Was working for me at first, now charge going to 100%.
I didn't change anything that I know, and the registry still shows the limits as I set them. I don't really know how to troubleshoot this.

You have to do it this way (change threshold in two places)
If the keys mentioned above do not exist, just create it. After editing registry, turn off the laptop, unplug battery, plug it again and it should start working.

I don't have the key with a battery serial number under Data. Data itself has most of the keys displayed there in his screenshot.
So, do I create the battery number key and create the start and stop keys there under it, or do I just modify the existing keys under data? Is the battery number key essential?
Note no other folders under the top level Data.

The battery serial number key appeared after a shutdown. I think that the creation of the start and stop threshold keys in the \data folder creates the SN key, but the PC has to be shut down for this to happen.
Anyway, I was going to experiment with the second part of entering the keys as described in the linked thread, and to my surprise, there was the SN key before I even did anything. I created the keys as described and that was it. Starts at 60, stops at 80, as I specified.
Thanks for the link and tutorial.

I didn't, because it didn't work. I thought maybe upgrade will fix it, but it didn't. It uninstalled, was not listed under installed programs anymore, yet it was still there. But I got it working by installing Lenovo Settings - Power.
EDIT: Ok, I wasn't totally fair there with my first message. Previous version would not uninstall either.
