There has been of great deal of ink spilled on the subject of prolonging your laptop's battery life, but what about caring for your battery? Over time, the capacity of any rechargeable battery diminishes, to the point at which it is no longer useful. However, with proper care, batteries can last a long time. Read this guide to make sure you get your money's worth out of your laptop's battery(Sony Vaio VGN-FZ battery).


Most laptop batteries these days are lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are substantially better than either of their precursors, nickel cadmium (NiCad) and nickel metal hydride (NiMAH) batteries, in that they do not suffer from the "memory effect". This means that, contrary to popular belief, you do not need to let your battery run down all the way. In fact, it's better that you don't. Having said that though, I need to add that lithium-ion battery (Sony VGP-BPS8 battery)users should allow their batteries to fully discharge on the first two or three charging cycles. Beyond that, though, computers with lithium-ion batteries should be plugged in whenever they're not in use. 

However, it is not good to leave your laptop constantly plugged in. Many people use their laptops largely as desktop replacements, using them on the desk and leaving them plugged in most of the time. These people would do well not what their laptop batteries charge constantly. Although there's no danger of "overcharging" lithium-ion batteries, leaving a laptop plugged in for months at a time will have a detrimental effect on its battery(Sony VGP-BPL9 battery). If you use your laptop as a desktop replacement, try unplugging it when it's not in use. Take care to unplug the charger from the wall, too, as otherwise it consumes electricity. Better yet, leave the laptop plugged in all the time, but remove its battery. For long-term storage, lithium-ion batteries should be allowed to run down to little below half charge. Store them safely in a warm, dry location.

Laptop batteries die all the time, and are very expensive. You want to get as much life as possible out of your laptop battery(Sony vgn-fz4000 battery) before you have to buy a new one. Laptop batteries can sometimes run over $100 and if you have an older laptop, it may exceed the actual cost of your laptop to replace the battery. Here are the ten best ways to keep your laptop battery running for the longest possible time, so you don't have to buy a new one.

1. Don't keep the battery charging all the time, take it out when its not in use. The heat from your computer will destroy your battery slowly over time. Lithium Ion batteries don't like heat, so don't expose them to excess heat(ACER Travelmate 2300 Battery).

2.Don't put your laptop on your lap or on your bed with the battery in it. Again, this is another heat issue, and the heat from putting your laptop on your lap or on your bed will also damage the components of your laptop not just ruin your battery.

3.Store your battery at a 40 percent charge, in a cool place. The fridge in a zip lock bag is the best place to store it(ACER Aspire 3020 Battery).

4.Set your energy savings to the best battery life possible, turn off sound, dim the screen. Keep CDs out of the optical drive if your not using them. All of these things slowly drain the life out of your battery.

5.Keep the battery out of the sun, or your car. Again, heat is the number one killer here(ACER Aspire 3000 Battery).

6.Don't charge your battery unless you absolutely have to. This means don't charge it just to charge it, don't run it down to nothing either. Just remember that your battery only has a certain amount of charges in it, usually around 500. Keep that in mind at all times (ASUS A3000 Battery battery).

7.Every so often, discharge the battery fully and charge it up fully without interruption. These are not nickel cadmium batteries which lose their memory, but do need conditioning every so often (ASUS Eee PC 900 Battery).

8.If your battery dies, throw it in the freezer for 24 hours and then charge it fully, and discharge it 3-4 times. This may bring your battery back to life. Only do this is the battery is completely dead (SONY VGP-BPS9 Battery).

9.Remember that watching video, and other resource hogs on your computer suck your battery of life, add as much ram as possible to decrease the strain on your CPU (Dell Inspiron 6000 battery).

10.Don't ever try to shock your battery back to life, Lithium Ion batteries are dangerous and could explode and catch fire. Some batteries are dead for good when the die, recycle them properly (Dell Inspiron 6400 battery).
