Many phones and tablets have some version of adaptive charging or enhanced charging, which limits the maximum charge to improve battery health. Now this functionality may be coming to some of the best Chromebooks.

As C2 Productions noted on Twitter, the Canary Channel for Chrome OS now has a feature tag for “adaptive charging.” Once enabled from chrome://flags, a new settings switch is added to the power menu in Chrome OS settings. The description reads, “Prolongs battery life by conserving the battery approximately 80%. The battery will be fully charged before unplugging normally.”

The Code commitment As for the feature, adaptive charging on Chrome OS uses a machine learning model to ensure your battery reaches 100% right before you need it. Most likely, your usage will analyze over time to guess when you’ll unplug your Chromebook – for example, if you unplug your Chromebook every day around 9 a.m. to start working, Chrome OS may keep battery at 80% until 8:30 a.m. or 8:45 A.m.

Google has been working on this feature for a while, like 9to5Google Mentioned in code early Back in Januarybut this is the first time it has appeared as a feature tag with the expected settings panel.

Google already has adaptive charging on its Pixel phones, which also keeps the battery level at around 80% until you need to use the phone. Samsung Galaxy devices have a similar feature called “Adaptive Battery”, while iPhones have “Enhanced Charging”.

It’s not clear when this functionality will be rolled out to all Chromebooks. The Description of the flag in Chromium icon It says “Please don’t enable this if you are not a developer who wants to test the UI for adaptive charging”, so it’s not intended for regular use yet. Google may also scrap it entirely, but for now, it’s still on the way to eventually rolling it out to everyone.
