    Want to control battery charging


    I'd like to be able to stop my battery in my laptop from charging past a certain point, like maybe 60 or 70%. I've heard that this can extend the life of the battery. I currently do this by taking the battery out when it gets to that point. However, my house has been having a few power outages lately, and that messes up my computer when I have it in Sleep mode with the battery out. I'd like to just leave it in for that reason. I have a Dell laptop. Device nameDESKTOP-T1U7VSKProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM) i3-4030U CPU @ 1.90GHz 1.90 GHzInstalled RAM6.00 GBDevice ID9D87531D-5A83-414A-BB2A-A9943F9E995DProduct ID00325-80409-88884-AAOEMSystem type64-bit operating system, x64-based processorPen and touchTouch support with 10 touch points I've already downloaded and tried using Dell Power Manager Lite. It looks it has what I need, but it doesn't seem to do anything. The instructions say that it only charges during specified usage times. But no matter what I set the active use times for, the battery continues charging. So, is there any other program I could use?

    Want to control battery charging

    Acer battery won't charge

    What if the battery unremoveable? Should I disassemble and remove it? also there is a switch underneath the case and around the RAM slot that prevent the laptop to turn on when the case is open and without the charger. Is that the same as removing the battery? although when turned on with charger, the laptop still see the battery. Thanks

    - - - Updated - - -

    I took the report, the design capacity was 41.440 mWh but full charge capacity is now 25.752 mWh. Is it that bad? Before this happened I believe HWMonitor also show the same number with 38% Wear Level.
    Here's the report file
