Dell Portable Battery LED flashes Orange 4 times then Green once

This LED flash pattern, Orange, Orange, Orange, Orange, Green (Repeats) indicates a internal failure of the Battery. Pressing the charge indicator button on the battery (If equipped) will give a 1 3 5 LED on indication which also indicates a failure in the battery.
The battery may still function, but at less than optimal performance and will have a progressively shorter functional life until it dies.
The only way to resolve the issue is to replace the battery.

Your battery may have Battery charge status indicator, when you press the button next to the 4 led indicators the LEDs indicate the charge status.
Also the System Battery/Charge LED indicates the battery's current operational condition.
Flashing orange indicates Battery failure.

This indicates an internal failure in the battery. While the battery may hold a charge and function, the system has determined an internal failure (Cell with low or no voltage etc) and the only way to resolve the failure is to replace the battery

battery light 4 times is red and one time green in all the time


the battery LED is indicating an internal battery failure. While the battery may still work, the LED indication will not change until you replace the failing battery. It can be an indication of a Failed Cell, low voltage etc. Something in the battery is no longer meeting specification and that triggers the LED indication.
