@Twilighttony please contact the framework support, that sounds like your CMOS battery is at the end of it’s life.
@Twilighttony I had the same issue and the CMOS battery was indeed almost dead, it lost its charge after about 1 week with the laptop powered off. Support confirmed this was the curlprit and sent me a new cell.
My laptop is an i5-1135G7 from Batch 5 (September 2019).
Buy several CMOS batteries. You’ll need em! At least always carry a new spare with you.
Yes the ML 1220 requires charging for some 6 to 9 hours a week by being plugged in else the battery degrades quite quickly.
See the following link and topic for detailed info and the following post in this topic for a link to the DIY mod if you are up to it.
That’s going to be a tough answer.
Li-ion batteries are incredibly variable by use.
You may note reports that charging from 40% to 80% may only use 10% of a cycle not the 40% you’d expect
Charging from 0 to 100% may be recorded as 1 cycle by there is the possibility of serious decline when a battery goes to zero
Then you have the temperature, so someone using the computer in a cold environment and not playing games etc. with keep the battery more ‘healthy’
The battery specs say 100 cycles.
Moved to a different thread. See
@Kieran_Levin has prepared the instructions below for folks who are interested in performing the rework mentioned in this earlier post.
Rework Instructions for 11th Gen Mainboards to enable RTC Battery charging from the main battery
Before you consider this rework, please note that it requires advanced soldering skills, requiring cutting traces on the Mainboard and soldering to small pads and traces. Damaging the Mainboard during the rework process would not be covered under warranty, and we’r…
