Conservation Mode

hi there

i recently bought an ideapad z510.as you know you cannot seprate the battery in this device, but i really like to keep my battery safe from some dangers like overcharging and discharging.

now, my question is this: using conservation mode in energy management, which is the softwear that you can download it from lenovo, can help me to keep my battery imaginery off of charging or not? because the battery charge remains at 60% when you plogged in, and doest this mode work when the computer is off , but it still plugged in?
thank you

Re: Conservation Mode

hi behrouz,

 

Thanks for Posting!

 

This mode controls the Firmware that controls the battery,

   And yes it stops the charging when it reaches 60% to prevent over charging and lessen charge and discharge rate.

     This is most suggested for system that is always Plugged in to the Ac adapter,

 

Best Regards

Re: Conservation Mode

hi behrouz,

 

In addition to what 

 

In Conservation Mode, the battery charge level is limitted to 55%-60% of its full capacity. This can reduce the battery degradation and extend the battery lifespan. When the AC adapter is still connected and the battery reaches its charge limit, you will see a "Plugged-in not charging" message when you hover on the battery icon in the notification area  --the power then gets routed to the AC adapter.

 

I haven't check if this method works while the computer is off while still plugged in but you can verify this by looking at the battery status indicator lights (see page 29 of the HMM).

Re: Conservation Mode

Can you confirm if the conservation mode is working on Y50? While in conservation mode, the battery is charging to 100% !!!

Re: Conservation Mode

Hi,

 

I am using ideapad 500.

 

when i enable conversation mode and plugged in, I dont see 'plugged in and not charging' message when I hover around my battery icon. It just shows me the battery remaining message even though my battery is more than 60%.

 

Is there any problem with it?

 

Is there anyway that I can set my own charging threshold? I tried installing lenovo UPS power manager, but I cant seem to find a way to login or register. Help?!?!?!
