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!

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?

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.
