What is Flexicharger?

Note: Please refer to the item description of the device to find out whether your TUXEDO notebook supports the FlexiCharger. The TUXEDO Control Center automatically detects the function.

The longevity of lithium batteries depends on the number of charging cycles they undergo. Fully charging a battery to 100 percent each time thus shortens its overall lifespan. Our laptops therefore offer a function with the FlexiCharger to adjust the battery’s charging behavior.

To set the maximum charge, restart the computer and call up the BIOS by holding down the F2 or Del key. There navigate to Advanced » Advanced Chipset Control and set FlexiCharger to Enabled. Two submenus appear in which you can set the desired percentages individually.

The greater the range between the upper and lower percentage values, the longer the battery will last. Charging cycles of 40 to 80 percent are recommended for optimum longevity:

  • Start Charge: 40%
  • Stop Charge: 80%

With FlexiCharger activated, your TUXEDO Book can be operated exclusively via the AC power connection without affecting the battery charge. This prevents unnecessary charging and discharging, which affects the battery life. This is especially useful when your TUXEDO laptop is connected to the AC adapter for an extended period of time.

FlexiCharger can be deactivated in the BIOS at any time, which resets the charging profile to the factory settings. If you need the longest possible battery life for a trip, for example, deactivate FlexiCharger in advance to charge the battery to 100 percent.

Note: The TUXEDO Control Center now allows to control the charging behavior of the notebook from the running system. The corresponding configurations can be found under SettingsBattery charging options. More information can be found in this this article.
