X1 Yoga (3rd gen) - battery charge tomfoolery?

2018-10-30, 14:03 PM

Hello,

Has anyone ever had this happen before?

 

As the title of the post suggests, I have a 3rd gen X1 Carbon Yoga (still under warranty) and yesterday the following happened. This is the second time since I have owned it.

 

I had used the battery down to about 20% and turned it off.

 

I then plugged in the charger and the red i dot on the ThinkPad logo blinked a couple times.

 But! The charge light didn't light up ... right away at least.

 

I waited about 30 sec, and then turned the laptop on to see if it showed as charging. 

As soon as I pushed the power button, the charge light came on instantly.

 

I saw that it said "plugged in, charging" on the battery icon, so I powered down.

The charge light remained on.

 

I left it plugged in all night. And when I looked at it the next morning, the charge light was still on.

??

 

I powered on, and to my dismay, the laptop hadn't charged at all! But it said "plugged in, charging" on the battery icon again.

So, I powered down and waited. 

 

Within about 30 minutes, the charge was up to the 80% I have the charge capped at through the Lenovo Power Manager.

 

What could cause that?

Has anyone here experienced this sequence of events before?

I don't have a solution for this, but for anyone else who finds this thread, there seems to be a longer thread with similar behavior over here:

I'm hoping that thread might get a solution eventually if it receives enough posts & views.

Hi SyneRyder! Welcome to our forums community. We can not really tell what happen there. Just to clarify, are you still having the same issue or not? If not, we suggest you to install all available updates through the Lenovo Vantage app. You can get it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/lenovo-vantage/9wzdncrfj4mv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab.

Seems to be resolved now for me, it hasn't happened in a long time, but I'm not sure what fixed it. My guess is it was one of the updates via Lenovo Vantage, though I did also try tweaking some power settings in Vantage as well.  I'll keep an eye on it, but seems to be fixed now!
