Yes, understood. But modern battery chargers already have that formula built in. So when the charger says “100%” it means “finished”, not “this battery is charged to maximum capacity”. So the battery’s health is already optimised by the charger.
Yes that makes sense, especially when used at home there is no need to charge it up to 100% 1st,
would be good to have a toggle between Battery Mode or Mains Power Mode that allows power to bypass the battery immediately, should be easier to implement than have settings for different percentages, we can simply run the battery down to our own chosen level plug in to power and use it without it going in to charge, and switch back to battery mode when we do want it fully charged.
I would like to add my vote for this feature as well.
I intend to use my PicoPix Max predominantly at home, plugged in, but it’s awesome to have the option to run off the battery when needed.
For this reason I’d like to extend the life of the battery as much as possible by only charging it to 80% at home, but having the option to charge to 100% when I know I’m going to be using it away from a charger.
I have a portable projector from LG which is also battery powered. Since I was using the projector almost exclusively while being plugged in, the battery was unnecessarily charged all the time. The result is that 2 years later, it holds no charge at all anymore. The projector still works fine (lg pf50ks, comparable picture quality and features), but I would need to replace the battery if I want to use it on the go… I would be very sad to see the same fate for the picopix max.
I would be really happy if a charge-limit option were available or even a “no-charge” mode, which basically leaves the battery untouched (as the battery naturally depletes over time even without use, it would make sense to only charge it up again if it reaches a critically low level like 10% or so).
