Two batteries naming issue ("Battery 0, Battery 1" instead of "Battery1, Battery 2")

2017-11-23, 4:01 AM

Hi guys. I have a T470 and after the latest Windows update I encountered a battery naming issue. Before the update batteries had proper order and were named accordingly: battery 1, battery 2, no surprises here. But after the update I noticed the order has changed to battery 0, battery 1 (attached pic below) Yeah yeah, I understand arrays start at zero but what is that? I was just wondering is it just me or you guys have the same situation going on with your batteries? Is there a way to change the order back to "normal"?

I have this on my laptop too, on Win10 build 1709. Not sure what is the cause - probably Microsoft screwed up the battery enumeration logic.

Unfortunately the issue still presents after the current Cumulative update (11/30/17).

I also have same issue on top of the main issue of "slow charging" by main battery. I also updated the windows 10 day before and after windows update, battery naming changed to battery 0 and battery 1. Image attached.
