Ideapad z500 energy management how to lock battery at 60 % charge

Hi, I have updated my laptop z500 with the latest energy management software from lenovo. I am mostly using my laptop on AC charging. I have read in some forum topics that we can lock the battery at 60 percent charge and then use the laptop on AC power. I am not able to find the options in my version. Please, let me know the steps to do so. By the was I am running on Win 8.

hi danish_jpr,

 

Can you try to:

1. Open Lenovo Energy Management on the system notification area and set battery status to "Optimized Battery Health"

 Link to picture

 

2. Use the computer just with the battery and drain it up to 10% or until the system goes to sleep/hibernate. When the unit turns off or reaches 10% battery life, plug the AC adapter and observe the battery status (the charge should now be halted at 60%).

 

 

Regards
