Lenovo x230 battery problem

Question: Lenovo x230 battery problem

I've bought the Lenovo X230 with the broken battery (the PM showes 68% charging and no more, asks for the battery replacement). I've tried 3 different good-working batteries from X220 which were supposed to work on X230, but they don't. When starting the laptop with that battery, it stops with the information:" The battery installesd is not supported by this system and will not charge. Please replace the battery with the correct Lenovo battery for this system. Press the ESC to continue". And after pressing the ESC key, it starts to work, but the PM still writes that the battery is not correct and it doesn't charge. What could it be?

Answer: Lenovo x230 battery problem

Hi,x230 doesn't support the batteries of old 29 series (x220 did). Only hw protected batteries 44 series are being supported by x230 (and 19+ series, external).Batteries of 29 series can only be discharged in x230.Try to perform the original (x230's) battery reset using Lenovo power manager feature.

I recently purchased an x230 and everything is perfect but the battery fit.  It moves up and down slightly.  I know there are many posts in the lenovo forums for all different models that the battery fits lose in "x" model and solutions of putting paper / foam / tape to make the battery fit tighter.   What I'm wondering is if anyone has actually had the problem fixed by lenovo.  I've read a few posts where a user has had the base piece of the case replaced (where the battery fit's into) and that has solved the problem.  I'm still within my return period on my x230 and am awaiting a call back from tech support to see if there is anything they will do but I don't think I will keep it if they can't fix it.   I'm just curious has anyone actually had luck by replacing the base piece.  From what i've read a replacement battery hasn't worked for anyone.  Also, I know everyone says its by design for thermal purposes but I haven't actually seen any official confirmation of this from lenovo.   Thanks.  

Answer:Battery Loose / Battery wiggle in x230 and LENOVO ...

As a follow up, I'm just curious if this is a widespread issue?  Anyone have loose battery in their x230 / x220?  I'm not talking about it falling out...but just a few millimeters of wiggle room.  Basically when i pick mine up or place it down, I can feel / hear the battery move.  I'm just trying to get an idea if this is a real problem or thats just how every thinkpad is.  I called support and they are sending someone to replace the base panel and we'll see if that fixes it.  I'll update this post when it get's replaced.   Edit* I also asked the lenovo support rep if they had heard of this issue and they said no, never.  I don't see how this is possible as if you do a google search for thinkpad loose battery there are many results.

I have a Lenovo X230, running Kubuntu 14.04. When I disconnect the slice battery at the bottom the system resets, it's very annoying. What's worse is that it seems like jostling the system, also can cause it to power cycle. I don't really have a need to remove the slice battery very often, but essentially if I put the laptop into standby, and put it in by laptop knapsack, the system is off after I get where I'm going. Thoughts? I saw somewhere that allegedly, when you unlock the battery, some thinkpad utility gets notified to switch the power, I wonder if the hotplug is a software only solution, and not doable in standby. Steve Ramage

Hi everyone, hope you can help me out with this issue I am having.  I bought a new X230 a couple weeks ago along with the additional 6 cell slice battery. However, I have been having a problem.  When the slice battery runs out the system won't go into sleep; instead when I close the lid on the laptop it turns off completely and when I reboot it all of the programs / app have closed.  It's like the system has a hard power off when that happens. When I reboot, I get this message that says: "Battery 2: There is an error."  Clicking on the replacement options links goes to a 404 page.  (Thanks Lenovo!)  http://screencast.com/t/LLlmqaQ1NJ5k Looking in the Lenovo Solution Center in these cases the secondary battery is listed as "not available".  http://screencast.com/t/PlYdomKZU Anything I should try or should I be getting a new battery from Lenovo?  Is this a common problem?

Answer:Lenovo X230 Slice battery error and problems

Hey there!
 
Can you tell us what model (machine type) of X230 do you have and what operating system it is running? The machine type can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the unit. This will help me assit you with the errors you are recieving.
 
Also, have you checked your power manager settings? It is possible to have a PM setting to turn the laptop off when the lid is closed and/or when the slice battery dies.

