T480 Battery Gauge Reset Issue

2019-01-22, 21:34 PM

I ran the Battery Gauge Reset on a ThinkPad T480.  It finished the 100% charge on the internal battery about 9 hours ago, but the status is still at:

 

Remaning: 100%

Progress: Step 1 of 3: Calibrating to Full Charge

 

The task bar battery indicates that the battery is "100% and fully charged". 

 

It does not appear to have started step 2.

 

Do I let it run hoping it will get to step 2 or stop the reset?  Is there a negative impact to stopping the resest?

 

Thanks.

 

Mike

I have stopped the reset on my T480 several times due to work interruptions and not seen and bad side effects.

In your case there seems to be some error condition anyway, so I'd stop the reset let the battery discharge by a few percentage points and then try it again.

If my post helps a Kudo is appreciated, if I answer your question, please mark it ”Accepted Solution“ and give it a Kudo! ... Some years ago I worked for IBM. Currently I do not work for, nor do I speak for Lenovo or IBM.
