What is Flexicharger?

    Preliminary: Please refer to the article description to see if your device supports FlexiCharger.

    The longevity of lithium batteries depends on the number of charge cycles they undergo. Fully charging a battery to 100% therefore shortens its total life each time. Our laptops therefore offer a feature called FlexiCharger to adjust the charging behaviour of the battery.

    To set the maximum charge, restart the computer and access the BIOS by pressing and holding F2. There navigate to Advanced, then Advanced Chipset Control and set FlexiCharger to Enabled. Two submenus will appear where the user can set the desired percentages individually.

    The wider the range between the upper and lower percentage, the longer the battery will last. For optimal longevity, charging cycles of 40% to 80% are recommended:

    Start Charge 40%
    Stopp Charge 80%

    With FlexiCharger activated, your TUXEDO Book can be operated exclusively via the alternating current connection without affecting the battery charge. This prevents unnecessary micro charging and discharging, which reduces the battery life. This is especially useful when your TUXEDO Book is connected to the power supply for a longer period of time. FlexiCharger can be deactivated in the BIOS at any time, resetting the charging profile to the factory settings. If you need a long battery life, e.g. for travelling, deactivate FlexiCharger to charge the battery to 100%.
