Laptop rechargeable battery appeared with the development of laptop, which is one of the advantages that laptop have when compared to desktops. Due to the available in all kinds of situation, the laptop battery replacement is also called as solid stand-by player, especially for office clerks under the situation of electric tripping. The first kind of laptop battery was Nickel-cadmium batteries (NI-CD) with ‘memory effect’, which need to be discharged electricity, making the operation inconvenient. Later on, it was replaced by Nickel-Metal Hydride battery (NI-MH) without the ‘memory effect’, which can also provide 10% more electric power per unit.
So far, laptop batteries can be divided into three kinds mainly: the NI-CD battery, NI-CD battery and LI battery.
When buying or exchanging the laptop battery, most users may be unfamiliar with ‘battery cells’. First of all, we have to be clear that batter cells differ from battery. A battery was composed of several units as large as a thumb, in 7 to 8cm height and 3.6v voltages, of which the famous manufacturer is SANYO and SAMSUNG. Battery cell, actually, can be regarded as little batteries, composing the battery by series combination.
Tips on Judging Battery Cell:
A simple one is to take apart the battery to see how many contacts does it have, the number of the contacts refers to the number of the battery cells. Another one is more complicated: check the voltage of your battery, for instance, it’s 14.4v, which divided by 3.6 is 4, then 4 is the number of batteries that connected in series. As far as the capacity of the battery is concerned, for example, 4400 mAh, which means that there are two series connected battery packs, for the capacity of these battery cells is from 2000-2200 mAh or more, by connected together to 4400 mAh. According to the above two judgments, the battery consist of 4 x 2 =8 battery cells.
Tips on Better Using Laptop Computers:
1. Instant access to sleeping status
The easiest way to access to sleeping status instantly is to turn off the monitor directly, which can effectively save the power of the battery.
2. Electric saving mode
TFT monitor is the component that cost the most electricity, hence, by setting the brightness of the monitor would do favor to saving electricity for the battery.
3. Energy-saving Setting
Most new laptops are equipped with energy-saving mode, which would help in saving the energy of the battery, hence to prolonging the life-span of the batteries.
4. Running out the power.
Running out the power of the battery periodically guarantees the fully charging of the battery. The steps would be: select the three items in ‘Battery Drain’ as ‘Never’ in Power Management, only in this case can the battery be run out. Select the mode and get access to ‘Alarms’, then cancel the warning in ‘Low battery’ and ‘Critical Battery’
5. The first activation of laptop batteries
Most laptop manufacturers were claimed that new laptops should be recharged and discharged totally for three times under the situation of fully discharged and the charging time would be better in 14 hours.
Actually, most laptop manufacturers would activate the batteries before shipment, with only a little power for avoiding the effect of the battery. However, laptop batteries would stop charging after once fully charging, there’s no need to charge for up to 12 hours. Generally speaking, the new laptop can be only activated as usual.
