I've rarely seen a 7 hours battery capabality for laptops (seen it ownly in notebooks), normaly they last at the most 4 to 5 h. with laptop running in minimal performance mode...

how old is the battery? if it's new it should last aproximately the time of the specified ratings in the laptop's normal use (according to it's manual) if not it could be defective ask for exchange

if it's an old battery you could try to refresh it by draining it down COMPLETELY and charging it back several times (5 to 10 time)

the best way to drain it completely is to boot in to the BIOS (on battery power) and let it drain untill the computer shutt's off, than re-charge, and so on...

Good luck!

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.


1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.

Tip

Looking for the longest battery life laptop ?


We’ve yet to see a Windows laptop with battery life longer than 5~7 hours, unless we add an extended battery to the system. But when hpand dell launched its new series of laptops last week, one big push wasfor longer battery life.

When you purchase your notebook, charge the battery to 100 percent,discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent againto help the battery remember exactly how much electrical charge it canhold. From then on, you’ll never need to completely discharge the laptop battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to “remember to plug in the laptop AC adapter(or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebookswill recharge quickly.” Salinas had another tip for your batteries:“Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a battery’s worstenemy,” he said

Hope the list can give you some help when you purchase a laptop or battery:

Hi ive got a samsung galaxy s2 and the battery life is really bad. I will charge the phone fully over night and ut wont even last half a day. Is this a commen problem or do u have a dodgy battery


How old is the phone/battery?

Has the battery been fully discharged (used until it will not power up the item) very many times?
This is very bad for Li/Po batteries. If the phone is less than 6-12 months old, I would contact my cell provider and ask for a replacement battery. In lieu of your provider replacing it, your only option will likely be to replace it yourself. Unlike the old-school Ni/Cad rechargeable batteries, Li/Po batteries lose their ability to hold a charge if they are drained fully too many times. Also a good tip with a new battery is to charge it longer than just until the battery power indicator is full (overnight is a good basic rule, but check your phone's user guide or google the specific battery model for recommended charge times) for the first few charges, and avoid letting it fully discharge. Try to get it on a charger with at least 1 or 2 bars left. This will increase the life of a cell phone battery dramatically.

hope this helps,

After full charge, battery lasts about 1 day, with only "device usage" on the battery.


Hi, when a phone battery is fully charged and it does not stay long to power the phone,You might need to replace the phone battery.

Phone batteries has cells inside them that determines how long the battery life will last..When these cell dies, it will be unabletopower upthe phonefortoo long and the phone will go off..

To solve the problem of charging a battery and notlasting too long,you will need to replace the phone battery with a new one.

You can get a replacement battery battery from nearest outlet store around your area...


Warning before you buy a new battery, make sure that the phone does not get hot when you insert the battery inside the phone...Because that is not a battery fault. It's a phone board problem.

Take care and thanks for using fixya...

Charged cell phone


do not charge your mobile battery each night for best battery use, you need to charge the phone only when the battery is completely dead.

You should take the phone and have it fully check and service
