What is the “Last known good charge” and what it means
In order to maintain the longest possible battery life and performance, a laptop will typically charge for approximately 20 minutes. This session is recorded as a “cycle” or “charge”. After each cycle, the laptop stores its current state so if it’s plugged in, it won’t need to run a full charge again when it’s first turned on. Once it reaches the desired amount of cycles (e.g., 200 cycles), the laptop enters E-standby mode and only charges periodically (not on every cycle) while using very little power at all.
