Thread: Stop battery from charging

  1. #1

    Default Stop battery from charging

    Is there a softwere to stop battery from charging on opensuse ?
    Like in windows 7 you can stop your battery charging in 80% or whatever you want ..

    This will make it easier to make my notebook as a desktop so i will not remove the battery when using it ..


    Thanks before.

    i'm just guessing....but, i notice when my portable is turned off
    completely (not in hypernate or sleep) and i plug it in, the battery
    charges until it gets to 100%..

    which means to me that all of that is take care of by the machines
    hardware/firmware...completely without any involvement whatsoever with
    openSUSE or any other operating system involvement..

    so, i conclude that Win7 must have some way to interact with the
    BIOS/hardware that openSUSE does not..

    maybe you could check with the laptop manufacturer to see if they plan
    to more closely work with Linux developers so they too can offer you the
    same connection....or, maybe it already exist but the hardware or BIOS
    maker is gonna have give you the driver, i guess..

    ask on the laptop maker forums about it..

    and i forgot to mention:

    what is the use of a battery with only 80% charged when you are ready to
    unplug and walk out the door?

    well, what i do is charge to 100% and remove the battery...doing that i
    have a full battery when ready to unplug...and need no software to stop
    its charging..

    ymmv

    Yep, it can't be more simple than that and it take 0% of system resources.
