The battery is perhaps in need of calibration.


Batteries do age -- as they get older, they don't behave as they did when they were new.  


My suggestions.. at the least:


  • Check / Test for calibration.
  • Check / Read the document about Warranties for Business Notebooks (I believe this may apply in spite of the fact that your system is a tablet - I could be wrong.)
  • Contact HP and ask for help -- warranty coverage is good for business notebooks and you will likely get the information / help you need.



Things that are the Battery


Accepted Solution - Battery won't Charge or Battery won't Hold a Charge


The solution includes a link to an article that explains Smart Battery Technology:  

Battery use and care, how batteries perform over time, and expected battery life.



Battery having trouble?

The battery might be OK and just need calibration (balance / set).


The steps to check / calibrate / replace the battery are included in this document:

Calibrate the Battery -- Link for Windows 10:

Testing and Calibrating the Battery (Windows 10)

Document includes information and link for using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) and / or using the HP Support Assistant to test the battery.
