  • Keep the amount of charge low.  “Battery friendly charging mode” is a function that extends battery life.  You can set your battery to charge to 50% or 80%, which will shorten the amount of time your battery will last without charging.  However, it also extends your battery life.  Please refer to the Q&A below for more information.
