Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Battery Concern



So I have been trying to keep my laptop battery in proper condition, and I came accross this thing called Conservation mode in Lenovo Vantage, Although because it only charged till 60% it was quite a concern, so what I am doing is charging my laptop to 85-90 and then putting it on conservative mode (which will run it off AC-Adaptor, while keeping the charge at 85-90) and then keep using it until I need.

Although from past few days I have been living at home so no real need to go out with my laptop, and due to which I have been using my laptop in conservative mode at 90% charge from about 2-3 days constant and as I am also a programmer, I do spend almost 15-20 hours per day.

So I was concerned if using the laptop at conservative mode for 2-3 days and over 15-20 hours at 90% would affect my battery in any way or no, as it will be running through the AC-Power?


Note: It is always on the conservative mode and plugged in with the adaptor for all the 15-20 hours every day.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y700 Battery Concern

You will be fine.  For Ideapads conservation mode limits you to 60% but on thinkpads you can choose 90% threshold.  I have mine setup on to stop charging at 90% and start at 80% for years on my W510 with no issues.  It was plugged in for 12-14 hours a day.  Not quite as long as your 15-20.
