T470s shuts down all of a sudden at 50% battery life since April/May 2019

Hello everyone!


Perhaps you can help me/ recognise the issue.

Since an update in April/May 2019 (whether Windows 10 x64 or a Lenovo driver I am not sure), my T470s shuts down every time it reaches 50% batter life (small icon in Action Bar). I reckon it's when Battery 1 gets depleted and the device tries switching to Battery 2 - not sure.


I have already installed all Windows 10 updates, run Lenovo System Update twice, and reformatted the entire computer.

The problem persists.


Would you know what it's about?
