Battery Charge Limit for Predator Laptops.

XdxDXdxD Posts: 1,181Member High-End Contributor
In Microsoft Store, I came across an app by Asus that limits the charging limit of battery for its long-term health. Is there any app for Acer PCs that can do the same thing? I want to limit it to 80% like I do in my Android phone.

    At present, Acer does not have any such limiting software. Windows keeps battery from getting charged 95-100 triggering charge only when under 95.
    Keeping a battery on 100% of time for over 6.5 years only got its capacity down to about 60% (40% wear), and this is actually not so bad since a typical battery is rated for about 3 years. So don't worry on that front.

    I leave my Helios 300 plugged in aallllllll the time except once every 3 months I let it drain to 20% then recharge.
    Ive had it for a couple years now but..
    Currently I've only lost 3% max capacity (97% battery life remaining)

    This is after thousands of hours of gaming and even over 200 hours of benchmarking on 3dMark and 80 hours of Prime95.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with me. It's good that our Predator's battery is better than the average ones.

    Hello, I have a question, how do you limit your android phone battery to charge just up to 80% or any given value. Is it a software you downloaded or a setting given by your manufacturer? I would really want to do it in my android phone. Thanks :smile:
