So when going  into dell's BIOS configuration, its giving me an option that says "Batter Charge Configuration" and within this option, I get other options like;

  • Adaptive
  • Standard
  • Primarily AC use
  • Custom

Can someone tell me the difference between these options please? Thank you in advance!

You can change the battery charge configuration in the Power and Performance Management, why would you wish to do this from the BIOS?

Hi,

Adaptive – Automatically optimizes battery settings based on the user's typical patterns. Recommended for users who want to "set it

and forget it.

 

 

.
ExpressCharge – Quickly charges the battery using Dell fast-charge technology. Recommended for users who
need the battery to charge within a short period of time. If the system is powered off,then the battery typically
charges to 80% within one hour and 100% in two hours. Charge time may be longer if the system is powered on.
NOTE: The ExpressCharge setting may cause battery health to diminish more quickly than other settings.
Primarily AC – Extends battery life by lowering the charge threshold, so that the battery never charges to 100%
capacity. Recommended for users who primarily operate the system while plugged into an external power
source.
Custom – User selects when the battery starts and stops charging. Recommended for advanced users.
Standard – Fully charges the battery at a moderate rate. This setting provides a balanced approach to extending
battery life while still providing a reasonably fast charging time. Recommended for users who frequently switch
between battery power and external power sources

This is just one big mess and nonsense, because it is not possible. None of the battery can not be recharged faster than optimal. It isn't simply possible. It may only capitally ruin the accumulator (battery). And if you have lithium-ion-accu and you will use fast charging, the result will be an explosion.

 

Even if someone wants to have any very rapid charging, it will not be possible. 
Do not allow yourself to interfere with commercial fraud, whose sole purpose is to get more and faster money.
