Microsoft is pushing out  KB4583263 to selected HP Windows 10 Laptops.

Unusually Microsoft appears to be working with HP to distribute a solution to help address a configuration setting issue within HP Battery Health Manager.

The issue is present on select HP Business Notebooks that can affect battery life and performance.

According to HP’s article on the issue, the issue addresses issues with laptop batteries becoming swollen due to outgassing, with the battery management system enabling several features to prevent this. It will for example let your laptop only charge to 80% of you use it on power all the time.

The update does not require a restart to take effect.

To find the update, check for Optional Updates in Windows Update settings.
