The Most Important Considerations of Using Laptop Battery

1, when no external power supply situation, if the working conditions at the time slot being less than PCMCIA cards, it is recommended to remove the card first to extend battery life.
2, room temperature (20-30 degrees) for optimum battery working temperature, the temperature is too high or too low, the operating environment will reduce battery time.
3, can provide stable power supply environment, using a laptop computer, remove the battery for extended battery life is not right by. On Asus notebooks, when fully charged battery, the battery charging circuit will automatically shut down, so the phenomenon of overcharging does not occur.
4, the recommended average of three months to conduct a battery power correction action.
5, to minimize the number of NIKON en-el3e battery
The battery charge and discharge is directly related to life, one charge, the battery a step forward to retirement. Suggest that you use an external power supply,
6, the use of an external power supply when the battery removed.
Some users often plug the power several times a day, and the laptop is equipped with batteries, do more damage to the battery. Because each access to the equivalent of an external power supply to charge the battery once the battery life shortened by a natural.
7, after the exhaustion of battery charge and avoid the long charging time
Regardless of your notebook to use nickel-metal hydride or lithium electricity, to power after the exhaustion of a certain charge (charge less than 1%), which is the best way to avoid the memory effect. Lithium also have memory effect, but its memory effect smaller than nickel-metal hydride Bale.
8, the usual precautions
When used in peacetime to prevent exposure to prevent damp to prevent the erosion of chemical liquids, avoid contact with the metal battery contacts, etc. happen.
When you purchase your laptop battery
Laptop battery life - as no more than 3 to 4 years, it may be users of the most likely to replace things. Two years after the laptop, you will find the battery consumption and faster. If possible, you can replace the old batteries for new batteries to ensure the stable operation of the computer.
When the need to replace the notebook computer batteries, best to choose the same type of battery replacement. However, if the old computer using a nickel-metal hydride batteries, to make a longer battery life, of course, can also be specified by the computer user manual or manufacturers recommended models use lithium batteries. Although the nickel-metal hydride batteries for cheap, but there is memory effect, and in the same capacity than the lithium batteries under the weight of large, and lithium batteries have no memory effect, light weight, power supply for a long time, etc., has become a standard notebook computer batteries . Lithium batteries used in notebook computers at this stage because the different manufacturers in the power of time there are some gaps, and friends in the purchase process should be noted that different brands of the difference in the Sony vgp-bsp13/s Battery, the best among several brands compare.
Performance battery power supply in addition to the stated time manufacturers, but also need to pay attention to their capacity. Battery capacity is usually AH (ampere-hour, ampere-hour) calculated with the current laptop is 4000AH most about, and a battery can last for 2 hours or more. In addition to the battery power supply time by the whole power of computers and the impact of factors such as heat dissipation, the screen size (bigger and more power), screen brightness, and the implementation of the work and so will affect the power of time.
Now the price of laptop battery up and down the ocean in 1000, accounting to 10% of overall price notebook - about some of the ultra-thin models or even higher. The battery warranty period, is guaranteed 3 months, and is guaranteed six months, the longest, but also for 1 year; the reason why the warranty time is short battery laptop battery is easy because of consumables, the number of charge is constant, with a little time. Moreover, the laptop battery and other hardware different, there is no room for repairs, can only be a new one. The products of such a long warranty (replacement), intangibles to increase the burden on manufacturers, so buy laptop, be sure ask the battery warranty period and conditions.
Also in the purchase of second-hand laptop computers, they also do not forget to try it inside the battery can continue to work long. Under normal circumstances, the use of one or two years after the laptop is fully charged, the nickel-metal hydride battery can support about 1 hour or so computers at work, lithium-ion battery can support nearly 3 hours, but relative to the terms of this new battery requirements are already very low, and able to meet this target from the scrap to the battery of far away.
Causes of Damage Laptop Battery
Notebook computer CANON nb-6l battery a long time, often charge less for electricity, and even shows the battery is damaged, the specific performance of a larger resistance, the voltage across the charging up faster. So easy to charge control circuit is judged to have been filled, the capacity will naturally decline. Since the battery internal resistance is relatively large, the discharge voltage drop when a large, fast, so the system is easy to mistakenly believe that the voltage is not enough, lack of electricity. Comparison of the discovery of short battery life, should take appropriate measures.

Bent pins on Gateway Solo 1450 pcmcia slot.


It would be difficult to remove and replace the PCMCIA slot on any laptop. Buy her a USB wireless adapter from Linksys or DLink. It would be easier and less expensive for you.

compaq presario c300 usb problem


Well instead of repairing it have you tried an external usb pcmcia card? They are cheep and mine is usb2 4 port on a pcmcia and works fine. Just a sugestion for you. It runs about $14.00. I ave a 900 Compaq and the first to go was the dvd/cd [ replaced ] then the battery [ running off a cordless drill battery now ] and then the usb. I know your question was about fixing this but an easier way is described above. Over current on the usb port is no problem with the pcmcia 4 port usb card as if you need more current, it comes with an external power supply only if needed. I have never had to use this external supply yet. It supplies [ the card ] up to 800ma.
Hope this helped a little...

pci card slot


Dennis,

Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can not say with 100% certainty.

However this is a common place that laptop manufacturers put what is called a PCMCIA slot. This serves much the same function as a PCI slot does in a Desktop unit with a couple of exceptions. the cards that fit into this slot are completely housed in a metal sheath (To meet FCC regulations about interference) and the cards are typically smaller, and are "Hotswappable" which means they can be removed and replaced in the laptop without powering down and rebooting.

THere are Many adapters that can use this slot from Ethernet cards, to WiFI adapters, and even external Audio cards.

PCMCIA cards come in "Type I" and "Type II" varieties. All PCMCIA slots are type I compatable but before you buy a type II card be sure to check for compatability.

Depending on your manufacturers spec's for THAT model laptop you may have as few as on slot or many stacked one on top of each other.

Hope this helps you,
Dave

Where is the firewire port?


Confirm that the laptop has a PCMCIA card slot. If so, you can get a Firewire PCMCIA card and communicate at near bus speeds on the laptop. That will be a lot faster than the USB port. Almost any Firewire PCMCIA will work. Just make sure that slot is in your chassis.

NEC USB 2.0 CARDBUS CARD


Your problem is a power overload on the USB 2.0 card. If you plug in a 5volt power supply to the USB 2.0 PCM/CIA card, it will solve your problem. You can also use any USB port on your computer to plug in an A-A USB cable to power the PCM/CIA card and it should resolve the lockup. Also, check and make sure you have enough RAM memory in your comptuer for Windows XP. Recommend 512, but runs much better on 1024 (1 gig) of RAM.
