ThinkPad P71 Battery Charge Threshold & Health

Hi Community,

 

I have a brand new ThinkPad P71 (20HL), Windows 10 Pro, Bios N1TET50W 1.24 and all latest drivers installed.

 

As seen in the snapshot below, Lenovo Vantage shows the battery condition Good and Cycle count 1, the custome battery charge threshold is Off by defualt and because I use my ThinkPad as a desktop which is always plugged in, therefore which percentage would be best for the battery life span? Thank you.

I'm using my P51 very similarly (mostly as desktop computer always connected to AC). And I set threshold for battery 70% - 100%. I think it will drastically reduce wear and tear of the battery in a long run.

I'm thinking of buying this same unit in exchange for my Vios. How long is the battery life of this?
