Running a Lenovo X201 with a 9 cell battery. The battery is now on 50% after two years, this is a very short life time. I think a lot is due to the stress of loading because it is used with an ultra-base.
Mobile computing gets more and more important compared to home computing. So together with a power-management of the kernel that finally increased in completeness and functionality in its last editions, this feature would be a logical extension.

This is already done in GNOME in openSUSE 13.2 and I believe also in KDE, so closing this feature

I doubt that this is true. The request is about battery charging thresholds, i.e., at which battery level the hardware starts charging and when it stops. I am not aware of such an option in KDE.
