A battery is one of the most important components of your laptop. It supplies power to the device and basically keeps it running. Depending on how your laptop is handled, your battery may either die too quickly or hang on for years.
There is a lot you can do to maintain the health of your battery. These are the three major things you must consider.
1. Charging and discharging
You should not leave your laptop plugged into electricity for a whole day or even several days at a time. This shortens the lifespan. Some experts advise that if you want to keep charging your laptop, remove the battery. Or once it's been fully charged, unplug it.
Other charging tips include leaving it at between 40% to 80 % most times. Unless you are charging it for the first time, in which case it must charge to 100%. Also, you should charge it before the battery drops below 20%.
2. Electric voltage
If you experience unstable voltage, be sure to solve this particular issue or it can damage your battery. Also, try not to charge your laptop in an outlet where other powerful appliances are connected.
For a longer battery life, use your laptop at room temperature. Avoid placing it on your legs, blanket, or anywhere that could cause the device to heat up. Place your laptop in a clean space to avoid dirt or dust clogging the air vents.
There will come a time when you need to replace your batteries, but in this economy, you can use these tips to push the time as further back as possible.
