X201s Battery Charging Didn't Stop Automatically

Assalamualaikum and hello,

 

I notice that there is a battery maintenance support for the battery charging which it will automatically starts the charging once the battery reach the minimum limit and stops at the maximum as we set.But I've tested a few times before with this applications and found out that my battery doesn't stop charging at 90% as I set,instead it keeps charging until 100%..(hopefully the battery doesn't overcharge)..

 

So,i'm wondering whether this applications is actually working or not(or maybe I need to update some drivers perhaps)..Coz I thought I might leave the laptop's charging and automatically stops once it's full or reach the maximum settings meanwhile I could do another work..Someone please help me..

Hello Pidot~!

Try updating the BIOS, Power Manager, Power Management driver and see if it stops charging at 90%.

If it doesn't stop charging despite the threshold being set then try doing a battery gauge reset and see if that helps.

Re: X201s Battery Charging Didn't Stop Automatically

hm..I've done the resetting..but I could say that I'm doing it partially coz I've had read some post in another forum saying that the gauge resetting is not good for the Li-on battery...

is't really true?

Re: X201s Battery Charging Didn't Stop Automatically

resetting the battery is basically doing a full battery drain and then a full recharge. IF you do it over and over again for many times, then it will wear the battery, much like using the battery.
