Yoga 2 Pro Express Charging???

2014-03-04, 19:52 PM

Hi everyone, so I recently turned on the express charging feature on my laptop in the Energy Manager settings and it charges much faster than usual (less than an hour for a full battery for sure). I was wondering, if you have it on all the time, are there any detrimental effects on the battery? Can it make the it die out faster? Does it kill performance when this option is on? (I haven't really noticed anything like that so far) Any advice would be nice. Thanks.

Hi, express charging allows more current to flow to the battery, allowing the battery to charge faster. With this comes more heat, which does have a detrimental effect on the battery. I would recommend turning express charging on only when you need it. Otherwise, leaving it off would be better.

I have yoga 2 pro and it charges preety fast even with express charge turned off. Also it gets heated even when switched off and charging. I suspect that express charging is turned on even though in Energy manager GUI I have turned it off. Is there any other way to confirm that express charge is turned off ???
