Samsung Laptop only charging to 80%

  johnanthony 13:49 12 Oct 2013

My laptop indicates that the battery charges to 80% and then stops charging. I bought it July 2012 so its not ancient. I have seen answers in other forums about power management and have tried to see what is different but all seems in order and there isn't a setting about charge levels. Can someone come up with an easy solution? Thanks in advance

johnanthony, I have a Samsung laptop,which I can set the battery to charge to full or charge to 80%. According to Samsung charging to 80% prolongs the life of the battery. Hope this is of help.
