    Hey guys,

    this is regarding a month old Laptop, LG Gram 15Z990.
    It ships with an OEM software (LG control centre) that limits battery charging to 80%. This software runs in Windows and is not an option in the BIOS.

    LG Control Centre:

    I used to have it on and now have turned it off. However, the battery is stuck at max. 80% charge anyway.

    HWMonitor Result:

    Edit: Battinfoview shows same information. Additionally, charge/discharge cycles performed: 7

    Any suggestions?

    P.S. Battery is integrated and non removable.

    Try uninstalling that LG control centre program.
