The Maintenance of Laptop Batteries

By: Vgevge
The life of a laptop fully depends upon the battery life. It is recommended that everyone condition their laptop battery before using it. All new batteries should go through 8-20 cycles in order to be conditioned. One cycle is a full charge and discharge. It is very important to make sure that you have conditioned the laptop battery. If you do not condition your laptop battery, it will be difficult for you to get the optimum runtime out of your battery life. It should last for a number of hours.

When you buy a new laptop, it normally comes with a fully discharged and completely unconditioned laptop battery. It is suggested that the laptop not be turned on right away, because the battery may not have enough power for it to work. Once you charge the battery, you should let it discharge completely before you charge it again. A normal batter will take 8-10 charge and discharge routines before it reaches its full capacity. At this point, the battery will have a nice long lifetime. You will receive a higher quality performance of your laptop battery if you do this.

If you do not keep your laptop battery conditioned, you may not receive accurate information regarding the charge of your battery. Your computer may display inaccurate information, so make sure that you fully condition the battery for better performance.

In some cases, people believe that their battery needs to be replaced due to the inaccurate display of the amount of battery power remaining. This is because the power seemed to run out more quickly than it should have. Sometimes at the beginning, the display will show that the battery is fully charged even though there is a low charge. In this case take the battery out, and put it back in. Then charge the battery. You should then see an accurate display of a fully charged battery when the battery is actually fully charged.

If you are looking for a recycling program to give your old laptop battery to, you can simply go to an electronic store that offers a nice deal on recycling batteries. It was not always easy to collect electronic items and get them to the appropriate recycling facility. Today, there are various stores that handle the recycling and collection of various computer components and other electronics. They will take these items to the appropriate recycling facility.

Whenever you decide to recycle you laptop battery, please check the with the manufacturer of the battery and find out if they take back the batteries when they need to be recycled.

The life of every laptop is dependent upon the performance of its battery. Laptop batteries will only perform well when they are well maintained and conditioned. Recycling is also better than throwing them away. Consider the importance of these things and handle your laptop batteries well.
