Lenovo battery gauge reset windows 10

I'm new to actually owning a thinkpad and now got a t420s (old yet i really like the keyboard) its on home windows 10 and also i'm having actually varying results with battery life (5 - 3 hrs through no heavy usage) and also discovered that ThinkVantage would certainly aid by resetting the gauge to match the actual charge the battery can hold however that software application was discontinued and never gained updated to Windows 10... so i guess i'd simply favor to understand what i CAN do around this issue

uhh some info that can help:

Windows 10 Pro (64 bit)

Intel i5-2540M / 2.60 GHz

8gb RAM

I use the internal graphics card with the usual 1600 x 900 res.

All the battery gauge recollection does is rotate off any kind of thresholds you have collection so that it deserve to entirely drain and also then recharge the battery. You don't really require Lenovo's software program to execute that.

The battery life fluctuations you defined don't sound favor a capacity reporting problem that could be addressed through a gauge reset, though. Misreported capacity won't impact exactly how lengthy the battery actually lasts. You'll obtain either sudden drops of 10% or more or else the battery staying for a really long time at one % value, but it'll actually last as long as its true capacity permits either way.

Lenovo Vantage is what you are looking for. Unfortunately a few months earlier, Lenovo went complete dumbass and pushed an updated version that sucks shit and is missing a bunch of attributes, including the battery gauge recollection, so you'll require an older variation.
