Battery Life This may be a silly question, but I know how cell phones are...Should I unplug my laptop a lot and let the battery run down, as opposed to keeping it plugged in 95% of the time? I don't want to mess anything up, and this is my first laptop. Thanks!

I have some tips to keep your laptop battery live longer
1.don't undercharging and overcharging,laptops battery can reach 100 degress Fahrenheit and such heat can damage your battery. slowly but sure
2.ideally,you should try to keep your battery charged from 20 percent to 80 percent. i know it's inconvenient to unplug the charger before it reach 100 percent,but try to keep it charged near 80 percent
3.try to charge your battery constanly,and unplug it when you think its almost fully charged,overcharged can heat your battery and damage it
4.keep your laptop as cool as possible,don't try to charge the battery when the computer is turned on,even if the battery is going to 0 and you still need to use it,just shut down the laptop first and charge it,at least until the battery is charged 20%,unplug the charger and turn it on

Well,there are many other tips to keep your battery alive,but i only have those 4,thanks for using fixya
and good luck with the tree-planting project,i love environment very much

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

Cell phone batterys


when you get a new phone always turn it on and let it run out of battery power then plug in the charger and let it charge the battery until it is full before you unplug it, that is the best way to get best battery life out of the battery, as with most batterys

The fan on my satellite L645D-S4050 runs constantly and drains the battery very quickly. Battery life is about an hour as opposed to the advertised 4 hours. I have seen mention of installing and...


First Visit http://support.toshiba.com up top Click "Download" and search out your Toshiba Model Laptop. You could try a BIOS upgrade for it, it won't hurt anything, but I seriously doubt your fan is draining the battery that fast, even if it does run all the time. It's possible there is dust in there causing the fan to run all the time, or your power management settings need adjusting. Although the BIOS upgrade, if applicable, may help the fan, and should, frankly, be run anyway if available. I'd be seeking another battery to try, or maybe just buy a new one. If you get 4 hours you're good to go, from my experience laptop batteries die and just need replacing.

Battery will not hold a charge


Sadly phone batteries don't have the long life they used too. There isn't a lot you can do besides purchase a new battery. Samsung only covers the battery for one year from date of purchase, so you might be able to get a replacement if you have had it for less than a year. Otherwise, eBay is your friend. You can extend the life of the battery by changing some habits of how you use the device.
- Let the battery run completely down about (dead phone) about once a month. This helps ensure a longer life.
- Try to avoid using car chargers. The power provided isn't always the most stable and can greatly shorten the life of your battery.
Once you get a new battery, don't charge it right away. Let it run down the first time to empty before first time charge. That will ensure a long, healthy battery life.

I have a LG ku990i mobile phone. I have to charge the phone everyday. I only text and make phone calls. No more than 5 or 6 a day. All my previous phones would last 3 or 4 days at least. Why is this, is...


Smartphones run a lot of programs in the background that tend to use a lot of battery. Try installing ann app killer utility or battery saver utility. It works in the background to "kill" unused programs periodically which will dramatically save battery life. There may even be a utility like that already installed on your phone. If you want help find a utility, let me know. I have a droid and the app I use is advanced task killer but I do not know if it is compatible with your phone.

My cell phone doesnt stay charged for very long i


Hey
which model is your phone?
the battery life varies from model to model..
if you are using so many apps then the battery will naturally be short.
try reducing the brightness to 50%..gives battery a bigger life.
and if you have been using the battery for so long,may be its time to replace it.

and run a virus scan..usually many viruses bring down the battery life

Battery problem


Try upgrading the firmware on it. It depends mostly on what you are using on the device. If you do a lot of data-centric things like constant emailing, surfing the web, YouTube, etc. then you are going to use more battery. Applications running in the background also eat up battery life to keep active. Bluetooth uses more battery compared to using the phone itself. Lots of texting eats up battery life as well, both incoming and outgoing. Wi-Fi eats up battery like there is no tomorrow on just about any device. The TouchFlo 3D interface also uses more battery due to the graphics acceleration. You can turn off the TouchFlo interface to save battery power and go back to the regular Today screen. The device was tested for battery life with TouchFlo enabled however so that's more of an icing on the cake type of change for more power.

You may also want to try deep cycling the battery to see if that helps. Run the battery completely dead so it won't turn on the device anymore. The let it charge for 10-12 hours without the device on. That should cycle the battery and recalibrate the meter.

There are many diffferent reasons you could have lower battery life, it's always different for different people. HTC managed to keep the Touch Pro's battery life around the same as the Mogul even with the graphics acceleration and everything running. So simply turning off TouchFlo will probably increase total battery life by a bit.

you could upgrade to a higher MAH battery too.

LGxenon GR500 is the battery life short on this phone


Hi, it is not normal for a battery to run down as fast as that.

The battery's life you are using, there is a cell inside the battery that determines how the battery functions.

The battery cell might be too weak to carry the phone and you will need to replace battery.

When you get a new battery, make sure you charge battery for Six hours before.

Take care.
