Lithium-ion battery doesn't need to be discharged like older types, in my experience it likes to be kept full most of the time and discharged only occasionally.

Check power options. If you are not using the very lowest power options, you will get a lot less life on stand-alone battery than 'advertised'.

If you are using wireless, bluetooth, the cd/dvd drive a lot, and making the HDD and CPU work hard, these all use more power.

If it's a new computer but you are getting less than say 40 mins useful time while the computer is in continuous use on stand-alone battery, perhaps you could ask Dell?

Tip

Taking Care Of Your Laptop Battery


  1. Normally, a new battery pack comes in a very low charge condition and must be fully charged before use. Refer to the user manual of your portable electronic equipment for charging instructions.
  2. A new Dell Vostro A860 Battery needs to be fully charged and fully discharged or “cycled” as much as five times to condition them into performing at full capacity.
  3. Your equipment may report a fully charge condition in as short as 10 to 15 minutes when the new Dell Vostro 1015 Battery is being charged for the first time. This is a normal phenomenon especially for Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cad) and Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) chemistries. When this happens, remove the dell vostro 1015 battery pack and let it cool down for about fifteen minutes then repeat the charging procedure.
  4. “Conditioning” (fully discharging and then fully charging) is necessary so as to maintain the optimum performance of a sony vgp-bps8 battery, and is recommended at least once a month particularly for Ni-Cad and Ni-MH batteries. Failure to do so could result in reduced charge capacity and can significantly shorten the sony vaio vgn-fz battery pack’s useful life. Lithium Ion batteries do not require conditioning.
  5. It is normal for a acer aspire 1410 battery pack to get warm when charging and during use. However, if the acer aspire 1410 battery pack gets excessive hot, there may be a problem with the portable electronic equipment’s charging circuit and should therefore be checked by a qualified technician.
  6. Rechargeable batteries undergo self-discharging when left unused for long periods of time. This is normal particularly in the case of Ni-MH and Li-Ion chemistries. For best results, always store a battery pack fully charged. It should be removed from the equipment and kept in a cool, dry and clean place.
  7. The amount of runtime a hp 510 battery produces depends on the power requirements of components in your electronic equipment. This could be the hard drive setting, screen intensity and back-lighting on notebook computers, the liquid crystal display (LCD) screen and floodlight feature in a video camcorder, or the tri-mode communications network of a cellular phone. Always refer to your equipment’s user manual for power management settings.

My Dell A840 laptop automatically switch offs while playing a game or surfing many web pages, this never happend before, Battery is showing full charge


The computer is overheating, and is shutting itself down, to prevent heat-related damage.
Turn it off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", shooting air everywhere inside your computer, to try to remove a layer of dust, which is acting like an insulating blanket.
Re-insert the battery.
Restart the computer -- listen to hear that the fan(s) inside the computer are running, i.e., the fans have not "seized", due to being plugged with dust.
Reconnect the AC power.
