Solved!

Battery stop charging at 80%

HP Recommended
Elitebook x360 1020 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The battery stopped charging at 80% so I managed to buy a new one marked HP and the correct part number. Unfortunately, the same thing happens with the new battery but now 79%.

I have tried to unload the battery and load it again several times but it doesn’t help.

It's a feature.

 

HP Business laptops come with a battery charging limiting feature (stop charging at 80%), to stop excessive charging to 100%, when the laptop is mostly used on AC power. This HP feature is called the "Battery Health Manager" or "Battery Care Function", set in the BIOS.

 

Of course you can turn it off.

Thank you so much. The information was really helpful. I will change the setting in front of a customer visit or other situations when I need a persevering battery.

If HP had informed about this when the BIOS update came, it would have saved me a lot of trouble.

You're welcome, but why did you or the moderator not credit my reply as a solution but yours?
