Question about Samsung N150 (36725723009) Netbook

1 Answer

Most user reviews place this netbook's battery life at minimum 5 hours at maximum capacity, and at leat 7 or 8 hours at minimum capacity. Can anyone tell me then why my battery only goes up to 5 hours at minimum capacity (screen brightness low, bluetooth off, even deep functions in Windows turned off, e.g. indexing, etc). Obviously, something's wrong here. Is my battery screwed and should I buy a new one? Note: I can imagine that the Malaysian temperatures strain the fan a little, but this should skew the results that much...

Battery manufacturing can vary, along with review circumstances. Your battery may need to be reconditioned (Drained the battery to empty, charge to full, drain to empty, repeat) so that it can use it's full potential. There is also the chance though, that your battery is just in poor health due to overuse or manufacturing defect. If reconditioning is no help, then call Samsung and complain that your battery isn't lasting as long as it should be, and they may send you a new battery.

How to change the battery of a Bugatti Vera kettle


The battery is rechargeable.

c) Battery
The battery can be removed and replaced by user because it is placed inside the handle (3). The battery
life is over 2 years. After that period the battery still has 70% capacity. When the display (2) cannot stay ON,
while the kettle (4) is removed from the power base (5), means that the battery has reached its minimum
level capacity.

Contact an authorised Bugatti Customer Service Center in order to change the battery : the service center
will send you the battery pack and its replacement instruction. Attention : remember that the batteries are
consumable parts and they are out of warranty

Differences between netbooks and laptops


How do you tell the difference between laptops and netbooks and decide which factors are most important to you? Is it size, weight, operating system, CPU, cost, battery life, or what ?

Some differences between netbooks and laptops :-

1. Screen size
A general rule of thumb for a netbook is screen size between 7 and approximately 10 inches. Laptop screen size will generally vary between 12 inches 17 inches. There are some exceptions to these common sizes as a few manufacturers have made netbook computers with screens as large as 11 inches and some ultra portable laptop computer have been made with screens as small as 11 inches. There are also some laptops with screens as large as 20 inches. However at that size the concept of portability vanishes due to the overall size and weight of the laptop (or is it a portable desktop?).

2. Weight
A key factor in laptop and netbook computer design is the relationship between size and weight. Netbooks are smaller than laptops and weigh less. An average weight for a netbook is between 2.5 and 3.0 pounds. Mainstream laptop computers will be in the 5 to 7 pound range. Some premium ultra portable laptops can weigh in as low as 3 to 4 pounds. Screen size also directly effects computer weight as a larger screen is heavier. Plus the larger screen requires a larger, heavier battery to power the screen.

3. Battery life
The battery life between chargings for laptop and netbook computers varies dramatically. Most netbooks promise a battery life between 5 and 10 hours. Some older models are still in the 3+ hours range with some newer models achieving a battery life of up to 14 hours between charging. Most laptops will deliver a battery life between 3 and 5 hours. However with recent technology advances some moderately priced laptops are offering battery life between 7 and 12 hours per charge.

4. CPU & Processing Power
If there is one area where the difference between netbook computers and laptops computers is clear it is in processing power. From all perspectives laptop computers have more processing power than netbooks.
The vast majority of netbooks use the Intel Atom NP450 CPU with earlier netbook models using an earlier version of the Atom. Laptops use more powerful CPUs including the Intel Core Duo, Core 2 Duo or, more recently, one of the Intel i3, i5 or i7 CPUs. Ultra low voltage versions of some of these CPUs are also used in some ultra light laptops. Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) also produces CPUs that are commonly used in laptops including their Turion and Athlon CPU product lines.

5. Optical Drives (CD/DVD)
CD/DVD drives are another clear area of difference. Netbooks do not have an internal CD or DVD drive. You must buy an external drive or download all software from the Internet. You can buy an external CD/DVD drive that connects via the USB port and costs approximately $50.
A large majority of laptop computers include a built-in CD/DVD drive. Some ultra portable laptops do not have an internal drive but come with an external CD/DVD drive as standard equipment.

6. Price
The majority of netbooks are priced in the $275 to $400 range. Laptops can range from $400 at the very low end to over $2,000 for some ultra light systems and high powered gaming laptops. By their basic design laptop computers have more flexibility in the final configuration.
Another item to consider in any cost comparison is the fact that netbook computers do not come with a CD/DVD drive. An external CD/DVD drive will add $50 to the cost. Larger, extended life batteries are also available for many netbooks. Some models come with the more powerful batteries as standard equipment otherwise the longer-life battery will add $50 - $75 to the cost. So when adding in the cost of an external CD/DVD drive and an extended life battery your netbook could end up closer to the $375 - $450 price range.

7. Operating System
Most laptops are now shipping with Windows 7 Home Premium. Most netbook computers now ship with Windows 7 Starter Edition installed. The Starter Edition is similar to Home Premium although it cannot utilize the features of the Windows 7 Aero advanced graphical interface. Due to the lower processing power and the reduced graphics processing capabilities of netbooks the less demanding version of Windows 7 Starter Edition is a much better fit.
Some laptops are still available with Windows XP although they are mainly focused on business world. Laptops with Windows XP are available direct from manufacturers (Dell, Lenovo, etc.) or through corporate resellers. All laptops sold in retail stores include Windows 7.

8. Graphics Capabilities
As mentioned in the Operating System section above, netbooks have significantly less power for processing complex graphics. Laptops have a more powerful CPU than netbooks plus many laptops have an additional powerful graphics processor which assists in providing higher screen resolutions, enhanced video processing capabilities and the power to play computer games. A netbook is not the optimal solution for playing computer games or watching DVDs or videos.

