If you turn on this setting, it automatically defaults your charge limit to 80%. You can still charge to 100% (or whatever you choose) by setting the charge limit manually, but after that charge it will default back to an 80% limit. The idea is to stop you "accidentally" charging to 100% all the time. HV battery damage can occur if you leave the car at a high state of charge for an extended period. I'll be honest, I've no idea how long the 'extended period' is before damage can occur but I time my rare 100% charges to finish within 30 minutes of leaving to avoid this scenario.
