Vantage Battery Status Issue T480

2019-03-10, 1:51 AM

In Lenovo Vantage I"ve been getting some strange readings from my second battery. Every 3 minutes or so the second battery's status display goes blank and I lose most of the battery's information readouts.

Some how I don't think this is normal activity and it seems like the battery is losing it's connection to the computer despite the fact that the battery's charge status is still being reported in the windows power widget. In addition the internal battery seems to like to drain first instead of the hot swap battery. I've read several forum posts on how Vantage drains from the battery that has more wear first but the internal battery has drained 3 times and the external has yet to drain first. This is what the battery status looks like in between these "grey out" episodes.

I'd appreciate any help.
