Battery charge mode

Specifies battery charge mode power management policy.

Dynamically control battery charging to minimize battery wear-out due to battery stress and extend battery life.

If custom battery charge mode is selected then DeviceBatteryChargeCustomStartCharging and DeviceBatteryChargeCustomStopCharging must be specified.

If this policy is set then battery charge mode will be applied if supported on the device.

If this policy is left unset and policy is supported on the device, the standard battery charge mode will be applied and cannot be changed by the user.

Note: DeviceAdvancedBatteryChargeModeEnabled overrides this policy if the former is specified.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
