i have done all HP and windows update including BIOS update to F.20 - 28th December 2020 and cannot see battery health manager in the BIOS to care for my batttery. there is no option to set any settings to preserve battery life.
all i have under BIOS under Configuration is Adaptive Battery Optimizer - Enabled. where is the function for me to maximize battery life and set the optio nto "Maximize my battery health" to set a charge level of 80%
Secondly, im enetering 'HP PC Hardware diagnostics UEFI' setups under F2 and its says it is out of date Version 22.214.171.124 . I Have checked hp and windows updates and cant see any newer versions.
thirdly - is my Bios installed as BIOS or UEFI, if the former, how do i upgrade to UEFI?
There is the option. The link you have posted shows the Battery Health Manager section
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%
So this setting clearly stop battery charging at 80 %. So how would I get this on my model
