How to enlarge your notebook batteries life

Most of our time, the capacity of our notebook battery is not enough for our work and life. If you don’t have money for Apple Macbook , Dell and HP that have acclaimed battery life of 8 hours, this few tips will help to enlarge your notebook battery life a little longer:

1. Use only the power cord that came with your notebook or other authorized replacement.

2. When you don’t use it, follow the correct maintenance for your notebook.

3. Don't leave it in direct sunlight, areas where it will be exposed to extreme temperatures such as car trunks.

4. If your notebook has power management features, use it, so the system will run at lower processor speeds when enabling power management features and it will go into "sleep" mode faster when inactive.

5. Buy notebooks with internal Li-Ion batteries. Non Li-Ion batteries must be fully discharged and recharged every 2-3 weeks.

6. If you don't use your notebook for a period of time, you must fully discharge then recharge it, so the battery will last longer.

it turns off randomly, then take a few goes to get back on


I think the connection in Macbook is damaged, it's better to take it back to Apple and check, and if there is warranty is good too.

Any tips on extending the life of a Macbook Pro battery?


My suggestion would be to buy a new battery.

After that you should shut down your computer at night (or every other night) and make sure you don't leave it plugged in for a long time (only charge until it is 100% then unplug).

These are two of the most important things towards ensuring significant battery life.

Hope that helps!

Short battery life


$orry, theres no fix to this, after a while batterys begin to die and the life becomes shorter. this could be due to leaving it on charge all day and night and not letting it frequently loose and gain charge again. even my laptop battery has began to lose its battery length - but ive had my battery for a long time. purchase a new battery and try to keep from leaving the A/C adapter in over night. you should notice alot longer battery length after that. rate me :)
