I was used to remove the battery of my laptop whenever I worked with my computer plugged to AC power and to load the battery with the computer switched off so as to save the lifetime of the battery. But on modern laptops it is not possible to remove the battery.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite L50-B-18C laptop and installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it.
I would like to know if there is any battery management software to work with Ubuntu which allows to stop battery charging before it reaches its 100% capacity and to make it charge again before it reaches a threshold. Some people told me that such utilities exist for Windows operating systems and I was wondering if similar utilities can be found to work under Ubuntu.
