Battery life Lenovo z500

Hi,

As you know the Lenovo  Z500 notebook has a built-in battery.And I work on it for extended periods of time.

My question is : Which better for the battery : to use it with the AC Power or simply by Charging/Discharging .

---I read some articles that say that the z500 system cut the energy from the battery when it is fully charged  but i am not sure about that.

So which better ?

Re: Battery life Lenovo z500

For battery related issues it is handled by the program Energy Management. If you want your battery to have a long life set it to xxxxx mode while being plugged to ac. This will charge the battery to 60% only. If you want the battery to be charge to maximum for mobile situation later on you can set it to xxxx mode while it is still plugged into ac. So in both situation you have the unit plugged to ac. Note: Refer to the modes indicated in the program to replace the xxxx's in the statements.

Try clicking the charging plan. I have the old version (see picture below).

It's done. I just turned on the conservation mode.

Thank you LenBlazer.
