Hi Folks,

I hope you guys are doing well.

I recently upgraded from Dell Xps 15 L502x to Dell's flagship XPS 15 2016 (9550) Infinity Edge Notebook and I'm happy with it.

So, I used my old XPS with the power cord plugged in even after it reaches 100% or until I see the fully charged notification by disabling my battery charging. By that way I prevented my notebook from overcharging.

Until now my battery's health, was good and I haven't faced any issues with my battery. (touch wood)!
But with my new Notebook I couldn't able to see such thing to disable my battery. I have the habit of working in my laptop with the power chord plugged in. But now It kinda worries me, by doing that so may shorten my new notebook's battery life.

Does the new XPS 15 (9550) notebook comes with an automatic disable function to prevent from overcharging? or Is there a way to disable it?

P.s. I had a Dell chat session with their expert, He asked me to remove the power chord once the battery is fully charged.

Thanks
Sibi.

That used to be true but it doesn't really matter anymore. The controllers that limit the charge on modern lithium batteries are pretty "smart" and won't allow the battery to overcharge.

That's cool. If that's the case then, I would happily use my notebook without any worries. Thanks mate!
