OMEN 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-b0000 (33Z77AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Hello, i want to ask a question that's in my head for quite a time, can i have my laptop always charging 24/7?

By charging it means that AC current to the laptop, so the performance very good, but by using battery, the perform not that well. so I want my laptop always connected to AC supply, but i am conscious of battery health and battery span lifetime.

Is it okay to do that?

 

Thanks for your kind answer.

Best regards.

Hello @AidilA 

 

For Omen 16 use (3)

 

(1) Old HP BIOS

> System Configuration > Battery Care Function <80%>
> System Configuration > Battery Care Function <50%>

 

(2) New HP BIOS

> Advanced > [x] Power Control [ Maximize my battery health ]

 

(3) OMEN BIOS

> Configuration > Adaptive Battery Optimizer [Enabled]

( it will decrease the full charging capacity )

 

However, the battery should be used in a balanced way despite this setting. Use battery (only) from time to time and go down to 30% capacity and charge again normally with adaptive battery optimization always on. At the end of the loading process Windows shows 100%, but in reality the actual capacity is lower to protect the battery. Do not be irritated, everything is fine.

 

Good luck
