As a data point, my thresholds are set to 40%/50% and my ThinkPad P52 isn't charging. The battery falls to 40% before charging to 50%.

If your battery threshold is set on Max 70% and Min 65% then battery charging will be stop on 70% but battery percentage will not reduce until and unless you will not remove adapter

 

What you describe (in your 40/50 example) is opposite to what Ashish wrote. And your laptop's behaviour is correct.

Hi @norparn 

 

The default is to stop at 100% to give you more use time. If you want to reduce battery wear, you have to set the Custom thresholds. 

I suggest 40%/50% if always connected, else use max 80% and 40%-70% minimum depending on what works for you.

What I read is that charging stops at 70% if the threshold is Max 70%, but the battery will not discharge unless you unplug it. It will slowly discharge, but this isn't visible short term. I read this as "It will not charge to 70%, then ignore external power and discharge to 65%, then use external power again, then ignore it ...". It IS said that charging stops at 70%, and it does? 

 

I don't see how Ashish_Lenovo says the opposite of what I say. Still, my P52 behaves the expected way, so the proof IS in the pudding.

Hi, thank's for your comment!
It's not possible in Lenovo Vantage the save option don't work anymore after I upgrade to W10 2004! No matter how the save setting are set, on or off.

Hi @norparn 

 

That's likely due to changes in an OS not yet ready for the general public. Whatever Microsoft says, most of the testing is done by early adopters and Windows Home users...

 

I recommend you stay with Windows 10 1909 for a month or two more. http://askwoody.com/ is a great place to read about   Windows issues and the readiness of new versions. One or two more months is their recommendation.

 

I hope Microsoft didn't steal one more useful setting from us like they did with their "performance" slider...

 

If the setting is in Vantage and is not working, you probably found a bug. Create a NEW thread with a clear name. 

 

If the setting is gone from Vantage, well, we might have lost a valuable setting, or it's a bug. Create a new thread, as it is a different issue.

Re:Vantage Custom battery charge threshold

I also have similar issue about my thinkpad x1 carbon 7th gen. when enable battery charge threshold function, i set up 60% to 80%. normally, it will charge to 80 and will decrease to 60.  

but my laptop is still pending 80% all the time and not decreasing to 60%. i already changed another different percentage level. still face same error. how should i do? this is software or hardware error. When disable battery threshold function, battery is working as well. please suggest me. because i have remain warranty. if related with hardware, i can claim before deadline. i worry that this will be motherboard error. please suggest me.

Hi! 

 

What settings are you using? 

How long since you set them?

Did you let the machine discharge under the lower level?

Re:Vantage Custom battery charge threshold

2021-02-21, 4:32 AM

Hello Martin, thanks for all your help in this thread. I have the new Lenovo 9i (i9 version), and my Lenovo Vantage doesn't have any option to change the charging threshold. The only option that is available to is "enable" the feature, which says:

"Conservation Mode

This function is useful to extend the lifespan of your battery when plugged.
When this mode is enabled, the battery will only be charged to 55-60% of capacity and the battery lifespan can be maximized. However, this will shorten the time you use your computer after it is disconnected from the AC power source."

Is there a way to enable the more advanced feature of selecting the exact percentage threshold? Also, on an unrelated topic, is it better to disconnect the power once the battery reaching the charging threshold? As I imagine if the battery slowly discharges, it will constantly be recharged to the threshold, and it is better to let it discharge 10/20% before charging again, instead of letting it constantly charging 1 or 2% continuously. 

Thanks!
