    Any software preventing further charging after a set %age?

    Hello there.

    My Sony laptop has a pre-build software that can disable chargin' after battery reaches 80%, so it can prolong it's life. Does anyone know this kind of software for Asus T100? I like to work with the charger plugged in and I often forget putting it out after 80%.

    Because working while plugged in is ok, right...?

    Personally I don't think it's necessary to bother. Leaving it plugged in to 100% even over night isn't a big deal. Do try to run it down to 30% or so every now and then before doing the charge.

    I'm very sensitive when it comes to my devices, so after I've read BatteryUniversity I want to do everything for my battery. My previous laptop, Asus K50IJ, died pretty quickly because it was plugged in most of the time. From what I've read, the best for battery is balancing between 40% and 80% and leaving it 100% is as bas as having it depleted completely.

    So, doesn't anyone know this kind of software?

    Charging to 100% is not in any way a bad thing. However, keeping it on charge all the time will probably reduce the time you end up getting when on battery.

    Found BatteryCare... BatteryCare - Proper laptop battery usage guide

    It still requires a user to be proactive "hands-on" but it does provide you reminders to do "stuff".
    A lot of good battery info at the site as well.

    OP... I've not used this software, so try if you want and let us all know how your experience goes.

    Not a direct response to your question but I too have had issues with much older laptop batteries dying quickly when left plugged in. IMO The nature of the t100's design is that one it doesn't feel comfortable to use when plugged in so that rarely happens and two, the battery charge lasts so long that I rarely if ever worry about power. Nowadays the battery management is much better than the not too long ago older days. It really has come a long way in the last couple of years. The t100 uses such a low amount of power that it puts very little strain on battery life compared to workhorse type devices. There are no rapid discharge cycles even with moderate/heavy use.. Again, just my 2 cents.

    T100 limit charge

    After doing research on Lion batteries I discovered that the best way to store them is below 100% charge. Also when the battery is fully charged you should avoid excess heat, Since 90% of the time my tablet will be plugged in and running eclipse or hd videos (or steam stream) chances are it will be getting hot with the battery at 100%. Than when I actually want that Beautiful huge battery it will be diminished.
    (just ordered a T100TA-C1 off of Newegg)

    I want some software that can stop the charging process at a specified point. I'm hoping that somebody here will have some sort of idea of how to achieve this.

    Welcome to the forum.

    The battery will stop charging when fully charged. I don't know of any software that will do what you are asking, but someone may know of something.

    I recommend you have a look at Battery University - easy to find via a search engine. We also have plenty of advice and discussions on battery use - see the link in my Signature below.
