Question Trying to limit my laptop battery charge to 80%


Aug 5, 2016
Hello. So I have tried to use the charge limiter on acer care center and the option is not showing up for my laptop model. Is there another way of limiting the battery charge to 80%? I just want to extend my battery's life. I also would like to do this for my cell phone if possible.

Limiting laptop charging depends on the model. There's no universal way to do it. Same with your phone (if it has it, it should be in the battery section of your Settings). Basically, either it has it or it doesn't.

Keep in mind the most important thing about battery health isn't state of charge. It's temperature. A hot battery is going to die quicker than one that's been sitting at 100% all the time.