Hi,I have a Lenovo X230, S/N ********, type 2325 , now with 2 years and less than 2 months (with 4 year warranty extension).From new I bought this computer with two batteries, and from day one of the batteries was loose (I never complained because I was making my master degree and then one year erasmus).And the paint on my computer is peeling of, as you can see in photos.From day one this computer is used on a sleeve, and taken with care.My old T410s is like new and never was threated like this one.I called IBM Portugal for assistance (due to a screen problem) and to see this issues.The answer was "yes you have a defect on the paint and in the battery (1mm shorter on the sides!), but we can't do nothing, since we only repair hardware, you must open a claim case with lenovo.Guess what?The email for Portugal doesn't work, the phones provided are for IBM and I can't find a way to claim...I guess this isn't a way to threat someone who pays 1200eur for a laptop.If some mod can open opening a case I would thank.

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned.  Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. I've done so, be it doesn't seem to have helped. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode.  At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops.  Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Hi,
 
I bought a genuine x220/x230 battery. After I power on the laptop, I got a message: the laptop doesn't support this battery. I tried to update the bios but nothing happend. The power manager said the battery voltage, performance, cycles, LGC battery. If I unplugged the laptop, it is works so the laptop can use the battery just not charge. If it was not a genuine battery I can't see these description or I should also?
 
Maybe this is not compatible with my x230 because it compatible just x220 and the seller didn't know it? 
 
I attached some photo about the problem. If anyone know anything about it please help me. Thanks.

Answer:Thinkpad X230 'The battery installed is not supported and will not charge' problem

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The X230 requires the 44-series batteries, which incorporated some new circuitry with which the x230 interacts. As you've found, the X230 will run from a charged 29-series battery, but will not recharge it. The X220 originally came with series 29-series batteries, but also works with the newer 44-series.

Dear support, My Thinkpad X230 (NZD78MH 12.5", 3520M, 180GB, W7) recently started to frequently overheat. It happens during rather normal operation, such as browsing the internet or playing video on youtube. This causes the fan to run on maximum capacity and computer processes to slow down significantly.  As the image shows below, taken after playing a random youtube video, temperatures of ~103°C are typical.  Should I have it serviced?

Hello. I have a Thinkpad X230. I'm trying to drive video to a Samsung LCD TV via the mini displayport,with a mini displayport  --> hdmi adaptor (i've tried two adaptors now). The X230 detects the the Samsung TV when connected, both in the Sound and in the Graphics Properties. You can hear the connect / see the PC screen flash when the cable is plugged in. Unfortunately I can't get any sound or video on the TV. (I just tried connecting to a Dell Monitor and was able to get it to work.) The TV takes HDMI from my Dell laptop just fine on the same cable/input to the TV.The other problem is that in trying to adjust settings, now when I plug in the HDMI cable via the adaptor, the PC screen goes blank, it seems to be trying to make the TV primary, and the TV is getting the signal, so I have to pull the cable out to get the PC display back. Any ideas on setting / adjustments? ThanksAlan

Hi guys, I have had my x230 thinkpad laptops for two months now. The laptop suddenly just switches itself off without any indication of needing charging, there was no beebs sounded nor a flash or  blink indicating battery low, it just suddenly dies. i.e switched off. The only way of bringing it back up of course is plugging the power lead back in until it's fully charged. I'm currently running Vmware vsphere ESXi and  Citrix Xenserver, the question here is: - Is there a way of setting the battery indicator / button to beep perhaps via BIOS when battery is low ? - shouldn't the battery indicator button i.e. the one by the left show orange or blink orange before die-ing out ? - I understant I'm running some kind of Linux / Cent OS i.e. being vsphere or Citrix Xen would this affect the battery indicator not to show before dieing ? I also have windows 7 professional currently running on another x230 laptop, I will test to see whether the battery indicator button on that one indicate anything before dieing. Any ideas renderd is appreciated.  

Answer:x230 Battery indicator button does not work nor indicate battery low before dieing

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your Lenovo ThinkPad X230 suddenly turns off without any low battery indication.
 
Update Power manager and Power management driver to the latest version and check the status of the battery in Power manager.
 
