Question

Is there any way to speed up the Battery Manager Gauge Reset utlity?  Why does it take about 5-6 hours to run?  I'm using this on a Lenovo Ideapad U530 touchscreen laptop.

Answer

 

The reason the battery reset takes so long is that is has to fully discharge and then recharge the battery.  What you might try doing is when the battery is discharging is to make use of your laptop and do a resource intensive activity like watching a movie. 

 

Users are advised not do a battery reset unless it is absolutely necessary as it can cause additional wear on the battery's life.  So you should avoid doing it on a regular basis if you are.
