HP Gaming Laptops - Introducing Adaptive Battery Optimizer, Designed to Prolong Battery Lifespan

HP has developed a new technology, called Adaptive Battery Optimizer, designed to maximize the battery lifespan.
Adaptive Battery Optimizer monitors various battery parameters, including:
  • battery temperature
  • battery-charging status
  • usage patterns
When Adaptive Battery Optimizer detects certain conditions, protective measures are activated to minimize premature battery wear. While it is activated, the battery run time may be slightly reduced.
Adaptive Battery Optimizer technology is initially enabled on the following HP computers and further implemented on computers having new chassis design starting 2020.
  • HP Pavilion Gaming 15-dk0000 Laptop PC
  • HP Pavilion Gaming 17-cd0000 Laptop PC
  • OMEN by HP 15-dh0000 Laptop PC
  • OMEN by HP 17-cb0000 Laptop PC
  • OMEN X by HP 15-dg0000 Laptop PC
HP recommends leaving Adaptive Battery Optimizer enabled to ensure that you get the maximum possible lifespan out of your battery, but it can be disabled at any time. Disabling turns off any protective measures that were implemented and immediately restores any run time that was lost. Disabling Adaptive Battery Optimizer does not affect the battery warranty in any way.
Enable or disable Adaptive Battery Optimizer:
  1. Start or restart the computer.
  2. Press F10 to enter HP Computer Setup (F10 setup).
  3. Select Configuration.
  4. Change the status to Enabled or Disabled as desired.
  5. Save the change and Exit.
Determine if protective measures have been activated:
  1. Start or restart the computer.
  2. Immediately press Esc to access the startup menu.
  3. Press F2 to start HP PC Diagnostics UEFI.
  4. Select Power > Battery.
  5. Select Run Once.
  6. Once the test completes, select Battery Details.
  7. Check the Adaptive Battery Optimizer status. Three possible statuses are:

    • Enabled/Not Activated: the feature is ON, but no protective measures are active.
    • Enabled/Activated: the feature is ON, and protective measures are active due to battery temperature, battery charging status, or usage patterns.
    • Disabled/Not Activated: the feature is OFF, and no protective measures are active.
