Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell b130 My laptop never kept a battery charge for more than 1/2 hour. But now after only owning it for a year the battery is telling me it is nearing the end of its life span. Surely batteries should last longer than 1 year. Can you offer any suggestions. I have already been using power management. I am afraid that if I buy another dell battery I will still get this sort of crumby service from it.

Dell batteries are really supplied by Sony. The probolem with Batteries is you never no what your going to get or just how long it will last. My suggestion would be to get a new battery, this battery may have been bad from the beginning. A bad battery can do severe damage to your laptop, so I would not keep using it. In addition for some odd reason I have found that with these batteries, they are some how linked with the PC software, and if they are bad the error follows the HDD. So you may want to get rid of that battery and not use it again!

Tip

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.

I have a problem in my dell laptop battery. I have charge alomost 1 hours and is show full battery and time backup is 1 hour and 30 min. then after 20 min. it shown 35 min. backup


The battery may be near the end of its usable life. As batteries age, they cannot store a charge as long as they used to. Also, if the battery is constantly being charged, this could cause the battery to lose its ability to keep a charge. The best option is to replace the battery.
Please rate my solution to let me know how I'm doing. Thank you!

How long is the battery on a HP Pavilion dv9000 supposed to last?


Laptop batteries will usually last from 1.5 to 5 hours, depending upon the demand, the battery and the use. Sound burns up a lot of juice as does the DVD player so if you're watching movies or playing games an hour is about right. You can purchase a better HP PAVILION DV9000 Battery with 12 cell , it will work longger.

Battery Charge light flashing 4 red one green Dell Inspiron 9200


usually, its an indication that the battery is nearing the end of its useful life. you can try to use another battery to isolate it further. If the same thing happens with another battery, chances are, the mobo is failing. Flashing the BIOS can usually help with battery issues. If another battery works fine and your computer is within its first year since you bought it, you can request a replacement battery from Dell

BATTERY FAILURE PURCHASED JUNE 2007


Your battery pack has a typical life-span determined more in hours of use than by length of time owned. When they're near the end they won't hold a charge. This happens with cordless phones, cell phones etc. Batteries also come in different sizes (capacity/lifespan). People also use their machines and batteries differently - so it's hard to compare with someone else. When you get a new battery, get a higher capacity and use the power cord to keep the laptop charging as much as possible. - hope this helps :)
