    charging/battery


    hi, my lenovo yoga which was bought new four months ago has been plugged in charging for around 14 hours around 2 of those hours i was using the computer and the battery has been rapidly draining. if i hover over the battery icon it says that '40% available plugged in, charging'. i have tried turing down screen brightness so that i can barely see and i have also tried plugging it into a different charger. battery saver is on but it is still draining. when i started to use it today it was at around 70% and now two hours later it is at 40%. it has been charging the whole time. i have also tried switching the power socket in which i plug my charger in but it didn't work.

    :)

    charging/battery

    Acer battery won't charge

    What if the battery unremoveable? Should I disassemble and remove it? also there is a switch underneath the case and around the RAM slot that prevent the laptop to turn on when the case is open and without the charger. Is that the same as removing the battery? although when turned on with charger, the laptop still see the battery. Thanks

    - - - Updated - - -

    I took the report, the design capacity was 41.440 mWh but full charge capacity is now 25.752 mWh. Is it that bad? Before this happened I believe HWMonitor also show the same number with 38% Wear Level.
    Here's the report file
