Can charging my laptop while using it cause a problem?

My daughter always charge my laptop while using it and continue to keep it plugged up while using it for 4 to 5 hours at a time. We had a problem with the battery and had to replace it only about 5 months after buying it.

Hello,

It is never a good idea to do this and here is why...

When you plug your laptop in chances are that it is not completly dead and it has say 15% battery power the next time 31% etc, the system reports that the battery is full however it is actually only full to the last percentage that you used it at

So if you plugged it in at 33% your battery will only have a 33% charge.

Why does the end of the universal keep coming out of the cord


Sounds like you are using the laptop while charging, possibly bending the cord at the plug causing it to come loose. Or maybe you need to hold the plug itself firmly while unplugging from the laptop. Use the laptop on a table or other surface while charging to keep from having this problem.

When your Laptop batteries are fully charged is it a good idea to keep the adapter on?


Remove the adapter when the battery is fully charged, you do not need to have the adapter connected all the time.

Will keeping the ac plug connected kill my battery on Dell latitude d610?


I will suggest you to use laptop after it is full charge by removing the charger . when ever you feel battery is down then you can plug in the charger and keep using it, and when ever you see battery is full then remove the charger.
I'll not suggest you keep plugged in the charger when you are done, this way it can effect your Battery. and yes your battery can die with in a year if you are not follwing the correct way to use it.

Acer aspire 5935g battery problem


Many users do not use their notebook/notebook batteries correctly. The battery in a laptop/notebook/netbook is a rechargeable battery, like the battery in a Cellphone, a Digital Camera an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player. This type of battery needs to both charge and discharge, if it is to perform to its maximum capacity and have a full, long life.

You would never dream of using a Cellphone, Digital Camera, an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player only with the devices permanently connected to the mains electricity, because they are all devices that are designed to be used while the user is moving around whether indoors or outdoors, powered by their rechargeable batteries. the batteries of such devices are only recharged when the charge in their cells is depleted and then only for as long as it takes to restore full charge to them.

As with the other devices mentioned, a laptop/notebook/netbook's battery is designed for mobile use and the user should charge it to 100% full and then stop charging it to then use the device on battery power alone, until the battery is low on power, when the recharging cycle can then be repeated.

A notebook/netbook has more flexibility than the other devices mentioned because, unlike the other devices, it can also be powered directly from the mains electricity, without the battery installed.

If your laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used away from the home or office, it is fine to leave the battery permanently installed. If, however, it is mainly used indoors at home or at work and always or almost always on exactly the same desk or table, then it makes little sense to use it either on battery power alone or with the battery permanently installed.

Charge the battery up to full charge and then disconnect the battery from the device and keep it safely for when you next need to use the laptop/notebook/netbook on the move (if the battery is stored for long periods it may require additional recharging to both maintain the battery's condition and to keep it fully charged because low level power dissipation takes place in a disconnected battery). Then connect the device to the mains electricity without the battery and continue using it like that.

If the laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used in a single permanent indoor location, then charging has to stop when the battery has reached 100% full charge and should only be resumed when the device gives a low battery charge warning.

It is also important not to let rechargeable batteries drain completely by ignoring the low battery charge warming and continuing to use the device until the battery runs out of charge and the device powers down suddenly. Sudden shutdowns like this are neither good for the battery nor the device and can shorten the lifespan of both.

Continuing to charge any rechargeable battery when it has already been fully charged damages and shortens the life of the battery. It can even damage the internal Power Management System of the device if done over a sustained period of time and/or for prolonged periods of time.

When your notebook only shows 75% as the maximum charging level, this is an indication that one or more (probably two) of the individual cells that make up the battery are fully depleted, damaged and probably no longer capable of storing a charge, for the reasons given above. You should stop charging this battery after it has reached 75%, otherwise more cells are likely to become damaged and so on until the entire battery is dead, unresponsive and useless.

My daughters Acer wont charge so the battery is dead. The laptop wont even come on when the charger is plugged in but i have an Acer an charged her battery in mine then it charged and it worked in hers. Is...


first try to use your charger into another laptop, if the the another laptop was charged using your charger, it means your battery is the problem, but if it is still not charging it means the problem is your charger. then try your battery to use it into another laptop, as same as the i mention in the charger, if they or both fine, maybe the problem is the batery terminal of your laptop.

Yes i bought an emachine laptop and had it for a while now, and i was wondering, i always use it and leave it charge all night well now it won't charge at all and it won't even turn on !! Can you please...


Hi,
There could be to reasons , that the laptop is not charging.
1. The battery may have reached end of its charging cycle( Laptop batteries need to be replaced after 1 year to 1.5 Years of use)
2. A faulty ac adapter can also cause the same issue.

The best step forward, would be first try checking it with an alternate adapter.

Thanks for using Fixya

My new battery won't take a charge. HP Dv1170us


Are you sure everything is plugged in correctly? Look on the cord and make sure there are no "shorts" in it becuase sometimes it can have a "short" circuit to it, even if it's new!