Review Asus Eee PC 1101 HA



asus-eee-pc-1101ha.jpg The Eee PC 1101HA netbook with a 11.6-inch display. For this and its characteristics could be defined almost a notebook. Obviously, a larger than normal netbook weighs more, but the Asus Eee PC 1101HA is a netbook with mobile calling. Asus Eee PC 1101HA promises up to eleven hours of PA3420U-1BRS battery life, thanks to the Intel Atom Z520 chip.
Homes and Design
The Eee PC 1101HA has the same form "shell" 1008HA Asus Eee PC. The case is polished and its shape makes it particularly elegant netbook. We noted that despite the gloss paint handprints not remain imprinted on the case easily. This Asus Eee PC 1000H is available in white pearl, black and pink crystal.
The hinges Eee PC 1101 HA self-locking (no mechanical locking) but well hoods that limits the opening angle to a maximum of 130 degrees, this makes little netbook fittings for use legs. The screen however is quite stable.
Autonomy
Asus EeePC 1101 declares that HA is able to provide even eleven hours of VGP-BPS2C battery life. Indeed, the netbook can reach eleven hours, but with the six-cell DV1000 Battery and without Wi-Fi active since our test Eee PC 1101 HA has worked from time to time reaching autonomy of 10, 48 hours. The test was performed with a non-intensive use and without wireless enabled. With wireless enabled netbook's Inspiron XPS M1710 battery life decreases by about three hours.
Weight and Dimensions
The amp 11.6-inch display makes the netbook a bit 'pesantino (1.38 kg) obviously increases the overall dimensions: height 21.80 cm, width 28 cm, depth 19.60 cm.
Judgement
Cast a netbook for mobility, thanks to long HP dv4 Battery life, good performance that does not disdain. We can define Eee PC 1101HA netbook complete. In fact, the hardware equipment enables to easily perform common office work in comfort. With excellent value for money (currently about 360 million) this netbook is among the best in its class.

Acer aspire 5935g battery problem


Many users do not use their notebook/notebook batteries correctly. The battery in a laptop/notebook/netbook is a rechargeable battery, like the battery in a Cellphone, a Digital Camera an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player. This type of battery needs to both charge and discharge, if it is to perform to its maximum capacity and have a full, long life.

You would never dream of using a Cellphone, Digital Camera, an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player only with the devices permanently connected to the mains electricity, because they are all devices that are designed to be used while the user is moving around whether indoors or outdoors, powered by their rechargeable batteries. the batteries of such devices are only recharged when the charge in their cells is depleted and then only for as long as it takes to restore full charge to them.

As with the other devices mentioned, a laptop/notebook/netbook's battery is designed for mobile use and the user should charge it to 100% full and then stop charging it to then use the device on battery power alone, until the battery is low on power, when the recharging cycle can then be repeated.

A notebook/netbook has more flexibility than the other devices mentioned because, unlike the other devices, it can also be powered directly from the mains electricity, without the battery installed.

If your laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used away from the home or office, it is fine to leave the battery permanently installed. If, however, it is mainly used indoors at home or at work and always or almost always on exactly the same desk or table, then it makes little sense to use it either on battery power alone or with the battery permanently installed.

Charge the battery up to full charge and then disconnect the battery from the device and keep it safely for when you next need to use the laptop/notebook/netbook on the move (if the battery is stored for long periods it may require additional recharging to both maintain the battery's condition and to keep it fully charged because low level power dissipation takes place in a disconnected battery). Then connect the device to the mains electricity without the battery and continue using it like that.

If the laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used in a single permanent indoor location, then charging has to stop when the battery has reached 100% full charge and should only be resumed when the device gives a low battery charge warning.

It is also important not to let rechargeable batteries drain completely by ignoring the low battery charge warming and continuing to use the device until the battery runs out of charge and the device powers down suddenly. Sudden shutdowns like this are neither good for the battery nor the device and can shorten the lifespan of both.

Continuing to charge any rechargeable battery when it has already been fully charged damages and shortens the life of the battery. It can even damage the internal Power Management System of the device if done over a sustained period of time and/or for prolonged periods of time.

When your notebook only shows 75% as the maximum charging level, this is an indication that one or more (probably two) of the individual cells that make up the battery are fully depleted, damaged and probably no longer capable of storing a charge, for the reasons given above. You should stop charging this battery after it has reached 75%, otherwise more cells are likely to become damaged and so on until the entire battery is dead, unresponsive and useless.

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:

Two to three hours should fully charge your battery, to porlong battery life I would let the battery run as low as possible before recharging. Recharging half charged batteries causes the battery to age faster.

Battery does not charge


Will the old battery (that you are replacing) charge up at all? If the old battery charges but the new battery will not, then it's likely a bad replacement battery.

To rule out the possibility of a corrupted battery meter inside of windows, you may wish to leave the laptop on battery power only, until it dies. A 5% charge will usually only grant you about 20 minutes of laptop life maximum. Since you left it charging all night, you should get a few hours of life before it dies. If you get a few hours of life, the battery meter software is corrupted.

Most likely though, the replacement battery is bad.

You can try to completely discharge and recharge a few times to take it through its full cycle. However, you probably won't get much improvement. Batteries wear out with time and, after one year, I'd expect to see significant capacity loss on a machine such as this with typical usage patterns.