Try doing a battery reset. It involves charging your battery to 100%, and then discharging it completely to 0%. Once that?s done you charge it back to 100% to complete the calibration.
Please note that battery reset is a time consuming process. So I would suggest you to do it overnight. Change the power plan settings to ensure that system doesn?t enter sleep or hibernate during the reset.
Refer this document to understand how to perform a battery gauge reset.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

The other day I was using my x230 on battery (Sanyo 9-cell) , and the level dropped suddenly from 40% to 6%, so I decided to do a battery gauge reset. The charging has been stuck at 99% for a couple of hours now and I'm concerned that it will never reach 100% so that the reset moves to phase 2 where it discharges the battery. I've noticed before that the battery never went past 99%, but it seemed like a minor detail, but for the sake of resetting the battery gauge, it seems essential that it reaches 100%. Any insights on this? Should I leave the reset functionality running in hope that it knows what it's doing? How many hours can it take to go from 99% to 100%? thanks Vicentiu

I would suggest you to follow the below troubleshooting steps.
 
Go to control panel -> Device manager. Under batteries tab, uninstall Microsoft ACPI Compliant control method battery, restart the system and check if battery charges properly.
 

Shutdown, unplug AC and remove battery. Press and hold power button for several seconds. Then re-install battery and AC and restart and see.
Download latest Power Manager and Power Management driver.
Uninstall Power Manager and Power Management driver that is already installed.
Reboot the laptop
Install Power Manager and Power Management driver
Reboot laptop again and see if helps.

Go to Power manager -> Battery tab in advanced view -> Battery maintenance -> Select always fully charge ->Ok and restart the system.
 
Ensure that the system is plugged-in and that battery firmware is up-to-date.  Check the Lenovo support site for any battery firmware updates for your particular model.  Perform battery gauge reset.  This will allow the battery to relearn available capacity. Update BIOS to the latest level.
 
Regarding Mic, check if it is working fine with windows sound recorder or is it just an issue with Skype alone. Go to control panel -> Sound. Under the recording tab, check if you have enabled the mic.

I've just moved this from an old threat that died out a year ago.  1. Just bought a new X230, and my 6 cell battery is a little loose! Rang up support, and they were a bit skeptical and not too helpful - wanted a photo of the problem! So I'm waiting for an email so that I can send them some photos. But I expect them to say it isn't enough of a problem - but let's see.  This is the 7th TP I've owned since 2000, and the first one I've bought new, and never had any such problem. The service I've had from IBM was excellent, that that seems to have somewhat disappeared with the move to Lenovo.  2. Just received the email, sent the photos, and after a chat with support they decided that there is nothing to interfere with the working of the machine, and that such movement is quite normal. I mentioned that at present there is no interference with the working of the machine, but in time such movement may cause problems with the contacts between the battery and the machine, but they didn't agree. I also mentioned that it is clearly a question of poor workmanship - no previous thinkpad I've owned has ever had this problem, so the 'normal' movement' is not 'normal'. So how does one take this further 'up the ladder'?  If I don't get any joy with this complaint, then I'm putting the X230 on eBay, and buying a Mac! 

Answer:X230 with loose battery

Update: The support chap has sent a 'template' of my complaint 'upstairs'.  They'll contact me later about this. So let's see 1) if they do; 2) what they say.

Hi, I've been looking around for a laptop with the best battery life on the market and I've read the ThinkPad x230 ( http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/laptop/thinkpad/x-series/x230/ ) has a quite high battery life, I was wondering how to achieve that, on this site here; http://blog.laptopmag.com/all-day-strong-longest-lasting-notebooks  it says it can achieve even up to 20 hours and 46 minutes with a 9 cell battery and sheet batteries, so I've looked around for the 9 cell battery on your website and I found out it can be ordered with the laptop or separately so that's not a problem but the problem is with the battery sheet, as far as I am aware, the only one that supports the inbuilt battery is the 6 cell battery sheet here  http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-76758 but I am still unsure how it all works, if I got the 6 sheet cell battery along with the 9 cell battery with the laptop would they somehow combine their battery life and work as one and when I charge the battery sheet would it charge both of the batteries and indicate the level of both on the battery sheet? will it really achieve 20 hours of battery life without me having to change any settings in the laptop to draw power from another power source (if i left the laptop on and unattended)? I'm really looking forward to buying this laptop if the batteries join and work as one and can get up to 20 hou...

