Hi.

 

Other gaming laptops have a feature where they stay at a certain battery percentage while charging so they won't reach 100%. I have an HP Victus 16 and I am aware that HP gaming laptops still don't have this feature. I just want to know if I can leave my laptop plugged in. Is this safe or will this cause an issue to the battery's health?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hello @Ysabel22 

Sorry to hear that you are having problems ... I would like to help you.

The <maximize battery health> function is not yet supported in your BIOS version. A future update might support this. However, this is not certain.

 

I recommend using up the battery to 30% remaining capacity 1 to 2 times per month and then recharging it. Then it should last longer.

 

A healthy balance is recommended.
