I am trying to figure out the best strategy for charging the battery on my P15 Gen2. I've seen people suggest keeping the charge between 40-80%, and not to charge to 100% to maximizing the charge cycle life of the battery. What do you think?

In the past I’ve just kept my laptop plugged in at 100% all the time but after having a couple of swollen batteries I now use tlp (Linux) to keep between 40-80%. I believe the Lenovo utilities in windows also has this capability. I have done this with my iPhone battery since it was new and it is still showing 100% health after over a year so it may be a good strategy.

simply be patient and update all drivers and bios regularly
