Batteries are probably the most volatile component of modern computers. The batteries are used before any other component and it is essential to take care of them for more efficiency and a longer service life. We often use battery monitors to monitor the health of the battery and other important statistics. But the set of tools we talk about in this article calls for battery limiters. The purpose of these tools is to remind you not to recharge your batteries 100%.
Often, we leave our devices plugged in, resulting in overcharging and thus damaging the battery. In addition, when we charge the batteries at 100%, the batteries undergo a lot of stress to accumulate these last figures. It is often advisable never to fully charge the lithium-ion batteries. And the same applies in case of discharge, never let the charge of your device exceed 20% or 15%, as this would seriously affect the life of the battery. We now turn to the list of battery limiters available for Windows 10.
