Does this battery care function really help save the batteries life? It has two choices I can select one is 50% and one is 80%. It said that if I will be using AC power mostly then set it to 50% and if I use the battery the most then set it to 80%. I have been using my notebook at home mostly so I use the AC power. Or is it best to just have that feature off and let it charge 100% when the computer needs to?

If you use it at home often then you should take the battery out because the more charging to the battery it will slowly decrease the battery life. Use full power when the battery is not use.
