Which setting should i use for battery threshold.

After reading almost everything regarding this topic, i still having hard time to decide.

I'm using my W520 95% of the time on AC adapter,

I should let the power manager "Maximum lifespan mode" decide or should i set the battery threshold on some specific percentage ?

Thanks.

I set mine to stop charging at 95% and to charge when it's below 60%.

Hi OrElm!

 

Check these Knowledgebase articles:

 

"How can I increase battery life?"

"Why did my battery lose capacity?"

"Why did my battery die?"

"Should I run with my battery in or out?"

 

Hope they help! Ask if more questions.

Thank you!

One thing, the battery Auto mode for lifespan, keeps the battery at 99% according to the manager, but it's true? or it keeping it much lower and not showing ..

Re: Which setting should i use for battery threshold.

Apparently It's hiding 10% of the battery, I'm correct?

I had 99% until i sent manual threshold.

 

BTW

Do you suggest resetting the battery gauge once in 3 months for this kind of battery?

 

Thanks
