Once again, there's no free lunch. The harder you work the battery the faster it dies. Shocking, who could've guessed?

I've had Lenovo laptops since the T60 days, I've always set the battery to stop charging at around 85-90% and have the laptop go into hibernation at 25-30%. Sure I lose some work time compared to running the battery into the ground, but I rarely need more than an hour of cordless run time anyway so it's not a big deal. I've only had to replace one battery in the lat 10 years and everything is still in good shape. Keyboard on my W520 is starting to look a bit worn though.