Answer:x230 Best Battery Life

Hi Eryklok,Thought I share my experience with you. I have an x220 with a 6cell battery. It is rated at a 7 hour battery life. Though, I find that the only way you can achieve that battery life is when you bring down the display really low to 1-3 levels out of 15. It gets pretty dark then. But if you're in an office environment the bright lights above should make reading text a manageable task. Not optimal, but of you are really in a crunch and want to save on battery life. Else you could vary the brightness to 50% and you should get close to the 7 hours with light usage. With max brightness, I normally get apporximately 5-6 hours of battery life.As I understand it, the newer processors are really power efficient so should have to worry too much about that. I would recommend seeking a 9cell battery option opposed to the slice battery option. Due to the compromise and the added weight factor. Perhaps that could last you and you could factor a charge at your desk at the end of each work day.Generally speaking, you should get fairly decent performance out of box. Of course this is dependant on your workload on the processor.

Question: X230 Battery Issue

Hi - possibly having some issues with my battery. I've owned the system (X230) for under a year, but the battery life has dropped off significantly since I purchased the machine. I ordered it with a 9 cell, 94WHr battery... As of right now, grabbing the battery report from Windows (the utility bundled with 8) tells me that my laptop is capable of full charge to 75WHr, and the rated capacity is about 86WHr. Now, the funny thing is, according to the same report, I've only been on battery for about 117 Hours... Which any conservative estimate - saying 5 hours per full charge, would put it only at about 25 cycles. I've attached the battery report as a link for anybody that cares to have a look over it on my Google Drive. Save it to your desktop (antivirus, if necessary), and have a look. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6cMyYBAjcPJY0NiNjVxU2hPV0E/edit?usp=sharing Any advice on this issue would be quite welcome, thanks.

Answer:X230 Battery Issue

Hey there i've been having the same problem as well! I dont know whether its something wrong with the battery or my cpu as its constantly showing about 10% usage. Luckily i have a 3 year warranty so I can order a new one but it seems strange that the battery life can suddenly decrease from over 10 hours to about 6-7

Hi, I own a Lenovo X230 with an I5 3320. I noticed that the CPU stays at 1,2 ghz when I remove the Battery and the Charger (default 65 Watt)  is connected. This i a kind of annoying because I normaly remove the battery my I use a Laptop in my at home.But with just 1,2 ghz the Laptop is kind of slow so the battery has to remain in the Laptop.I set every energy option to maximum performance but the CPU only uses a multiplikator of 12.I also took a picture of the problem:[URL=http://www.imagebanana.com/view/boihv3vt/lenovoproblem.png][IMG]http://img6.imagebanana.com/img/boih...

Answer:X230 oly 1,2 GHZ when Battery removed

hi.
 
the cpu running at 1.2ghz when running without an installed battery has been part of the design for a long time. my 1.8ghz A31p does that and pretty much every ThinkPad i've had since has done the same thing. at least of those i've tested. i don't think there is any way to change this behavior short of hacking bios/ec code. highly not advised.
 
so, if you don't want the speed cap, leave the battery in. if you're trying to extend the life of the battery by removing it, set recharge thresholds in Power Manager accordingly instead. i set mine to not begin charging until the battery drops below 40% and then to recharge fully.
 
hth a bit.

