Thinkpad X1 Carbon gen4 battery "plugged in, not charging"

Thinkpad X1 carbon gen4 (2016) battery won't charge. Message shows "plugged in, not charging".

Just performed a windows 10 (64bit) clean re-install and the problem was still there.

All drivers are up to date, and the Lenovo settings UWP app was installed. Battery threshold was turned off (and double checked by looking into the registry).

Re: Thinkpad X1 Carbon gen4 battery "plugged in, not charging"

Have you ever set a battery charge threshold?


What happens if you let the battery discharge from the 47% in your screenshot, and then plug it in again?  Will it recharge to ~47%?  Or will it then be stuck at the new (lower) level?
