I have an XPS 9710 where I can customise charging thresholds, setting max battery charge to 80% thus preserving my battery life, which is especially useful for those days when I really need to use all its capacity, then I can charge it to 100%.
Pretty much the same I had on an older Lenovo Thinkpad.
Is there anything like that on the Pavilion Aero 13? I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Pavilion Aero 13's BIOS is extremely poor on options, I could only find something called Adaptive Battery Optimizer, but I'm not sure how it actually works.
Doesn't HP have something called BatteryCare?

I also really want this feature. It seems to not be present in Pavilion laptops, but present in other HP laptops like their business line. AFAIK, some HP laptops like the OMEN have received the functionality via a BIOS update, it would be great if the Pavilion Aero 13 also gets it. The Adaptive Battery Optimizer doesn't really seem to do anything for me.
In my opinion, that's a very important feature for a laptop and I'm not recommending anyone buy a laptop without it. Unless you're a big fan of e-waste. The laptop has great battery life and many people would trade 20% of it for a longer lifespan. And, worst of all, the hardware already supports it, we just need a simple option in the BIOS.
