Tip & How-To about Video Game Consoles & Games
Have you noticed how the more you use a rechargeable appliance, the shorter it's battery life is? I don't know the exact reason, but what makes sense in my mind is that if you let the battery run out over, and over, and over, there is a little bit of the charge that you cannot recover and use, thus making the life of the battery shorter, thus giving you less time with the appliance. I have experienced this with my first Nintendo DS, which after letting the battery die over and over, would charge for hours on end and only last for a little bit more than half an hour. The way to stop this from happening is quite simple. I have a second generation Ipod, which i have had for about 3 years, and it still has almost full battery life. The trick is to keep the battery more than halfway charged all the time. The only, I repeat, the ONLY time you want the battery to run out is the first use. Yes, that is the opposite of what I just said, but it works. Trust me. I bought a new DS and used the same tactic, though i dont know if it was more than half a battery, and I have had it for almost 4 years, and the only thing wrong with it is the right trigger. I've dropped it several times on the trigger, and that is why sometimes it doesn't work. So, next time you buy a rechargeable appliance, keep this in mind.
