Laptop battery usage tips

leave a comment »

Customers often ask about their laptop batteries and how to get the best performance out of them.  A lot of people don’t realise that the laptop battery, much like the battery in any other device, is a consumable item.  After a couple of years it will not hold charge for as long as it used to, or maybe it just won’t charge at all.

There are some myths saying that its best to remove your battery or let it drain to the end then fully charge back again to keep its long life. But it’s only a myth.

First of all battery should be used so forget about removing it. You end up with loosing best laptop function – mobility.

Don’t let it drain completely, as it will only shorten its life.

Don’t keep it plugged with power cord all the time you use it.

Let the battery work, this way you can be sure getting the best out of it.

And one more thing you should keep in mind. Most manufacturers give 1 year warranty on their laptop, but only 6 month on a battery!
