Hello. A simple feature request. HP , 2018 HP Spectre x360, and most, if not all, HP Business laptops come with a battery charging limiting feature (to influentially halt charging at 80% to prolong battery longevity), 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":
The benefits of this are clearly explained here (and that's why HP offers it on many of their laptops): it can greatly extend the longevity of the non-user-replaceable battery (the battery can always hold a full charge for longer).
The current latest late 2019 HP Envy x360 13 (w/ AMD Ryzen 3/5/7) does not have this "Battery Health Manager" nor "Battery Care Function" feature. Why was this critical feature omitted and can future BIOS updates please include this feature? It would really round out a very good laptop to make it even better.
This post is about limiting the charge intentionally to prolong battery HEALTH (not battery life).
Ideally, you can forward this request to the HP development/engineering teams who can consider this for an upcoming UEFI/BIOS or HP software update.
The "Battery Care Function" or the "Battery Health Manager" that HP has allowed on OTHER HP laptops, but not on the late 2019 HP Spectre x360. We would like to request that feature be developed for this laptop. This is a feature request, not a bug report or technical failure.

This process usually takes a long time since it has to go through different teams.
If ever it is implemented and approved, then it will be sent through an update through HPSA
