It is OK but you should also use the laptop on the battery as well.

SOURCE: VAIO VGNTZ150N Laptop battery runs down when not in use

If the laptop is gone into a suspended mode it is still powered on but sleeping. This will continue to use power and will power down the battery over time.

You could enable hibernation which saves the current state of your pc so that when you activate it again it restores to your previous state of work. This will use close to no battery power to perform.

How is your power supply? does it seem like you have to wiggle your cord that connects to computer to make it recieve power?...Many laptops power supply become loose over time form moving the cord around..when it does, the battery has a hard time getting electric power to recharge. Also, you my have other problems with your lithium internal battery that powers your cmos.

Check to see if your power supply is loose and go from there. the power supply is the little hole where you connect the cord to the laptop.

let me know what the status is

There is a smart circuit in the battery. Is sounds liek your smart circuit has failed. This will not affect the function of hte battery at first, but you need to get it replaced. This is how windows tracks the battery life, condition, and keeps the battery at peak condition. There might be a "reinitialization" application that might have come with your battery as well (some high level batteries have this) and it will recondition the battery and reset the logic circuit on the battery. I would highly suggest replacing the battery though if you do not remember having this software package. The logic circuit can not be replaced, and is generally there to keep you from installing generic batteries into the dell battery box. I hope that helps you in understanding what those lights are..

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Tip

Battery Backup


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.

LAPTOP BATTERY LIFE


Upon every charge and discharge cycle, the charge holding capacity of the batteries decreases and ultimitately battery worns out and needs replacement. To enhance the battery life, it is recommended to run the laptop on AC power adaptor (if it is available) and in case of AC inavailability, dont drain the battery completely. Use the laptop on battery only when extremely necessary.<br /> <br /> Good Luck!<br /> CreativeTECH

My laptop battery says consider replacing the battery


Hi,
Windows 7 on laptops continuously monitors the charge holding capacity of the battery and starts warning well before time (when the charge holding capacity of the battery decreases below 40%). The battery may still capable of holding charge and will give good back-up, which means you don't have to replace it (not at least now). However, you may replace it when the back-up time would decrease considerably.
If the battery is still providing backup, you can turn off the message by clicking the notification icon and turning off the notification (un-check) as shown below: -

You may like to refer to Article from Microsoft for further details
Please note that upon every charge and discharge the charge holding capacity of the batteries decreases and ultimately battery becomes dead and needs to be replaced. To enhance the battery life, it is recommended to run the laptop on AC power adapter (if it is available) and in case of AC unavailability, don't drain the battery completely. Use the laptop on battery power only when extremely necessary.
About buying a new battery, I would suggest that the battery may be bought from authorized dealer of the manufacturer or any computer store but most importantly, I suggest that you buy a new genuine battery (not any replacement), as genuine battery would last longer and serve you best.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My battery always stays charged, so why is my laptop telling me that i need to replace my battery?


Hi,the reason why your laptop is telling you to replace Battery is,you have killed your battery without knowing by Charging it always,since you have constant power supply,you should at least after getting a new Battery,discharge it four to five times a week longer life of battery,by these i mean,unplug cord from mains let power drain to 5% or 10% before charging again while working and if fully charged and you are not making use of it disconnect and if you want to make use of it use battery instead do not connect immediately to mains until power drains from battery.Just like your mobile phone,you only charge it when need be(ie. when Battery is Low).

Care for your laptop battery to get the maximum life out of it.


Thanks for the info mate. Also to mention that some HP laptops have air vents at bottom, so they cant be placed on bed or even lap for a long time. This causes overheating, and again reduces the battery life.

Battery life is very short


Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.

Laptop battery wot charge to 100%


Please help us help you.....

1. Brand of laptop
2. Model of laptop

Alot of laptop batteries decrease in charge value throughout use. If your laptop is an HP it has a battery restore program with the orginal software sent with your HP laptop. It takes an overnight commitment to let the program run but it usally restores the life of the laptop battery. Another solution would to be buy a new one off ebay.
