Is there anything like battery charge manager in Ubuntu 12.04 for my Dell Inspiron 5720? I mean some program, that I can set so that it stops laptop from charging when it's above 80% of battery charge and which starts charging when it's below 50% without unplugging my cable. I heard it can let my battery live longer. Thanks alot!

Just do it manually like I do. It is true by the way, if you let your laptop plugged in day and night your battery will get lazy. –  user204762 Oct 23 '13 at 20:30
