Battery Charging stops randomly

2019-10-22, 3:28 AM



My ThinkPad X250 is acting strange

Whenever I connect external battery (battery on back side, it also has internal battery i.e., bridge battery technology), the power button blinks three times at random times and charging stops. Once I power-off and power-on the charging brick the charging begins and then stops randomly. It’s happening since last three days.


I’ve already reset by

Pressing reset button on back.

Removed BIOS battery and re-plugged.


But problem still persists.

Please suggest the appropriate remedial steps. Machine is out of warranty.


Specification :-

ThinkPad X250 i7 6500U, running Fedora 31 with 5.3.6-200.fc30.x86_64


512 GB SSD.



Thank You.

Hi GetGameIN1! Base on the list here: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd031426, the Thinkpad X250 is compatible with Ubuntu 14.04. Try booting to Windows and check if the issue is the same? Uninstall the battery driver under the Device manager. Run the update through the Vantage app and install all detected updates. Let us know how it goes.
