Tips for extending battery life on laptops.
Never leave the battery go to 0%. keep a low limit threshhold at about 10%. When it reaches at 15-10% charge it.
Do not overheat the battery by any way. If in any case the battery is overheated, close the laptop and remove the battery to cool down. Also if you are charging the laptop and it’s overheating then you definately have a problem. Take the laptop to an IT expert.
After the laptop is charged, leave for 15mins to cool and then open the laptop for use
The battery has charge cycles like all batteries
It is importand to make a full charge. Leaving the charger for 20mins, then remove it, then again it is bad.
Even half charged is considered a full cycle. Battery life is signifaly reduced from that practise
Always remeber the 10% rule. Do not charge your laptop when at 50% or more, there is no point of doing that. You will reduce in time the capacity / effeciency of the battery.
Do not leave the battery uncharged for a long period of time. If you want to store the battery, charge at 30%, then remove from the laptop
If you tend to store the battery for more that 6 months, keep in mind that you will have to put the battery back on, take it to 5%, then charge again at 30%. Repeat this every 6 months
