HP Battery management - Maximize my battery health

HP Recommended
HP Probook 445 g8
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I primarily use my notebook connected to AC power and want to extend battery life. On my old HP laptop you could just remove the battery and use the laptop as a Desktop replacement. This is not really possible with my new notebook. Opening the chassis every time the connect and disconnect the battery would be a pain. 

So the logical conclusion would be to reduce maximum charging levels. I just dont understand how it works. 

I set the BIOS settings to maximise my battery life and the laptop still charges to 100%.

And I also tried turning the Power Control setting on and off.

The settings worked but after the newest BIOS update it just doesnt want to work anymore.

I have the exact same issue. Limiting the battery charging levels worked flawlessly even when only activating the setting via HP Power Manager. Since the latest BIOS update, it doesn't seem to work anymore. That's a shame; it was such a useful feature...
