Good day!
Recently got a thinkpad x220 and wanted to immediately understand how to properly configure the Power Manager program for the optimum ratio battery life and save battery life.
In the network, oddly enough, very little information on this software, although the topic is relevant to many.
Found only post from the old forum:
Changing Battery Charge Mode

This section describes the settings available in Advanced mode.

If you primarily use your computer with the AC adapter attached and only infrequently use battery power, battery deterioration may occur faster if the battery is constantly charged at 100%. Lowering the charge thresholds for your battery, periodically resetting the battery gauge, using Maximum Lifespan mode, or using the Battery Health Mode will help increase its lifespan.

To change the battery charge mode, click the Battery Maintenance... button on the Battery Information tab. On the ThinkPad computer with replaceable battery, there are three options listed below the Charge mode section. By default, Automatically optimize for battery lifespan is selected. This option sets the battery charge mode automatically by monitoring battery usage. Initial mode is Maximum Runtime mode and this option charges with full charge voltage. When the battery charge mode is set Maximum Lifespan mode, it helps to increase battery lifespan by reducing charging capacity. When Maximum Lifespan mode is set, Power Manager's battery gauge displayed on taskbar is shown with green outline. Always fully charge (Start when below 96%; stop at 100%) uses Maximum Runtime mode. This mode starts charging when the remaining capacity of the battery is below 96% and stops charging at 100%. Note, this setting may not help to increase battery lifespan. You can also create your own stop and start thresholds by selecting the Custom charge threshold and entering your preferred values.

On the ThinkPad computer with embedded battery, there are also three options listed below the Charge mode selection. By default, Always fully charge (Start when below 96%; stop at 100%) is selected. If battery stays at or near full charge, it is recommended you select the Optimize for battery health to set Battery Health Mode. Battery Health Mode immediately discharge your battery to 50% and set to stop charging at 50% and start charging at 46%. You can also create your own stop and start thresholds by selecting the Custom charge threshold and entering your preferred values.

Note:
* The stop charge threshold must be at least 4% above the start threshold.
* If you don't see the above options, please refer to Changing Battery Charge Thresholds.
This section describes the settings available in Advanced mode.

In that case, if the computer is mostly powered from the mains and only rarely runs out of battery, but the battery is charged 100%, then this may accelerate deterioration of the battery. Only lowering the boundary to the charging of the battery by ensuring that it is periodically calibrated using Maximum Lifespan mode (maximum durability), or a Battery Health Mode (mode healthy care battery), you can extend the battery life.

In order to change the charging mode of the battery, click the Battery Maintenance... (battery care) on the bookmark Battery Information (battery information). On ThinkPad'e with a removable battery you will see there is a section in Charge mode (charge mode) three different choices. The default is selected Automatically optimize for battery lifespan (automatically setup for long-term operation). This option sets the charging mode depending on the mode of use of the battery. Initially, this mode corresponds to the Maximum Runtime (the long battery) and the battery is charging. If you set Maximum Lifespan mode (maximum battery life), it will be provided by a longer lifetime due to lower levels of battery charge. In Maximum Lifespan mode, the battery indicator in the taskbar is displayed with an aura of green (we are talking about the own indicator of Power Manager application, not the system!). Always fully charge (Start when below 96%; stop at 100%) (to always charge the battery to full, i.e. start charging when the charge drop below 96% and stop charging when reaching 100%) uses Maximum Runtime mode. Please note that this mode helps to increase battery life. Also, there is the possibility of creating a private setting charge mode when you select Custom charge threshold (individual setting charge limits) and specifying own values.

On ThinkPad'e with built-in battery there are also three options for charging the battery in the Charge mode section. By default, select the Always fully charge (Start when below 96%; stop at 100%). If the battery most of the time fully charged or almost fully charged, it is preferable to use the Optimize for battery health to enable the Battery Health Mode (mode healthy care battery). In this mode, the battery will be immediately discharged to 50% and then put the end boundary of the charging at 50% and start charging at 46%. Also, there is the possibility of creating a private setting charge mode when you select Custom charge threshold (individual setting charge limits) and specifying own values.

Important:
* level of charging is completed must be at least 4% above the level of the beginning of charging
* if the above options are unavailable, refer to Changing Battery Charge Thresholds (levels battery)


But this is only a small part of the possible options. Unfortunately, he has not yet figured out, so I want to try my luck in the professional community. Can anyone suggest what settings need to set for saving battery and how to combine this with a good battery life?
PS especially interested in the Battery Stretch function.

Thanks in advance!

Li-ion battery best feeling in the charge 2/3 (66%)
On my laptop this Power Manager is just one option, after enabling that, the battery won't charge above 66%.
This will increase the battery life, but will negatively affect the battery life. For example, I rarely stand laptop from home, because the option included and since 2012 he at me normally plows

And what additional configuration is needed? Just the option to include all. For example on my Y570 it does so:
