Lenovo power manager gauge not updating dating topsite com

I have an A21M Thinkpad and just bought an extended length 6600m Ah battery to replace the 5400m Ah I had before.

It registers the capacity correctly, but will not charge the battery pack past 60%. I have tried running the battery all the way down to hibernation and then charging, but there has not been any change.

Make sure the "charge threshold" is set to "always fully charge". It will take some time but it will verify that the guage program is properly set. There was no change for days, then today it decided to charge fully (cycle count got up to 4, maybe had something to do with it).

The Think Pad has a lithium-polymer (or lithium-ion for older models) battery pack which includes a microprocessor that regulates battery use and communicates the battery's status to the computer.

When you recieve or purchase a new battery, you may find that the battery is at or near 0% capacity.

This will be due to the length of time the battery has been in stock and does not affect the quality of the battery.
