Can my HP laptop battery that is set to charge limit of 80% be damaged or reduces it life span if the charge adapter is still connected to the laptop after it gone past the 80% charge limit and it showing fully charged?

Hi@Sapmarvins, Welcome to the HP Support Community!Request you to follow the below troubleshooting steps from the document:-

 

Reinstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery under device manager: 
1) In the search box, type, and open “Device Manager”.  

2) Expand “Batteries”.  

3) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there.  

4) Click on “Uninstall”.  

5) At the prompt put a check in the box to remove the current driver  

6) Shutdown the computer.  

7) Remove the battery for a minute and then put it back in.  

😎 When the computer comes back up it should automatically find the driver.  

9) Go to Device Manager.  

10) Expand Batteries.  

11) Right-click the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" that is listed there. 

12) Click "Search automatically for updated driver software"  

Do the same thing with Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Embedded Controller.  

Restart the computer and the issue should be fixed. 
   13)update the BIOS for the HP support website.

Hi, thank you but it seems you didn't get my question. My battery is fine but I recently changed the battery maximum charge limit to 80 % in the bios was recommended by HP. Now once it changes to 79% it shows fully charge and stop charging which is fine from the settings I just did in the bios. Now, my question is, if I didn't remove the charging cable or adapter and left it connected to the PC even when it is 80% and not charging, will this damage my PC battery? I believed it should not that is why HP recommended this I think. Please, I need someone to tell if this can damage the battery if the charging adapter is not removed from the PC even when it is 80% full and no more charging due to the maximum charge battery limit settings i chose. Thank you!