Hi, I have a problem with battery on my 1 year old X230 (currently on Windows 8.1). My battery is behaving weird lately. Once it is fully charged, it stays at 100% for let's say 3-4 hours and after that it'll go to zero really quickly. What can I do to fix that? Additionally, my fingerprint sensor just stopped working a few months ago. Just like that. Thinkvantage fingerprint sensor cannot detect it anymore. What can cause that?  Thank you. -enero

Answer:X230 battery not discharging

Hi,unfortunately Lenovo doesn't offer Power Manager application for win8 as well the OS doesn't allow to check out battery settings we need using built-in tools.Perhaps installation of Power Manager for win7 in compatibility mode will show you the battery statistics. I mean a cycle count. This one of the key statistic parameters.What to do? 1. Perform a battery reset. No problem in win7 but even in compatibility mode PM might not allow to do that. But I didn't check.2. As the win8 keeps the battery fully charged all the time, it decreases the battery healthy. Solution is to set the battery charge threshold. Again, it's possible but not in PM under win8. Only 3rd party tools do that. Also there are tons attempts to change the registry settings for that purpose here on forum but I can't confirm a success.Regarding the FPR if you don't see anything unusual in BIOS Setup and Device Manager solution is standard - remove and reinstall FPR sw. If that will not resolve an issue disassemble keyboard and palmrest and check out ribbon cable from FPR and its connect to the systemboard.

Hello guys I am ready to order ThinkPad x230 from Lenovo.de but the only option for the battery is 29, 29+ and 29++. Will there be a problem or can I continue with the order?

Answer:Thinkpad X230 and 29++ battery

The ThinkPad X230 uses 44, 44+ or 44++ batteries. The 29 series batteries are only made for ThinkPad X220. The 29 batteries in the X230 will not charge, as it will be seen as NON-authentic battery. http://www.thinkscopes.com/29-29-or-29-batteries-in-the-thinkpad-x230/

Specifically, does it remain within the volume of the X230 configured with the smaller batteries?  I have an X61s that I added the largest battery available (from Lenovo) to, and the thing sticks out the back along the entire rear edge of the laptop, making it about .75" deeper.  Does something like that happen with the 9-cell attached to the X230?  Thanks.

Answer:How big is the 9-cell battery for an X230?

'afternoon.
 
the 9-cell sticks out the back and, i believe, raises the rear by about a quarter inch, same as on the X220. the only battery that stays within the 3-dimentional footprint is the 4-cell.

Turned off my computer, turned it back on and it updated before going to home screen.Ever since, it says 3-4 hours max on LIGHT BROWSING or NO USAGE at all. 6 Cell, previously got 6-7 hrs. Nothing's changed in my software usage or background programs.This is pathetic, I've had way too many problems with this machine and am utterly astonished at what Lenovo has done to the ThinkPad brand. This happened on my previous laptop that had way too much screen backlight bleed, I can't remember if I updated before this occured either.  With all these problems, I won't be buying any machine from Lenovo again.

Answer:[x230] battery life

Hi lemarseillais,
 
Check out this specs page: ThinkPad X230 Laptop
 
 
Under battery life: "Up to 24 hours with optional Lenovo 90W Ultraslim AC/DC Combo Adapter"
 
Higher drain activities include watching videos, multitasking with many browser tabs or windows etc. An SSD typically uses less power than a HDD due to the fact that it has no moving parts so yes, that could be more efficient for you.
 
I hope that helps!
 
Ed

Hi everyone,
My name is James and I've been using my Lenovo y500 for 2 years now (originally bought it to use for school/gaming). I've never had any problems with my laptop until I performed a battery gauge calibration using an app that was made by LENOVO. Now I know this is a known problem but what about the people who have purchased these Lenovo computers, expecting them to last? It's really not fair to the people with no more warranty because this is software that literally came pre-installed with the computer. Like, why put this app on these computers if it's going to break your motherboard? Anyways... The ONLY way I can ever charge my laptop now is by doing this annoying/tedious process that I managed to find on this forum.

Remove the AC adaptor from wall ac receptacle. 3. Once the laptop is completely powered down, plug AC adaptor to your laptop and wall AC receptacle.4.

