New Windows 10 Update Forcibly Enables HP Battery Health Manager

New Windows 10 Update Forcibly Enables HP Battery Health Manager

Microsoft has released an update for all supported versions of Windows 10 that forcefully enable the Battery Health Manager option in the BIOS of supported HP business laptops.

HP Battery Health Manager is a BIOS battery management feature in specific HP business laptops that modifies how a battery is charged to increase its longevity.

“HP Battery Health Manager is a BIOS-level setting available in most HP business notebooks that is designed to help optimize battery life by mitigating the exposure of the notebook battery to key factors, such as high state-of-charge, that can accelerate battery swelling and chemical aging over time,” an HP support topic explains.

In the past, HP laptop owners had to enable the Battery Health Manager in the BIOS manually. With improved charging algorithms, HP now wants this setting enabled for all support devices.

To achieve this, HP has partnered with Microsoft to release a Windows 10 KB4583263 update that automatically enables the Battery Health Manager and sets it to the ‘Let HP Manage My Battery Health’ setting.

“When the feature was first introduced, customers had to manually enable HP Battery Health Manager to the recommended setting of Let HP Manage My Battery Health. As usage patterns for business notebooks have changed over time, HP has updated HP Battery Health Manager with new and improved charging algorithms. This makes it more effective at mitigating those factors that can accelerate battery swelling and chemical aging. HP is working with Microsoft to deliver an HP solution to enable this setting on select HP business notebooks so you do not have to enable it manually,” HP explains.

For those who do not want to use the Battery Health Manager, HP states that users should change the BIOS setting to ‘Maximize my battery duration,’ which will adjust battery charging and performance. 

This update is rolling out today to Windows 10 1809, Windows 10 1903, Windows 10 1909, Windows 10 2004, and Windows 10 20H2 users.
