But this is a thread about battery care. That's more a symptom of a design flaw in the interaction with the SSD
rather than an actual battery life issue. Besides there are just as many, if not more, reports of SSD
failures in normal use, not tied to just a complete battery drain.
I suspect part of the problem lies in the fact that at the low end, the battery remaining estimate is not accurate, and some people are pushing the limit and forcing an occasional dirty shutdown. Modern HDDs & OS's have had many decades to develop safeguards to minimize data loss. SSDs on the other hand, are still a relatively new development, thus still have some kinks to work out.
Still, you can safely offer the advice of not draining the battery to less than 15% before going back on the charger, if you're laptop has an SSD
. But I suspect that in another couple of years, they'll have much better resistance to data corruption due to power interruptions.
