Re: how to increase battery life
90 minutes of battery life is very good compared to most, unless you have the latest fueled battery.
Normally a laptop can be set to turn off the wireless adapter when not in use and also the brightness level can be reduced and the processor speed can be set to low, enabling only word processing etc to be able to run at a reasonable speed.

To increase the battery operating timeline you can do a number of things. These usually include dimming the screen, adjusting the power setting to turn the screen off after 10 minutes and stop the hard drive from spinning when idle after a period of time too.
Results will vary from laptop to laptop and depends if the quoted 6 hours 30 minutes time frame is an actual recorded time of usage off ac or based on windows assumption and estimation.
Windows power management can only tell you the time in which battery power is maintainable for based on the consumption rate at the time. With this being said start up and playing games will utilise more power that say word processing after the initial startup has cooled down.
Some laptops can be operated without the battery however there are an increasing number of laptops these days being manufactured without this option. You can attempt to operate it without the battery and doing so will not damage the laptop in any way. If anything it will maintain the life expectancy of the battery.
Most of the customers complain that they run out of battery very soon, the battery life is very poor.
The Tip Here Is.
We need to use the laptop with the power connected, use the battery when we could not find the power outlet to hook up the laptop, this will increase the battery usage. If you use the Laptop on battery even you have the power option, then the battery life decreases as most of the time you use laptop on batteries.
Hope that this tip will increase the battery life of your battery.
I have a interesting tip to increase your
Laptop's battery life. There is no matter, laptop manufactures gives
the guarantee about the battery that how long it works. The battery of
laptop always stops working very early at some stage in essential
research, just like when you are watching a DVD movie.
Follow the few steps to increase the laptop battery's life :
1. Lower the
backlighting on your screen.
The screen of your Laptop
takes up significant amount of power and you
do not require its maximum brightness. You should have to check your
system and decrease the screen brightness it to a comfortable point.
2. Stop your wireless
signal when you are not using.
After turning off your
Laptop can save max. 20 minutes of your laptop's
battery time because WiFi can use a considerable quantity of power. By
right clicking you can stop your WiFi signal when you are not using.
3. Manage the
power scheme in XP Windows XP
number of predetermined power plans, which control settings like how
rapidly your laptop turns off and when your screen saver boots in. You
can change your laptop power scheme by choosing Control Panel >
Options. For max. Battery life from the "Power scheme" chooses the
option "Max. Battery" and decline the list. There are good choices for
you just like "Low Power Mode" and Portable /Laptop. They don't
as much power as Max Battery. After selecting a power scheme you click
Ok button to finish the process.

2 hours is enough for a battery to be completely charged...
Once the battery is charged you can remove the power supply and use the laptop till the battery drains up to 10% to 14%......
This will increase the life time of battery... If you keep on charging the battery continuously when using your laptop, then the battery life will be shortened very soon...
So charge and drain the battery properly... This will increase the life time of battery...
Hey Guys!!! wanna know a secret on how to increase life of your laptop battery... It's too simple but most of us do this mistake which results in declining life of the battery... Let me tell you what not to do....Never overcharge your laptop battery, ya u heard it correct whenever extra charge goes into your battery it really affects your battery life and performance...In other words as soon as your battery is charged unplug the charger immediately ...
you may try:
1) check the battery alarm at windows power managment, to set 5-10% alarm level.
2) discharge the battery to the empty then charge longer time, you need monitoring how long it charged (see charge lights change), need to change new one if charging time much less then before(less then 10-20 minutes)..
3) plug-in AC adapter monitoring charging current,
this step you need a current meter to make a series connection in the circuite, the battery is over life cycle if the current less then 500mA.
