T470s BATTERY 1 drains to 5%, BATTERY 2 stays at 100% (BATTERY PRIORITY)

Hello everyone!

 

Not sure if this is an issue but it's surely annoying to know, that battery N1 drains at 5% and the other stays at 100%.

 

Is it possible for a mixed discharge between both batteries ?

After all the LIFE of the first battery (while using battery only power) is shortened a lot!

 

Is there any option in LENOVO VANTIGE that I am no aware of ?

I looked everywhere and i can't find anything..

 

Bios latest update 1.30

 

Thank you very much!

Sorry  but see below post.  Basically you cant set discharge order.  The laptop checks battery wear and bases discharge order on that.  Many people including myself have asked for a BIOS switch or at least an option on discharge order but nothing has happened so far and I dont think its going to happen either.  I do not speak for Lenovo..