I bought lenovo y500 two days ago in INDIA.  In the lenovo energy management system 8.0, I found a battery calibration option and decided to do it.  The steps mentioned there were as follows. 1. Full charge2. Full discharge  The process performed full charging followed by complete discharge of the battery which caused the laptop to shut down.   When I tried turning on my laptop, it could not start.  The battery charging indicator LED wasnt switched on even though the power cord was inserted into the laptop.  I could start the laptop only after removing the battery.   Once the laptop was on, I inserted the battery back in and it began to charge.  After about 50% of charging, I removed the power cord and inserted it again.  Now the battery couldnt resume charging.  I again had to shut down the laptop and repeat the above steps of inserting battery after switching on the laptop without battery.  Only then the battery would resume charging. After this, I decided to allow the battery to charge to 100%. But, the charging remained stuck at 99% and could not fully charge the battery.  When I removed and reinserted the power cord, the same problem persisted of battery not resuming charging. Please help me with this problem.  I read on few forums about uninstalling microsoft ACPI which supposedly solves this issue.  However, ACPI returns back after I restart my laptop.I also tried switch...

Answer:LENOVO Y500 BATTERY NOT CHARGING AFTER USING LENOVO'S BATTERY GAUGE CALIBRATION

 
 
ADMIN Edit - While the original post below is marked as the solution, because service will be required if the battery will no longer charge after performing a battery reset, I am adding a Lenovo update here to confirm.   Normal operation will allow the battery to relearn its capacity characteristics when using the battery reset function.  Typically this is not needed in normal use..   Batteries are equipped with a safety feature that will permanently disconnect them (like a fuse) if cell imbalance or an internal short is detected.   This tends to be statistically infrequent, but also normal, and would require a battery replacement.  (Batteries have a 1 year warranty).   This battery feature can also  produce similar results to what is being discussed in the thread, so it should first be considered by service.   This particular  forum discussion also involves a situation that could affect a limited number of systems, and could lead service to replace the system board during warranty.  
 
If your system experiences these symptoms, please contact service during the warranty period.

Hi, I recently bought a battery off ebay shipped from China. and in the first instance this appeared to be genuine but I decided to investigate a bit. A few oddities were that the Lenovo brand was erased off with a marker. The seller claimed that this was to avoid custom's charges, now I don't know enough about customs charges to be able to call him on that. Secondly, there were some obvious spelling mistakes on the labels of the battery and I presume genuine batteries would never have these. The seller still persists so I decided to take it a step further and investigate the FRU P/N and the barcode number. Both of these do not match what is labelled on the battery. Can I now be reasonably sure that it is indeed a fake battery? Thanks.

Answer:x230 counterfeit battery detection

Welcome to the forum!
 
It does sound like a fake.
 
With that said, your X230 will detect a fake battery through Power Manager, notify you of it, and refuse to charge it. That would be the easiest way to confirm the autheniticity one way or another.

Hello Lenovo Community, I'm back to ThinkPad - I previously owned TP R31 and yesterday I received brand new TP X230. Specs are as follows: I5-3380M (up to 3,6 ghz), 8gb RAM (2x4), 500 GB 7200 HDD, standard TN display (I'm fine wit it). Still going to get a decend SDD and put the HDD in some external case (I'm not giving up my 3G modem). The X230 was shipped with substandard 4 cell (44) battery. The problem is that on a full charge (I've calibrated the battery) I only get about 2 hours of normal web browsing (i set display to "3" and CPU performance to "low"). I wanted to ask if this is normal with this battery (it's obviously less than Lenovo declares), or something is wrong here? Nontheless, I love my new machine. Thank you for your answers,Tom

Answer:Thinkpad X230 Battery issues

Well, a few things. 1.  The warranty you mention sounds like it is for the system.  The system and battery typically have different warranty terms.  Unless of course you did order an additional battery warranty. 2.  However, the base battery warranty is one year, so if you contact them they should get you a replacement since you are only a few months into ownership. Good luck!

