I would like to fully charge my battery on the ideapad 110s, but the conservation mode will not disable, despite it being turned off in the Lenovo Settings app. I have tried uninstalling the app, but the conservation mode remains on. Any suggestions?

You could check if the service IMController service is running in your system.
If Not, please try to start it.
If yes, you may need to uinstall Lenovo System Interface foundation from control panel.
And re-install it by open Lenovo setting.
Something wrong when Lenovo Setting try to communicate with battery firmware.

As of 3/22/2019 I was having the same problem on my Lenovo 310 laptop under Windows 10. I could not figure out how to control conservation mode that I had enabled at some point and now wanted to disable in order to fully charge the battery.
I finally found Lenovo Vantage in my start menu, right-clicked and uninstalled it. Then I ended up reinstalling it due to some prompting in another Lenovo app/screen I can't remember, but you should be able to find it in the Microsoft App store I think. I don't know if the uninstall/reinstall was important anyway.
The trick to turning on/off the battery conservation mode is the tiny "leaf" to the right of the battery icon that I think Lenovo Vantage puts on your Windows task bar (my task bar is docked at the bottom of my screen, typical for most people). Clicking on the little leaf brings up the "Lenovo Vantage Toolbar" which is a window with some icons on it and a battery charge icon. (There are probably other ways to launch this toolbar as well.) If there is a button that says "More", click it to see more icons. There is an icon labled "Conservation" that looks like a plug in a circle with a little leaf symbol attached. Clicking the icon seems to toggle the conservation mode on/off. So when you need to charge your battery fully, click the icon to turn it off (a diagonal bar crosses it when off). To reenable conservation mode to protect your battery when using your laptop as a plugged in computer for long periods, click the icon again to remove the diagonal bar, and the battery will stay charged at about 40% to 60%, which apparently reduces wear and tear on the battery and extends its useful life.
Hope that is all correct and works for anyone interested.
