I shut down power to my UPS for a few hours and now it will only run off of internal battery even though 120vac is available. Will they not charge and supply power at the same time? Any suggestions?

there should be a reset button on the UPS that may have tripped when you shut down the power
they normally run the electronics and trickle charge the battery at the same time

Save the Dell battery power

It is not that the battery has expired during the flight of important meeting or during long distance. Even though the technology has advanced, the time the notebook PC of the battery lasts on a single charge is limited. It is important to take full advantage of the power that can be used.

At any time you might have you already how the power of the notebook PC can be secured.

It's laptop battery is never cheap.

Even if you always use the AC adapter, since the emergency and is no use when used in battery mode does not make sense, there is software for not as much deterioration as possible battery is something happy.

Even so, well it is possible to have Na ~ ThinkPad is.

You can replacement purchases a personal computer, you might be happy to buy a personal computer that is attached anti said software when you buy new.

Whether laptop for a better power supply that was being? We have been asked many questions that.

The following is an excerpt from BIGLOBE of e-mail magazine. Please refer to.

"Compared to when you buy a laptop, battery less of became fast", "as much as possible the laptop battery want to last longer!" To anyone who wants.

In order to preserve as much as possible the life of the G74SX battery, I will introduce a point and tricks you want to be careful!

Caution those who have this kind of use!

Did you mean, why not or not use while charging the laptop?

Many, lithium-ion batteries of the battery being used in laptop battery. This battery, charging becomes violently degradation and followed by a state that is a 100 percent, I would shrink the life of the battery (?) is.


Attention also anyone who "every day, have a charge the laptop before going to bed." Battery has been said that the number of times that can be charged about 500 times. In addition, the battery as long as they continue to charge, tries to keep 100% of the full charge. However, in practice, always because it has happened discharge is in the personal computer, it is finely repeatedly that state because charging, the consumption ? battery charge the battery is 100% ? discharge.

Therefore, you can not use while plugged the AC adapter into an electrical outlet in the same sense as the desktop personal computer, and has a charge every day, the life of the Sony battery will become more and more short.

Smartphones, also has been used a lithium ion battery and the laptop. This article also ne please refer to!

? To extend battery life, the three causes of the daily ed] & battery deterioration to note this!

? In the article, the life of the battery, it points a state in which the capacity is reduced by half, which can be charged as compared to when new.

And ... in order to prolong the life of the battery

The first is, that it is not used while charging the laptop.

As mentioned above, using a laptop while plugged the AC adapter into an electrical outlet, the life of the rechargeable battery will become more and more short. "Less likely to bring a laptop to the outside, it is often used in a fixed location of the room," anyone who wants to, there is also a hand in that, should remove the battery except when you carry around.

The second is, that you do not blindly charge.

If you have to charge every day, it is will be increased, but the number of charges by that amount of course. And such as a battery is charged only when the cut 20%, you can reduce the number of charges to be decide my own rules.

Third, that the bear in mind as much as possible to 80% charge.

If there is an item that can be set the state of charge of the battery of the laptop power settings, it can be set so as not to be in full charge (?).

I have to try that "sub-zero beer" to drink at home, "Strong via cooler"

For example, in the case of certain laptop DELL, proceeds HP charging battery in the Control Panel ? Power Options ? desktop mode, you can set the use of the from the desktop mode tab, battery.

? Whether or not there is a power setting, it is more on the model of the laptop

The battery is a consumable. Please, let as much as possible long-lasting using it well!

Why does my samsung 2 tablet have to be powered off to charge

Difficult to diagnose without more information on the device's operating system version and what apps are installed on the device.

A faulty (or mischievous) app may keep your device so busy it'll use up electric charge more quickly than a simple wall charger can replenish. Under normal conditions, a full charge should be good for roughly 7 hours of mild tablet use. Is battery life dramatically shorter than this, even if you don't actively use it? Does it get unusually hot?

Other causes may be faulty hardware (battery, charging circuitry, charger, cables or connector); my gut feeling is on the misbehaved app, though.

Samsung galaxys 2 drain battery fast

The power cell should only get warm if you have it powered on all of the time. That is natural. 6 hours is short, and that may be one of two problems, the time of charge is too short, or the battery is dying. HINT! If you replace with a NEW battery; you must set the battery memory for the start. That means, when you first charge it, make certain it gets a long 24 hour charge to full. Use the phone until the device shuts down because the battery was exhausted. Now Do a full long term Charge. That process will set a Memory for the Power Cell and allow you to fully charge and discharge the battery from there on. One more thing...if you use a Charger Device, make certain it is working OK or else the Battery will not charge well.

My laptop won't charge even it is plugged in.

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Loue Benison.

The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:
1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think senerio 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test senerio 3 by removing the battery and pluging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.
If it does power on then that rules out senerio 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

Take care!

Charging problem ; charger is ok but it seems like there is a problem with the actual internal charging device.

There could e a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
