HI there,
30 minutes is not long. I've got a few questions for you:
1. When you first booted up your computer, did you leave your battery connected for at least 24 hours? If not, please do so as these type of batteries tend to have a cell memory even though they say on the retail box that it does not.
2. Do you leave the power supply connected to your laptop more than 5 hours when you use it? If the battery is fully charged and still connected, the cells will stay active and end up dying faster than usual. When your battery is fully charged, do not connect your power supply to your computer.
3. What kind of programs do you run on your computer? The standard last time listed on the package is usually when using your computer for business type operations (Microsoft Office, etc.). If you use your computer for gaming, the battery will not last as long. If your alpha is also maxed out, your battery will not last long. The tip I have for this is to go in your User Control Panel and to go click on the Battery Icon. Select the recommended power usage and click apply. This will help keep your battery alive longer.
Hope this helps,
Regards

HP Lap top touch pad locked. How to correct please


By now you probably figured out you have to remove the power cord and battery to turn off the laptop. Let it cool down, 30 minutes or so, and then replace the battery and restart the laptop.

HP lap top Charger light blinks six times?


if it's a new laptop it could indicate that the battery needs to charge for 30 minutes before use. if it's not a new laptop it could mean that the bios configuration is corrupt. if that's the case go to the hp support website and download the latest bios update and reflash your bios.

Why does my phone loose battery power so quickly?


Android phones usually have a lot of junk running in the background. HTC is no exception. You can go into your settings, applications, and kill off some of the ones you don't want running. Some of them you can uninstall too. Check your other settings for the display to make sure it is shutting off after a short time. This should help some, but you should have longer battery life than a 1/2 hour. Look into a "new" battery or an extended battery. This is a longer life battery you can get on ebay or other sites. Make sure you get one that comes with a new back cover to fit over the larger battery. If none of this helps, you might have an issue with the phone & I would consider checking with your carrier for a replacement.

The battery will power your equipment for 30 to 45 minutes, that is normal. What you're thinking of is the lifespan of a lithium battery. It with your battery will last 10 times longer than a regular NiCad battery. So you will be able to charge the battery and use it Hundreds of times before the Battery Life is depleted. Sounds like it's working as designed

How long to charge battery?


bateries have their own specifications.You can read it on the label.But,most of all it must be charge from 12-15 hrs. on its very first charging ( for a new battery) and later on or for the second time and so on, you may charge it 2 to 4 hrs.,sometimes 8 hrs..Leting you know,a battery can be charge even a short span of time,for example is 30 minutes only.In that 30 minutes try to measure its stored volt using a volt meter or a multi-tester,and the result is laready 12 volts (if your batery is 12 volts.)do you believe that? YES.! because a battery is so easy to store power.But,the problem is that its so easy to drain its stored power.You know why?because the current or amper of the baterry is still weak that the given specification.,.So,for short explanation,the longer time you charge your batery equals the longer time to drain the power.For example: when you charge the batery within 4 hours,thus the batery will be drained after 4 hours.

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.