I've noticed over the past few weeks that my 9-cell (Sanyo) doesn't seem to be lasting as long as it did in the past.  I went into the Power Manager (mine is in German and called "Energie-Manager", so please excuse any mistakes I make in translating into English) and checked the maximum capacity - it was only 79Wh. Apparent "intended" capacity was only at 86Wh, although it clearly says 94Wh on the battery. I went ahead and did a recalibration and that brought the maximum potential charge up to 80Wh, but still well off the 94Wh mark. There are also less than 50 cycles on the battery at this point in time.  My question then is this: should I call Lenovo and have them replace this battery? It's less than a year old (September 2012 was purchase date) and I have the 3-year bring-in warranty (or they come to me - in German it's called "Vorort"), so they're required to service any issue in 24 hours or less. I would certainly love to get some feedback on this. I full intend on calling tomorrow morning once they open, but I'm wondering what my expectations should be here - if they're supposed to replace it, then I can at least recognize when they're giving me the run-around. If my chances are slim, then OK, but it would be nice to know that before I call.  Thanks for any help - this forum is an excellent resource, been lurking ever since I had the laptop but never created an account until now. Guess that's how it usually is, huh?

Sanyo ? Yes, try to replace it by battery made by different vendor (Panasonic is the best one) as soon as possible. Sanyo notebook batteries are known for low quality (on the other hand their AA NiMH Eneloops are extremely good btw). I am not sure whether the battery is covered by 3 yrs warranty.

Hi, my x230 shuts down instantly when the battery is at 25-30% (around 10Wh).I tried performing battery gauge reset with no improvements, but I have the suspect that it doesn't run the full charge-discharge-charge cycle since it shuts down (I didn't attend the full cycle so I'm not sure).I had a wrong "full charge capacity" reading in power manager which I solved switching charge mode in Battery Maintenance from "always full charge" to "optimize for battery health".The battery firmware update tool is not suggesting an update, so I'm apparently out of options.  Thanks in advance for any help

Hello,I have a second failure for the 6 cell lenovo battery in 6 months.The first battery just stopped charding at some point, replaced to another one.The second one now indicated it has just 46% percent of it's original capcity.Going to replace it too. Is it just a bad luck with the batteries or can it be anohter problem like the power supply or event the mother board ? Thank you, 

Answer:x230 6 cell battery second failure in 6 months

Perhaps Lenovo's new rapid charge technology causes batteries to lose their capacity faster?  My x220 battery still maintains 90% of its charge.

I have an X230 Thinkpad which is about 10 months old. I am getting a new batter (6 cell) as the one it came with isn't giving me good performance - usually only lasts about 2 hours of use. I have the original battery set to "automatically optimize for battery lifespan" in Power Manager. This is my typical use: 1. Charge battery to 100%. Unplug from AC power.2. Use laptop on battery until it is anywhere from 10% to 20% - then plug in and recharge to 100%. Several cycles in a day if heavy use.3. Sometimes the charge cycle is overnight, so it stays plugged in after reaching 100% for several hours - never more than about 8 if it is truly overnight.4. I put it to sleep manually (FnF4) between active sessions. Is there something I can do differently to ensure that the battery both performs well and also lasts more than the 10 months this one has. I never run it consistently on AC power - though I could some of the time. When it was new, I got many more hours on a charge - now it is needing several charges in a day. I have read different things that say never charge it to 100% - but is a setting of 99% as the stopping point a good alternative? I had set it for a manual threshold for a time - but it needed a charge more frequently when set at soemthing like a 90%-30% type of charging scheme. Also - I have 4 GB RAM, run Win 7 Home Premium, and use a USB mouse and a WiFi hotspot at home if those have any effect. Thanks so much! Any ideas appreciated!Lily

Dear Lenovo & Community Members, I've recently received my X230 (model no.: 2320-24B), and discovered an issue related to the CPU performance of X230 on AC power. To make the long story short, my X230 is not running at full performance on AC power with battery detached. Accordingly, the X230 was shipped with setting at "Maximum Performance" under "Intel Speed Step" in BIOS by default on AC power. Full Story: My notebook is X230 (model 2320-24B) which comes with Ivy Bridge i7-3520M. I have a habit to detach the battery when it was fully charged, as I want to reduce the battery aging and my job does not always require me to work on the go. And by accident, I've discovered that X230 performs differently on AC power with and without battery. To be more precise, when my X230 runs on AC power with battery detached, it runs as slow as my Sandy Bridge i3-2100 desktop, which sounds very weird to me for a notebook costing me more than $1000. Accordingly, I've benchmarked my X230 and here are the results, both with BIOS setting to "Maximum Performance" under AC Power:AC power, without battery - WEI CPU Score: 4.9, WinRAR 4.2 benchmark: ~1,900kb/s, CPU @ 1.189Ghz on loadAC power, with battery - WEI CPU Score: 7.2, WinRAR 4.2 benchmark: ~4,000kb/s, CPU @ 3.6GHz on loadOn battery power - WEI CPU: 7.2, WinRAR 4.2 benchmark: ~4,000kb/s, CPU @ 3.6GHz on load Based on my tests, I?ve found that X230 is only performing at maximum performance when attached with its ...

