You can increase the battery "life" in terms of how long it will last you before it is no good. You can't increase the battery "life" in terms of how long it runs your machine on a single charge, you can just delay its deterioration.
Apple has posted a simple battery conditioning procedure to accomplish these goals:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490
A number of vendors on the net sell replacement batteries for Apple laptops that claim to have more capacity than the original batteries.
The more routinely you follow Apple's conditioning recommendations, the longer your battery will last.

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.

Lenovo Ideapad Z570: Battery indicator shows the Power is plugged in & charging. But the Battery charge percentage doesn't increase. How to fix this?


The battery might be nearing the end of it's useful life and needs to be replaced. The battery only lasts for so long then it has to be replaced.

Buy a battery on ebay base on your computer's Make and model, not the model of the battery.

How long must a battery be on charge for it to be fully charged.


2 hours is enough for a battery to be completely charged...

Once the battery is charged you can remove the power supply and use the laptop till the battery drains up to 10% to 14%......
This will increase the life time of battery... If you keep on charging the battery continuously when using your laptop, then the battery life will be shortened very soon...
So charge and drain the battery properly... This will increase the life time of battery...

How to increase notebook battary backup


Hi, the problem is you cant without buying a new battery but what they dont tell you and should tell you is this.

when your using your notebook off the mains you should remove the battery as this keeps it working at its best only use the battery when you need to and after give it a full charge then leave it out whilst you use the notebook on the mains.

leaving the battery in will sap the life out of the battery and you will end up needing a new battery every few months as it just wont hold the charge as it did when new.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Rechargeable battery cannot be charged despite continous plug in of AC cord of charger


Battery is probably dead. Will need to purchase new one, not repairable. When replacing, do not buy "new" battery that has been sitting around on a shelf for several years. Will have much shorter life. Insist on battery that has been made within the last year, maybe 18 months at most. Expect to pay $50 to $125. To increase battery life, try not the let them fully discharge when using. Most recommendations are keeping them above 10% charge.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

Thanks

How to increase battery life


90 minutes of battery life is very good compared to most, unless you have the latest fueled battery. Normally a laptop can be set to turn off the wireless adapter when not in use and also the brightness level can be reduced and the processor speed can be set to low, enabling only word processing etc to be able to run at a reasonable speed.
