I recently got my hands on my Y480, and i got confusion/questions about the battery life.
Because i am using a laptop for the first time i really dont know what to do.
So i found "Lenovo Energy Management" and switched to "Battery Protection Mode"
Because i am usually playing games like DOTA-2 and CoD-MW3, and the management program says "60% plugged in, not charging" and i keep on playing games.
when i am not playing games i am surfing the internet or watching movies ( not plugged in .... on battery ) and i let the battery to drain unless there is a pop up asking me to pluggin power.
So am i doing it just fine ??? or i am going to ruin the battery in like 6 months ??
Because people say "battery should be fully charged and dischaged" and "there are battery cycles, they should be completed"
Solved! Go to Solution.

you are doing it just fine, but no harm done keeping AC plugged in all the time,
please see this 'Optimize Battery' article...
