivers and BISO are up to date.

The windows 10 - 1803 update screwed up a lot of Thinkpads with two batteries.
So, if the answer to the above question(s) is NO try this:
The same thing happened to me on my T480
Here is how I fixed it:
I may have some extra unnecessary steps in here, but I wanted to be sure I didn't screw it up:
If this fixes it, I could use a Kudo - I'm in a contest with a co-worker ;-)

Does your machine only have one battery?
If so I don't think pulling it is required, I just wanted to be safe.
If you have not done it already, You might also want to to into Lenovo Vantage:
then --> Hardware settings --> Power --> Battery Gauge Reset --> perform reset.
this makes the system able to more accurately estimate the remaining charge in the battery(s).
If you do have two batteries you can only reset them one at a time.
