X1 Carbon - Windows 8 - Can you turn the battery off from being charged?

2012-11-09, 17:42 PM

My X1C is going to be docked 99% of the time. I'd hate to have the battery constantly charging and discharging for no reason. Is there any way to turn the battery off from being charged? There is obviously no way to remove it.

 

Thanks

 

Josh

you can't. But you can set the thinkvantage's battery charge threshold (if you have factory shipped Win 8 configuration) to prevent charging when the battery is when in certain range.

I don't have a factory shipped configuration. Mine came with Win7. Which program do I need to install to get this?

Thanks
