How do I set charge thresholds in Power Manager?

Hi everyone, 

I recently got a thinkpad t530 and I would like to set up charge thresholds to maximize battery life. 

However, I haven't been able to find this feature in Power Manager.  The guides I've consulted point me to the "Battery Maintenance" button; where is this button located in Power Manager?  This is what I see in Power Manager:

Any help would be great!

It should on that page. What versions of Power Manager are you using? and what is the OS?. Finally is your battery Lenovo OEM?
