ASUS and their Battery Health Charging technology

When we leave a laptop plugged in while the battery is already fully charged, it may degrade the battery. But ASUS have introduced Battery Health Charging technology that allows you to set the state of charge to 60%, 80% or 100%, prolonging battery lifespan and reducing the chance of battery swelling. It sounds good but in real life test we will have to see if it actually does what it says it can do.
