Hi all, I have read some other topics about the EC firmware and DKMS in Qubes but was hoping to get a concise update regarding battery charging for L14 Qubes.
Running qubes on older thinkpads and leaving them plugged in most of the time I have found the batteries are destroyed very quickly, due I assume to poor power/charging management.
Has this been fixed on the L14 running qubes? With the thinkpads it is easy to run them without a battery, and relatively inexpensive to replace the batteries, but I can’t afford to have my battery permanently die in an expensive L14.
In order to update EC firmware down the line, or fix how Qubes takes care of overcharging, is it relatively simple to do or would I have to install a different distro to update before returning to Qubes?
Also if anybody has any tips for running TLP or equivalent in qubes on my thinkpads I need to fix this.
Really want a L14, I hope Purism team continues their valuable efforts. Unfortunately I will have to wait until the second generation comes out and keyboard improves along with build quality. My thinkpads are tanks, but slow!
