RESOLUTION
If the Battery Health Manager option is not present in BIOS settings, update the computer BIOS to the latest version available from HTTPS://support.hp.com.
Accessing Battery Health Manager settings
  1. Start or restart the computer.
  2. Press F10 to enter HP Computer Setup (F10 setup).
  3. Select Advanced > Power Management Options.



    If you do not see the Battery Health Manager option, update to the latest BIOS version available from HTTPS://support.hp.com.
  4. After selecting an option (see below for explanation of the 3 options), Save and exit F10 setup.
Explanation of the Battery Health Manager options:
There are three options available by selecting from a list.
  1. Let HP manage My Battery Charging:
    Charging behavior automatically adjusts to maximize the battery lifespan. When the battery detects certain conditions, protective measures are activated to minimize premature battery wear. While the protection is activated, the battery run time may be slightly reduced.
    note:
    This is the factory default setting on most new systems from HP being released.
  2. Maximize My Battery Health:

    This setting maximizes battery health by lowering the maximum battery charge level to 80%. When this setting is selected, the battery charges until the charge level reaches 80%, then it stops charging until the charge level falls to 75%. While in this range (between 75% and 80%), the battery notification window shows that the battery is not charging.

    Select this option if the computer stays plugged in to the power adapter most of the time.



  3. Maximize My Battery Duration:

    The battery charges to 100%, then stops charging. Charging resumes when the charge level falls to 95%.

    Select this mode if you need to have the battery fully charged when taking the computer off the charger.
    note:
    Using this mode may shorten the battery life expectancy.