Answer:X230 CPU performance issue on AC power without battery

Hi slkong, welcome to the forum,
 
allow me to assume that you have the 65W AC power supply.  If this is the case in order to reach full CPU performance you do need to have the battery attached, there are several threads on this within the boards concerning different systems and also this Knowledgebase article.
 
Hope this explains the situation for you.

Looking for a new battery for my x230, and the batteyr I am looking at is a Lenovo battery still in the box from eBay.  I know that the warranty would apply from the original sell date (maybe up to 6 months ago from the picture I am seeing), but would that mean I get 6 months of warranty, or do second sale buyers not get any coverage? Thanks!

I got a ThinkPad x230 i5-3360M about 6 months ago. I run Linux Mint Mate Maya (13), and this is hands-down the best laptop I have ever had the pleasure to use. Lately, however, the battery life has been deteriorating noticably. The 6-cell battery now lasts only about 3 hours on a charge, and indeed upower -d reports that battery capacity is down to 45.5301% Is this a hardware defect, a Linux issue, something about the way I'm using it, or what? I thought I would ask here before calling Lenovo -- I have 3.5 years of full protection left on the warranty, but something isn't right, and maybe there is a simple fix. Thanks. 

Answer:Battery capacity deteriorating fast on x230

I logged into Windows and checked the "Power Manager" app. It reports the battery condition as "poor" with 45% capacity (exactly what the Linux tool reports) but only projects 2 hours of life on a fresh charge. Power Manager also reports that the battery was manufactured just one month before I started using it last summer, and that there have been 66 charge cycles to date. Unless anyone has any suggestions, I guess I will be callng for warranty service.

Dear, I found some strange issue with my Lenovo ThinkPad X230 on Windows 10. When i've attached the battery, I try to shutdown, hibernate and sleep the labtop but the laptop didnt shutdown or hibernate properly. The screen is turn off, the WIFI symbol still bright, the power button light still blink and the fan still spining. i need to force shutdown by pressing the power button for 10 sec to turn everything off. On the other hand, if i take the battery off, pluged the power cord, everything will work fine. I can shutdown, hibernate and sleep. I used Lenovo Service Bridge to scan and install the lastest version of every driver. I also flashed the BIOS to lastest version. Unfotunately, the problem still persists.

Hi, when my Lenovo U41-70 is unplugged, it won't turn on even if it still has charge inside. The battery LED indicator blinks repeatedly in white after I push the power button when unplugged. (I think white doesn't indicate a lack of charge in the battery)The laptop only turns on if I plug in the power adapter. And the laptop won't suddenly shut down if i unplug the power after I plug it in, so it means that it still runs on the charge in the battery. But if I shut down and power it up again(when unplugged) it still won't turn on. I think there is a problem with battery detection  (see pictures) What is the solution for this, as I really need this laptop for work.

Hi, I recently bought a Lenovo S20-30 (around 6 ~ 9 months ago) and I am having some problems with battery. The laptop had Windows 8 preinstalled that I used for a couple of weeks, before installing Ubuntu MATE. On Windows, the battery life was around 2, 2.5 hours. After installing Ubuntu, the battery life shortened to about 1 hour, 1.5 at maximum, however in the last couple of weeks it is barely lasting 30 minutes. I checked and there is no viruses and/or software draining CPU or battery. Also, every time I turn on the PC, the system shows the following message:Error MessageI am very dissapointed with Lenovo. This laptop was barely used, it is almost new and I can't rely on it anymore. I think this laptop was already old when I bought it, for months in store shelves waiting for a buyer. Regards,
