How to Increase the Life of Your Laptop Battery

Laptop is a very convenient way of using computer and the good thing about this is that whenever there is no electricity supply like in bus or car or even in a ground you can use this. But for this battery is required and this is already attached with the laptop when it is bought. But there is a problem with the laptop battery that it gradually loses its backup time as it gets older. There are number of reasons which could decrease the backup time of battery.

I am an IT engineer and I would like to share some tips with you. If you follow them you will definitely able to increase the life and back up time of your laptop battery.

• Generally the batteries are made for getting fully discharged and charged. So use your laptop in a way that battery gets discharged if you use this on battery power and then charge the battery. Means simply you need to follow the battery charging discharging cycle and minimum number of cycles in a maximum time would increase the battery life.
• If you use your laptop on direct power supply and there is no power cut or alteration where you use your laptop, you must remove your battery and then use the laptop.
• If you use your laptop mostly on power supply but there are power cuts during the usage of laptop, do not de-attach your battery, and rather keep the charging level on 40%. This is ideal for battery life. But if you charge this, charge this full and then let it discharged, before getting charged again. There are some provisions in battery monitor software installed on your laptop, where you can disable charging battery.
• Do not let the battery discharged fully ever. If ever it is discharged, charge this at least up to 40% of charging level.

All the above tips seem to be cumbersome process for you, but they will not if you understand them and follow them. They will increase the throughput and lifetime of your battery.
