Laptop Battery Charging Tips from the Pros
There’s a lot of talk these days about mobile phone batteries and charging, but laptop batteries are in a class all their own and deserve attention. Your laptop battery is one of its most important components – although we tend only to think of things like monitor size, or RAM and CPU power when we speak of laptops. Laptop batteries require special attention and care, and the lack of this is the reason why many laptop owners have to replace their batteries sooner than they’d like. We’ve provided some laptop battery charging tips and tricks for those of you who want to get the most out of your battery life.

Laptop Charging

Should I Leave My Laptop Plugged in All the Time?

This is a question that comes up a lot with laptop owners. And the answer is a quite simple “No.” For optimum battery use, and to get the most life out of your laptop battery, keeping it charged between 40% and 80% has been seen as optimum. However, the newer-generation lithium batteries do better in full charge cycles, so not letting it get below 40% is a good rule of thumb there. And, you don’t want to leave it charging all the time for another main reason – doing so can overheat the battery in some models, which is the number one thing you want to avoid. That said, in many laptop models, once the battery is 100% charged, it will cut off the power supply to the battery, so keeping it charging is redundant after that point, and won’t harm the battery in most cases.

Should I Completely Drain My Battery Before Re-Charging It?

This is another common question when it comes to laptop battery charging. The answer is (as you can guess from the above question) No as well. Most late-generation laptop batteries are either lithium-ion or lithium polymer, and as such, they are designed to be able to withstand many charge cycles. As stated above, keeping your laptop plugged in all the time won’t necessarily harm your battery, although laptop batteries do have a finite number of charge-discharge cycles, so allowing your battery to completely discharge will take away from its originally-intended lifespan.

How to care for your laptop’s battery and extend its life

Your laptop battery is either your single biggest complaint or favorite feature of your portable computer—there’s no in-between. Fortunately, even if you struggle with power problems, there are ways you can give your laptop battery some TLC.

Avoiding too-hot temperatures and updating your laptop are basics. But everything from adjusting your power settings to not dropping below a set discharge level helps conserve battery power—keep reading for a complete list of must-do battery savers.


All laptop batteries are built to handle a certain number of charge cycles, usually somewhere around 500 full cycles — and sometimes even more. Essentially, a charge cycle equals one full discharge down to zero percent and then a recharge back up to 100 percent. A discharge down to 50 percent and then back to 100 percent would equal half a cycle. Over time, each charge cycle decreases a battery’s capacity from its design specifications, meaning that the fewer times you drain it, the longer the battery last — all other things being equal.


And so, where do you start? You can begin by visiting the power settings corner of your laptop and learning how your battery works, and what battery settings to enable. Also, pay attention to hibernation modes. Ideally, you want your laptop to enter into hibernation before the battery is totally drained — as well as during downtime when you won’t be using the laptop for a while.(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">Dell Inspiron Mini 9 Battery


To save even more power, take a tour of your apps and quit any that are running in the background and steadily eating into your battery life. On Windows 10, for example, we suggest you search for and enable the Battery Saver. This mode will automatically turn on when your laptop reaches around 20% battery life (more down below on why this is particularly important). This will automatically block background apps, keep your features like Calendar from syncing or pushing notifications, lower screen brightness, and other various changes that will conserve your battery so you can get to an outlet ASAP.Akku Dell xps l501x


For MacBooks, look into enabling Power Nap so you can put your Mac to sleep without worrying about it skipping important tasks, allowing you to save more battery life. Enabling automatic graphics switching can also help Macs save energy by switching to a lower graphics mode when engaged in simple tasks (like text-based work where graphics aren’t as important).


There are plenty of manual changes you can make here, too. Cloud storage services or video players that you aren’t using can be safely shut down, too. You can also manually reduce the amount of power you’re using by shutting off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you’re not using them, turning off optional features such as keyboard back lighting, and generally reducing the number of components burning power. Both Microsoft and Apple have guides explaining the process further.(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">Dell Inspiron N5010 Battery


In ancient, less enlightened times, there was a problem called “battery memory” that caused nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries to “forget” their full charge capacity and start charging at lower and lower levels. This problem doesn’t exist any longer thanks to modern lithium-ion batteries, but it has led to a lot of poor advice and arguments about battery care based on outdated information. It’s time to clear the air.


Contrary to some recommendations, you don’t need to routinely completely discharge a lithium-ion battery and then recharge it to somehow reboot or calibrate it – this is a destructive practice that’s very hard on your battery. Whether or not it’s a smart idea to perform a complete discharge a couple of times a year remains an unanswered question. Generally, the consensus seems to be that letting your battery discharge (without bottoming it out — aim for around 20 percent) and then charge it when possible is the best practice.


Next, there was a time when users were advised to refrain from keeping their devices plugged in, based on the idea that letting a battery charge to 100 percent could wear the battery out more quickly. Today, however, modern devices are designed to stop charging at 100 percent and thus keeping them plugged in doesn’t impact the battery’s lifespan, according to Battery University.(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">Dell Latitude D820 Battery


As with many battery-related questions, the issue of keeping your laptop plugged in when it’s reached full capacity is hotly debated, and so there’s nothing wrong with turning your machine off and unplugging it. If you’re going to store your laptop for an extended time without using it, then discharge or charge it to 50 percent before putting it away. Akku Dell Studio 1737

Top tips for extending the battery life of your laptop

(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)>


 


Modern laptops are more powerful than ever before, and thanks to advancements in mobile technology, they are also more efficient as well, giving them ever greater battery lives.


