Your laptop will now restart into Windows. It won’t start charging until the battery power drains to the Start percentage. It will stop charging when you unplug the charger, or when the battery power reaches the Stop percentage.
Windows battery power meter will become increasingly inaccurate, but the BIOS will charge the battery to the proper percentage. To reset the Windows battery meter, disable FlexiCharger. Unplug the charger, drain the battery (playing video helps drain it faster). When the system shuts down due to low battery power, plug the charger back in, Boot into windows, fully charge the battery to 100%, then reboot and enable FlexiCharger.
