Try avoiding charging them as much as you can, but don't let them go flat.
Keep them in a cool dry place.

If you are not using a device, take the batteries out of it.

Avoid unnecessary use.

Hope that i helped you.

Battery Charge at high temperatures and low

a-collection-of-photoshop-business-card-tutorials-and-free-psd-files-300x156.jpg Nickel-metal-hydride is less forgiving than nickel-cadmium, if applied in high and low temperatures. Nickel-metal hydride may not be quick to load below 10 â° C (45 â° F) and can not be slow to load below 0 â° C (32 â° F). Some industrial chargers are designed to adjust the rate to the current temperatures. price sensitivity does not allow the processing temperature sensing charger consumers.
At higher temperatures, the charge acceptance of nickel-based BTP-58A1 batteries is drastically reduced. A HP 530 battery that provides up to 100% when applied at moderate temperature can only accept 70% if charged at 45 â° C (113 â° F) and 45% if charged at 60 â° C (140 â° F). This demonstrates the poor performance of some summer car charger.
Lead-acid is fairly tolerant to extreme temperatures, as we are familiar with our car batteries. Part of this tolerance is accredited to the slowness of the system lead-acid. Some brands Inspiron Mini 9 (all 8.9 series) battery can freeze and low loads, while others say the damage and provide reduced service and a short life.
To improve the performance of lead-acid battery to colder temperatures and avoid thermal runaway during periods of heat, the control voltage limit, at which the INSPIRON 9300 battery is charged, is important. Implementation of this measure can extend the battery life of up to 15%. General guidelines suggest a compensation of approximately 3 mV per cell per degree Celsius. The voltage regulation has a negative coefficient, meaning that the threshold voltage decreases with increasing temperature.
Heat kills DV2000 battery. The hotter the cells, the shorter the life. High temperatures can not always be avoided, especially during fast charging, but efforts must be made to keep this short time. While 45 â° C (113 â° F) is acceptable if kept short, at 50 â° C (122 â° F) and above, the battery starts to suffer. Note that the cells inside the packaging are always a few degrees warmer than the temperature of the body.

How to improve battery life of Dell Inspiron 15R N5010 battery?

never leave your laptop on until the battery is out of charge
optimally, you can remove your battery after it's fully charged and keep your charger connected until needed.

Eventually your battery will have a short/no life indeed. Though this happens to all laptops.
Using your laptop while it is charging isn't going to damage anything. It just means that the battery will take longer to charge because you're using the laptop.
To get the most life out of the battery, fully charge it and then use it until it is empty. It's also a good idea to remove the battery when the laptop is connected to the mains supply.
All you're trying to do is extend the life of the battery. The day will come when it holds a short/no charge.

Short battery life

$orry, theres no fix to this, after a while batterys begin to die and the life becomes shorter. this could be due to leaving it on charge all day and night and not letting it frequently loose and gain charge again. even my laptop battery has began to lose its battery length - but ive had my battery for a long time. purchase a new battery and try to keep from leaving the A/C adapter in over night. you should notice alot longer battery length after that. rate me :)
