Re: acer 3002 laptop battery life

What make is your machine? Try to buy an extended battery pack which can last almost twice the normal battery attached. Also buy a battery certified by your Computer Manufacturer only. A Chinese make or a locally made battery will only damage your machine.

My acer aspire 5535, amd turion x2battery runs out faster than it used to

The battery starts a slow decline over months and years, eventually you will notice the time between charges gets less and less until you are down to minutes, this quite normal for these batteries. The average life span is one to three years for most batteries before replacement is required.

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.

Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

Acer aspire notebook 5810tz. battery charging light stays on blue. battery will not charge has less than 20% computer will shut down when power cord is detached

Sorry to say but it sounds as if your battery is nearing the end of it's life. How long have you had this problem for? and how long have you had your laptop? Battery's let alone computer's don't have much more than a 5 year life span, that is if there maintained properly. My HP Pavilion is starting to slow after having it to 2 years, and battery life seems to have shorten by 30min. Well I hope this isn't the case as battery's are quite costy. But if this helps in any way, best of luck!

Compaq EL81 laptop. Battery will not charge. Laptop powers/boots up with battery installed but shuts down after a few minutes. Removed the battery, power up and unit now stays on. Bad battery?

The battery in my laptops only seem to last 1 or 2 years.

Yes, I would say it's a bad battery.

Try to get a higher capacity one from I upgraded from a 6 cell (1 or 2 hours of battery life) to a 9 cell (3 or 4 hours of battery life) on my Acer Aspire for about $39.

Prices will vary depending on make and model and capacity.

My toshiba laptop computer has very short battery life when it is not plugged in. It will also shut off quite frequently at times and will take a while to restart (it will turn on but it takes a few tries...

How old is the battery? Most laptops and notebooks only have a 3 year battery life, and if you have run it down too far, or never ran it down at all, the life can be even shorter than that. With nicad they say it is best to use them until they stop working. But lithium batteries are best kept topped up I hear. If the batter is over 2 years old, time to replace I think.

Low Battery life on Acer Aspire

I would first make sure that the AC is working. If the computer works on AC then it should be fine. I have had several batteries that lasted only a year. If you leave it plugged in all the time, that will do it. It is best to charge it and then use it on battery several times a week. Hope this helps some :>)

Battery time too less

Dude battery technology sucks it just happens. Try charging it fully, and letting it drain all the way down a few times. You will add some time to its life. If you want to get a new battery type in your computer model into ebay + "battery"and install it yourself.
