Dear SamYap

 

Welcome to Lenovo forums

 

The optimized battery health option helps you to improve the lifespan of your battery by preventing the battery to be charged above 60% while the charger is connected, this option protects the battery and will let it endure for a longer time

 

60% or 59% it is supposed to be 60% but this is normal depending on what applications and softwares you are working on at this moment and you will notice it rising from 59 to 60 momentarily

 

Thanks

Hi SamYap

 

You can change to maximum battery life mode and the battery will charge up to 100% normally but try not to leave the charger plugged in while the battery is on 100% as this shortens the battery life, but it is ok if you need to charge to 100%

 

Optimized battery health is better in case that you have the charger and the battery both connected to the machine and you are going to work in these conditions for a long time

 

Please let me know if this answer is sufficient to you and please do not hesitate to ask further questions

 

Thanks
