Can I limit battery charge to 50%

HP Recommended
EliteBook.
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

i want my battery to last as long as possible..~7 yrs vs just 3 yrs. As I understand it, having it charge only up to 50% will considerably lengthen battery life. its easy to do on my Dell and my Lenovo but i cant find a way to set this on my new HP.

the best option available (with the later BIOS updates) is to set the BIOS 'Battery Health Manager' setting to Maximize my Battery Health... The BIOS will charge up to <100% but will try to keep the battery cooler for longer... I am not sure you can ever get 7 years since all Li-Io cells tend to degrade over time with charge cycles, but you will get the most longevity out of the battery

 

i also recommend installing Hp System Defaults Settings softpaq which tweaks the default power management profile in Windows to optimize battery performance... then, you adjust these setting to suit your needs
