X1 Yoga: LED battery indicator turns green before full charge?

2016-10-17, 19:48 PM

There is a small LED indicator on the side right next to the charging plug that shows orange while the laptop is charging, and then turns green - presumably when the battery is full.  However, I've noticed that the indicator turns green before the battery is actually full.  Just now I saw that it was green, and then checked the status in the taskbar, which showed only 90% battery.  

 

Is this normal?  Are there settings that can be adjusted somewhere for this? 

 

Thanks.

Solved! See the solution

Hi,

 

From page 11 of the User's Guide:  "Green: The computer is connected to ac power and the charging status is 80%–100%. "

Thanks! Not how I would have designed it, but at least it's working as intended.
Cheers.
