    Dell Longevity Mode

    Longevity Mode monitors the charging and discharging behavior of your battery. If you’re frequently connecting and disconnecting your laptop to a power source without allowing the battery to charge fully, Longevity Mode will moderate the extent to which your battery charges to protect your laptop battery health.

    To turn on Longevity Mode in Microsoft Windows

    On the notification area of the taskbar, right-click the Battery icon.
    On the options list, click Dell Extended Battery Life Options. The Battery Meter dialog box is displayed.
    Click the Longevity Mode tab.
    Click Enable to turn on Longevity Mode.
    Click OK.

    Extending battery lifecycle

    Leaving your laptop plugged in all the time or never allowing your battery to fully charge when it’s plugged in can actually reduce your battery’s charge capacity and shorten its lifecycle. However, Dell has introduced two new battery charge settings, Dell Desktop Mode and Dell Longevity Mode, that help extend a laptop’s battery pack lifecycle.

    Install the Dell Quickset application from our Dell Support website. If Dell Desktop Mode and Dell Longevity Mode are not supported on your laptop battery, you’ll have to self-monitor your battery-charging behavior. For more information, refer to Dell knowledge base article How to Download and Install a Driver?
