Have you ever got annoyed when built-in Dell laptop battery dies prematurely within 2 years? If yes, then, you also agree that new original Dell internal battery costs over $100 in North America after warranty period. As a consequence, end user might purchase a new laptop and throw away the old one just because the battery is expensive to replace, thus, contributing more plastic e-waste to environment. Saving the world from climate change is the highest priority in this tutorial to stop overcharging the Dell battery. Let’s jump into step by step instructions.
Step 1: Click on Windows search button and type My Dell (Dell Power Manager).
Step 2: Choose Dell Power Manager in My Dell page, once Power Management window opens please, go to settings.
Step 3: By default, battery charging mode is set to Adaptive but you have to change it to Custom in order to stop charging while Gaming or Rendering using AC adapter.
