Adventure with my "new" battery, I left my on a few nights ago by mistake and completely drained it, it now won't charge at all.
I tried applying the thinkpad-ec mod to my BIOS but it still sits at 0% and the battery light flashes amber. Any ideas fediverse, I've tried a few variations of turn off, swap with old battery turn on, discharge laptop completely etc.


@lyndon This should not happen with a new battery. I'd definitely recommend a warranty claim sooner rather than later - the warranty on new batteries tends to be brief.

@proactiveservices I ordered on Amazon as it was slightly cheaper with free delivery so I can still send it back until April 11th, shame as it was working well to begin with!
