Hi guys, I just recently bought a laptop about 3-4 weeks ago, and my battery doesn't charge past 33%. This happened spontaneously, quite literally.
I was simply studying and then a notification popped up about how my battery was malfunctioning or something (I can't remember what exactly it said, but I no longer get that notification anymore) and it immediately stopped recharging past 33%. It was working perfectly fine and recharging to 100% literally minutes before...
Anyone know of any possible solutions and reasons for said problem? I really doubt my battery died after 3 short weeks...
Laptop batteries are composed of load balanced arrays of Lithium Ion 18650 rechargeable cells. There's internal hardware within the battery that prevents the batteries from being depleted (which will prevent them from being recharged) or overcharged (which is really really bad
). Sometimes either the cells or the circuitry will fail. Most of these batteries are made in China and are thus shitty by design, association, and definition. This is more than likely the culprit, part of your battery just died. I had the same thing happen to an Asus netbook of mine, the whole battery just refused to charge after a few weeks.
Batteries are usually covered under their own warranty and not under that of the manufacturer.
