First Time Charging

  • The amount of time it takes for your battery to fully charge depends on many factors, like your battery type and operating system. Many newer laptops will charge in 15 to 20 minutes, while others can take a few hours.

    When you're charging your battery for the first time, charge it fully before using your laptop. You may have to go through a battery cycle a couple times before your battery begins performing at its maximum capability. To do this, charge your battery fully, let it discharge to about five percent, and then fully charge it again

    Charge time differs from computer to computer. Some new laptops may charge in 15-20 minutes and some take a couple of hours. if its the first time leave it plugged in for a few hours and next time pay attention to how long it takes, the windows battery meter will tell you what percent of the battery is charged. hope this helps

    SOURCE: My Aspire 3680 Laptop will not charge the battery.

    Although both could be the culprit, it is far more likely that the battery has gone dead.

    New battery won't charge

    There is a chance that the charger is broken. Some batteries need to be jump started (charge it for some hours), especially an old battery (the brand new battery but it does not hold charge for a long time)

    Hi there i just bought ASUS,X42 series laptop but it seems the battery can only last for an hour.please i want it to last longer,how many hours should charge cos it a new o laptop i just bought..thanks

    The battery should be charged overnight ie for approx. 10 hours.
    When the battery runs down then charge it up again until it is fully charged, you may need to do this several times until the battery reached it normal capacity.

    I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.

    The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

    Brand new battery will not charge

    If the battery has never been used but stored dead for a long time, a first time charge will take some time. If the laptop doesn't receive some voltage from the battery, it will not know it's there and will take a long time to start chargeing from the trickle of charge it receives when totally flat. Use your laptop with the AC adaptor and if after 24 hours it has not started to charge, return it for a replacement.
    Hope that helps.

    How many hours to charge a new acer 4738?, mine is too long to charge, is it natural if new?

    A brand new battery has to be charged for 8 hours.For any battery related issue, a reset or calibration can be done.Just drain all the charge in the battery by using the laptop only on battery power( ie,with the Charger/Adaptor disconnected).After the comp shuts down due to no power,then charge the battery for 8-10 hours and then check if its fully getting charged or not
    At times a BIOS update can fix battery related issues.

    How long does it take to charge the battery to a full charge...thanks,judy....on a presario V2000

    usually 8 hours is what is suggested when you get a new battery. i like to burn down the power on the battery completely till it turns the unit off, then let charge for 24 hours just to reset the battery correctly.

    Battery back up is limited to 1 hour only

    Did you do a full cycle charge when you got the Laptop? When you buy the Laptop you have to use the computer on battery till the battery dies and then charge battery for 12 hours and you repeat that another time. Most likely your battery it is damaged. Maybe you call the company and they might replace it for you.
