Y50-70 UHD battery

2014-11-06, 13:17 PM

Hello,  

 

i just bought the lenovo y50-70 and i see that the battery is non-removable.

The problem is that i need to work long hours on the laptop, that means that i need to charge it constantly, but doing so with the battery in it will damage the battery itself as far as i know.

 

I see that in Energy Manager i have Conservation Mode that keeps the battery at ~60%. Is this function what i need to use in order to avoid damaging the battery life by keeping the laptop plugged in for several hours of working/gaming?

 

Thank you!

Solved! See the solution

hi shapeshift0x,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

If Conservation Mode is turned ON while the AC adapter is connected and the battery reaches its charge limit (~60%), you will see a "Plugged-in not charging" message when you hover on the battery icon in the notification area  --this halts the charge on the battery and gets the power from the AC adapter. 

 

This feature is ideal if you want to reduce battery degradation and extend its lifespan especially if you'll be working long hours with the laptop (ie. Gaming) and you'll be using the machine plugged-in all the time.

 

 

Regards

Good day. I have bought Lenovo Y70-50 and installed Windows 10. Can you advise me where I can find Energy Manager to optimise battery for longer battery life?
