Hi,
For acer 9410 you have 2 options for battery. an 8 cell battery which normally would last for 3.5 hrs. or a 6 cell battery that lasts for 2 hours. but that would depend on the application that you are using. for example, the battery will last longer if .you are just using it for email or chat compared to watching video. Why is that? its because watching video and playing games requires heavy processing thus consuming more battery. we should also remember that rechargeabu le batteries are consumable parts. it runs out in time. it is normal for it to degrade after a year. if it has'nt been a year since you purchased this computer then call acer and ask for a replacement battery. hope this helps?
thanks.

Hi my battery only lasts up to an hour, how do i

Well it should last between 3-4 hours if new. <br /><br />Batteries need conditioned . You fully charge them and then run them fully down. 1 hour seems pretty short. As a rule, don't run them on battery while plugged into power.<br /><br />I have no better solution than this.<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->

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.

My hp 530 laptop has suddenly stopped powering up in the last 24 hours. When plugged in and even when not plugged in an amber light flashes approx 5 times in the front of the laptop when the power button...

The problem could be with the battery. Try plugging the laptop in with the battery removed and see if it boots. If it does, then the problem is most likely a dead battery; but before you go out and buy a new one, leave the battery out of the laptop for about 24 hours and let it drain its battery, and then give it one last try. If it still doesn't boot, then its possibly the motherboard and the laptop needs to be replaced. Best of luck!

I purchased an acer aspire one with qvc last year in dec the

Hello, Adonis.

Depending on its use, a battery lasting 2.5 hours after one year is not terrible. Over time, the battery loses power.

If the battery were totally dead in less that one year, I'd suggest contacting Acer, since it's still under warranty.

Hope this helps.

Battery time doesnt last long

Generally laptop batteries (Lithium-Ion) come in standard 6-cell and 12-cell configurations, lasting about 1.5 to 2 years before they begin to degrade in their charge capacity.

HP has issued 3 recalls in the last two years regarding laptop batteries, and you can check to see if your laptop qualifies for their replacement program under the recall at: http://bpr.hpordercenter.com/hbpr/

You can also shop Nextag for laptop batteries that are compatible with the dv600z, here are some search results: http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&q=laptop+battery+for+hp+dv6000z&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=EqgtSuvxF4_SNOvR7PcJ&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

Lastly, if you purchased the laptop at Best Buy for instance, and you purchased the GSBTP (geek squad black tie protection) which is just their in-store warranty, they all come with a free battery replacement for the term of the warranty.

Hope this helps,
Joshua

Battery replacement

What is it excactly you want out of your battery, three hours is outstandind battery time. Most last little more than half that. You're not going to find any that will last much if any longer, especially from an after market manufacturer.
