Custom battery charge threshold recommendation setting

Hi, this is the first that I use the Lenovo laptop. I found out a very useful function is "Battery Charge Threshold" which many users talk about it in Lenovo Vantage. But I have a question that does anybody have any idea about the recommendation of  Battery Charge Threshold setting values. 


Thanks in advance.

Re: Custom battery charge threshold recommendation setting

Welcome to the forum.


To extend the life of your battery set the Stop Charging threshold to 60% to 65% and the Start Recharging threshold to at least 40%. This works well when the ThinkPad runs off AC mains most of the time.


If that doesn't give you enough usage time on a battery charge then set the Stop threshold as high as 80%  and the Start threshold to at least 20%.


Keep in mind that all batteries do deteriorate with time. There are no settings that will make your battery last forever.

A little more info would help, like what model and how you use the machine.
