    I had the name wrong. As someone else said, it is called "Battery Life Extender". It should be in the Samsung folder in the porgrams menu.

    Yes. Then you have to reboot and let it charge to 100%.

    Ah, and this was why I posted a thread on my own about my issue with batteries. I read this guide and several other websites where people were saying it's bad to keep the charger in and where people say you should unplug the charger.

    Being that I have an Asus Zenbook, I can't remove the battery. So the battery degrades anyway even if I don't use it. But does leaving the charger in, make it degrade faster?

    Is it better to leave the charger in at 100% and just use it without the charger when needed, OR is it better to unplug at 100%, let it drain and then charge it again?

    And I read there's an option for some laptops that you can you disable battery charging in BIOs. I couldn't find that option for myself.

    as i said before...don't listen to people that tell you to unplug it at 100%...that is terrible for the battery because your forcing the battery to cause unnecessary wear. plus its extremely inconvenient.

    1. No, it will stop charging when capacity is reached.
    2. You should drain it once in a while from what I have read.
    3. I have not read of any ASUS with that feature.

    Are there any programs that counts my charge cycles and tells me when it's time to do a calibration?
