How long will the battery in my portable computer last?

System batteries for portable computers are in general considered a consumable item. Because of that the battery warranty is normally limited to 1 year from the time of purchase.

The average life cycle of a battery is roughly 300 to 500 discharge recharge cycles, or about 18 months. The varies from system to system and battery types. Lithium Ion (LI) Batteries last longer than a Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) ones. The pattern of use also effects the lifespan of the battery.

As they age, the battery run time gets shorter and shorter as a normal progression of the battery life. So a 4 year old battery may run just fine, for 15 or 20 minutes. Failing batteries may also display LED indications on the system (On a Dell it will flash orange 4 times then green once)

Once a battery starts to degrade, it is time to buy a replacement. Some sources are:

My laptop overheating and screen turns off then shut down,also the battery dont last more than ten minutes

HP Pavillion has the tendency to get hot while in use, I don't think there is nothing wrong with it, You can buy one of those pads with fans if you want to, but that is not a guarantee that will increase the battery function time. You can do the following to replenish the battery and increase it's life...Without turning on your computer charge the battery until the green light comes on, then disconnect the charger and turn on your computer and let the computer on until the battery ran out of juice, ( During this period Do Not use your Computer). Then charge the lap top again without turning it on when the green light comes on, you can use the lap top. If this action does not increase the your battery use time, then it's time to buy another battery.
Good Luck

My laptop (HP pavillion dv6700 series) shut off yesterday and now won't turn on. Nothing comes on when you hit the power button, even when connected to the wall. It worked fine yesterday morning, left it...

Yes it may very well be. Your battery may be running out. Try this: drain your battery completely than take it out of your laptop. Now power on your unit and let your computer recognize that the battery is missing. Turn off your unit and put in your battery and power up. Let the battery charge go to your battery cofig and check on the status. When it is fully charged you should get from 8 to 16 hours of constant battery time. When you jump back and forth from battery plug in your power cord and back and forth you actually wear your battery out faster. Sometime the life of the battery is cut in half. I disable my battery from my computer while it is still attached so you don't have to take it out and just use it when I need it. This will keep more refreshed and will last a lot longer.

Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. It would be very kind of you if this does work for you to please rate me or leave a short note. I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
