[Ask for help] Battery problem on lenovo thinkpad x1 non-carbon (1294PG)

2018-02-20, 0:37 AM

I just installed a new non-genuine battery and I am experiencing problems with it on my laptop. Lenovo battery manager is showing the battery alternating between three different states: 

(0%, 100%, "error detected").

 

The blinking lamp battery indicator on the top cover of the laptop is alternating between blinking orange and green as well.

 

I have tried updating the battery firmware, but it says that I already have the newest update:

 

When I disconnect the laptop from AC, the laptop turns off immediately.

 

Did I install a defective battery?

 

I hopy you can help!

 

Regards.

Hi Amelscape and welcome to the community,

 

First of all, Lenovo firmware will not work on non-Lenovo batteries.

 

It does look like you have a defective battery, non-genuine batteries are a hit or miss as to whether they will work or not.  May I ask what was the problem with the original battery?

 

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave. Thanks for the answer. 

 

Yea, that's what I feared.

 

It seemed like my original battery had died on me after ~7 years of use.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Did it go bad over time or did it quit all at once?

Bad over time. Battery manager reports around 500 cycles though, which seems a bit low.
