DESCRIPTION

To learn more about the different settings in HP Battery Health Manager, please see the HP Knowledge Base Article Using HP Battery Health Manager.
To learn more about battery swelling in lithium-ion batteries, please see the HP Knowledge Base Article on Swelling or Deformation of Notebook Battery.
HP recommends that customers update their BIOS to include the latest version of HP Battery Health Manager and enable HP Battery Health Manager to one of the two options below based on usage environment and/or the age of the notebook.
  • Let HP Manage My Battery Charging
  • Maximize My Battery Health


SELECTING THE RIGHT SETTING:
LET HP MANAGE MY BATTERY HEALTH

What Does It Do: Dynamically changes how the system charges the battery based upon usage conditions and temperature over time, optimizing battery health over the life of the battery.

When Should You Use It: Ideal for a new system or systems less than a year old that are used in a mixed-use environment where the notebook is regularly taken off AC power.

MAXIMIZE BATTERY HEALTH

What Does It Do: Immediately limits the maximum state-of-charge on the notebook battery to 80% resulting in minimal stress on the battery and optimizing battery health over the life of the battery.
When Should You Use It: Ideal for systems greater than 1 year old or that are continually plugged into AC Power or a docking station for a long period of time.

To learn more about how to change setting in HP Power Health Manager, please see the HP Knowledge Base Article Using HP Battery Health Manager.

Please note that the updated version of HP Battery Health Manager still has the default setting of Maximize My Battery Duration. HP Recommends that customers change the default setting to Let HP Manage My Battery Health or Maximize My Battery Duration based on usage environment and/or the age of the notebook.
