Advice 2: As a first time charge your laptop
Batteries - an indispensable thing in electronics. Standard of quality and ubiquity of usage in laptops today is the lithium-ion battery (Li-Ion). They have big volume and light weight. The disadvantages of this battery type are high cost and a relatively small temperature range for operation. To the battery lasts longer, you need right the first time charge the laptop.

- - laptop computer;
- - notebook PC user manual.
Make sure that your notebook contains a lithium ion battery. This feature look in the manual or on the box of the computer. The manufacturer designates the type of combination of letters battery Li-Ion.
A new laptop usually has an uncharged battery or partially charged. Li-Ion system has no "memory effect" inherent in the devices of the earlier production. Also this action is not subject to the batteries next generation lithium polymer (Li-Poly). But in order not to bring down the system, you need first time charge the laptop.
Not including the computer, connect it to the charger and let it charge the first time overnight. So you are guaranteed to receive the maximum charged battery. If you do not resist and turned on the laptop after 10-20 minutes the first charging battery icon can show 100% commitment. Turn off the computer, remove the battery, wait a few seconds. Insert the battery into place. Connect the laptop to the charger. When charging the battery may become hot.
To battery new laptop has reached its maximum capacity, it is necessary "to train". After a night of charging, disconnect the power supply from the network and work offline until the battery is fully discharged. At night, again connect the computer to the network. Perform data manipulation several times (3-5) to develop the battery.
Keep in mind that the new battery charges and discharges faster. Real time computer work in offline mode in the beginning may not conform to the characteristics specified by the manufacturer. Do not hurry to run to the store after a few full charges the battery can easily withstand the specified time.
To extend the life of the battery, not discharge it to 0, and to achieve 20% of the total charge.
Is the advice useful?
To extend battery life, use the function "energy saving".
Pay attention to some nuances. If you don't use the battery for more than two weeks, it can fail. It is connected with process of loss of capacity in the battery. So the rule is "prophylactic" charging batteries of the laptop.
If you're on a laptop often and continuously, get two batteries. Until one goes down, the second is charge that will allow you not to worry due to the fact that the battery is discharged inappropriately, and replace it with nothing. In this case, you will definitely need the wall charger.