However, they still need to be plugged in a juiced up throughout the day. While laptop battery life is a chief cause of mobile moans, it's possible to get significant improvements by good practice and a few software tweaks. To help you get a longer laptop battery life, here are 10 easy ways to improve it.


1. Dim your screen

The screen is one of the most power-hungry parts of the laptop. It takes serious amounts of battery power to keep your display looking clear and bright. Saving this power is simply a question of turning the brightness down.


The screen brightness button is usually located as a second function of one of the F keys, and is represented by a little sun symbol with up and down icons. To use it, just hold down the correct function key and then choose up or down.


2. Change power settings

Windows 10 comes with some great power features, which enable you to eke out the best performance when you're plugged into the mains, and optimise battery life when on the move.


Type 'power options' into the Start Search box and choose 'Power saver' from the list. Windows 10 also has more methods for saving battery life. These include settings for powering off the monitor and kicking into sleep mode more quickly.Laptop Akku Dell XPS m1730


3. Switch off Wi-Fi

One of the biggest battery sappers is the wireless networking capabilities built into most laptops. Wi-Fi drains the battery by constantly drawing power from the battery and, when not connected, looking for networks.


When you're using your laptop away from the grid, the likelihood is you're away from wireless networks, so you can turn this device off. Many laptops have a function button that enables you to turn off the wireless adaptor manually to save yourself the unnecessary waste, but older laptops often don't have this.


If this is the case, open up the Notification Center by clicking the speech bubble icon on the far-right side of the taskbar, and click on 'Wi-Fi' to turn it off.


4. Turn off peripherals

Using USB peripherals can put a drain on your system, because your motherboard has to power them, so unplugging everything saves juice. USB sticks, mice and webcams are common offenders, so copy all your information across and eject your devices as soon as possible, and put up with laptop track pads over your USB mouse.


Many laptops have function buttons to turn off the built-in webcam, which drains the battery if given the chance. And switch your speakers to mute if you've no need for sound - your laptop beeping every time it gets an email or boots Windows can be a drain.


5. Eject your disc drives

Having a disc spinning in the drive is a huge drain on resources, and many programs constantly do this. Simply eject your discs before you switch to battery power to gain vital extra minutes from your working day.


Most modern laptops don't come with disc drives installed these days, but if yours does, it's worth making sure it's empty when you're on the move.


6. Invest in some hardware

Good practice can go some way to extending your battery life, but if you need to use your laptop throughout your working day, you're going to need some help. (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">DELL Alienware M17x Battery


Most laptops come with a six-cell battery, but many manufacturers offer eight- or even 12-cell optional upgrades, which can double your power.


The alternative to expensive laptop batteries are portable laptop battery chargers, which give you valuable extra hours for all your devices. These are usually compact battery units that have adapters for most laptops and mobile phones, which is portable enough to be placed in a bag and has enough capacity to double the length of your charge.Laptop Akku Dell XPS m1350


Check out our list of the best portable laptop battery chargers and power banks for our pick of the best devices to keep your laptop charged.


7. Disable features

Windows 10 has some handy built-in features, but many put demands on your system that are unnecessary when working on the move. Take the simple measure of turning off graphical effects when you're on the move to make your laptop more efficient.(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">Dell Latitude D620 Battery


8. Battery care

Lithium-Ion batteries don't need a complete discharge (contrary to popular belief) but also you should use a battery once you've charged it.


If you have a spare you keep topped up, use that instead of your main regularly. If you have an older non-Lithium-Ion battery, you'll need to regularly discharge it.(cliquez ici pour suivre le lien)">Dell Studio 1537 Battery

How long should a laptop battery last?
How long a laptop battery should last after each charge?
Laptop battery
After the laptop has gone through a full single charge and the power adapter is unplugged, the average life of a laptop battery can be anywhere between one and six hours. This time is dependent on the battery, its capacity (mAH), what's being done on the laptop, and how old the battery is. Over time, the laptop battery's capacity decreases, which means the battery will not last as long as it did when you first got the laptop and will continue to decrease over time.

The more software programs that are open and running on your laptop, the less time you get from the battery. When more programs are open, it requires more power for the laptop to keep the programs running. Other factors that affect the battery life include the brightness of the screen, an active WiFi connection for Internet service, and if you are consuming media. Each of these will also reduce battery life. (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) Dell Precision m6700 Battery

What's the overall life of a laptop battery?
A laptop computer battery should last between two and four years, or around 1,000 full charges. The total lifetime of a battery is dependent on several factors. These factors include battery type (NiCad, NiMH, or Li-ion), how often the battery is used, and its age. (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) Akku HP Elitebook 6930p

A battery is a hardware component that supplies power to a device, enabling that device to work without a power cord. Batteries are often capable of powering a laptop computer for several hours depending on how much power it requires. Today, many high-end devices such as computer laptops and cell phones use rechargeable batteries that allow a user to recharge the battery once depleted of energy. The picture below is an example of a removed laptop battery with a close-up of the battery rating.

Computer (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) batteries
There are three computer batteries types used with computers. First, is the backup battery, which is commonly referred to as the CMOS battery that holds your computer's settings, such as the time and date. Without a CMOS battery you would have to reset the time, date, and other system settings each time the computer starts.

Next, the bridge battery is only found in portable computers as a temporary backup for the main battery. A bridge battery allows you to remove the main battery and replace it with a good battery without having to turn off the computer. (cliquez ici pour suivre le lien) Akku HP Elitebook 8440w

Finally, the main battery in portable computers is an alternate source of energy for when the computer is not connected to a wall outlet.
