You can actually condition your battery to retain more power. When you purchase a new laptop or a new battery, it comes to you completely empty of charge. Though most of us canít wait to get back to using our laptops cord-free the moment possible, itís important to let the battery accumulate a full and complete charge.
For the first two or three cycles only, youíll want to completely deplete your battery before recharging to the max. This ďtrainsĒ your battery to understand its own power capacity. After those first few cycles, youíll want to recharge your laptop battery, ideally, before it depletes entirely.
If youíve got to recharge every two hours, itís time for a new battery! Most of us put off buying a laptop battery until the computer practically wonít hold a charge at all. Buying a laptop battery may not be as interesting a purchase as buying something new for your closet, but once it arrives, you might wonder why you waited so long to make your life so much simpler. Once you get it installed, try out some of these tips. If you treat your new laptop battery well, it may just last until the eight-hour battery finally becomes available.
