Battery Care Function

HP Recommended
Second Laptop in Signature
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Trying to UL a screenshot of the notice I get when I boot up.

It says:

HP has detected that the Battery Care Function in your BIOS is set to 100%. HO recommends that you change this setting to 80%. Reducing the Battery Care Function setting to 80% will help minimize premature battery wear and help provide optimal battery health over the life of the battery.

HP Battery Care Function allows users to specify the maximum charge limit and can be modified in the F10 BIOS settings under Battery Care Function.

OK

 

Question:

Am I supposed to press F10 when booting up to change this setting?

 

Thanks

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to change the battery care function in the BIOS.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

Follow the below steps to change the battery care function.

 

  1. Turn off the computer, and then connect the power cord if it is not already connected.

  2. Turn on the computer, and then repeatedly press the F10 key to open the BIOS Setup Utility.

  3. Using the arrow keys, select Advanced, and then select Power Management Options.

  4. Click the Battery Health Manager drop-down menu to review the setting options and then select the appropriate setting.

    • Let HP manage my battery charging: Use this setting to have the system balance charging between battery health and battery duration. The latest version of the Battery Health Manager dynamically changes how it charges the battery based upon usage conditions and temperature over time.

    • Maximize my battery health: Use this setting if the computer stays plugged in to the power adapter most of the time. This setting maximizes battery health by lowering the maximum battery charge level to 80%. The ability to store additional charge in a battery becomes less efficient after 80% and can add additional stress to the battery over time.

    • Maximize my battery duration: Use this setting if you need your battery to last as long as possible between charges. The battery charges to 100% to provide maximum run time between charges.

      NOTE: This setting might shorten the battery lifespan.

  5. After you choose a setting, click Save, and then exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

@The_Fossette

 

Thank you for your assistance.

 

Details are a bit different on my end. BIOS has these as Headers:

"Main; Security; System Configuration; Exit" only. No "Advanced" or "UEFI Drivers" as in your screenshot.

 

Still, under System Config I found Battery Care Function and set it to 80% as per HP's advice.

 

That should be the end of that. For now.

 

Thanks again.
