IdeaPad V570 'Best battery health'

On the energy management panel under the option for "Best battery health," it says this setting will limit charge capacity to 0-45% or 0-50%. Is there any way to raise this limit above 50%? I'd ideally like to limit the charge to about 80%.

Re: IdeaPad V570 'Best battery health'

Hi Peano and welcome to the community,


Limiting the charge to 50% has been shown to give the battery its longest life.  Older versions kept the charge at 80%.


The only way to keep the charge at 80% using your version would be to change the setting to runtime and charging the battery to 80%, then changing the setting back to best battery health.  Your battery will lose its charge gradually.

Probably about 1% a day.


Older versions might or might not work with your machine.  If you do decide to experiment, uninstall your current version first before you install a new one.  Also keep in mind that the Hotkeys utility is incorporated into the Energy Management.

Another version might make things work funny.
