How to set charging cut-off 80% for Carbon X1

Dear Gents

 

can anybody advise where to set charging cut off to 80% as it was possible to set at all thinkpads under battery settings under windows. Now I have Windows 10 and I can not just find such settings on my Carbon. It is obvious that charging to just 80% cut off extends battery life and if battery is charged fully then wear is more progressive. Based on my battery monitoring app wear now is around 20%. Any advice would be highly welcomed. Best regards, Andy

You can download Lenovo Vantage from Microsoft App store.  Its the replacement for Lenovo Companion.  Charging threshold is available in the app under "Hardware settings" then "POWER"

Dear Gents, I am in Vantage application but I can not find such Hardware settings for charging. There is only one option such audio/visiual. Nothing like power or charging. Is there some advanced menu or whatsover?

Have you tried uninstalling vantage?  rebooting and reinstalling vantage?  Do you still have lenovo settings installed?  I have heard that lenovo settings could interfere with lenovo vantage.  Before installing lenovo vantage.  I might have been overly cautious but i dsiabled fast start up first.  Then i uninstalled lenovo settings.  Rebooted.  uninstalled Lenovo Companion.  Rebooted then installed Lenovo Vantage.
