You’ve probably heard some people say you should drain your laptop battery completely before charging it, or that you should keep it between 40% and 80% all the time to make it last longer or to keep it in good health
My recent HD games installation has made me question the strength of my Laptop Battery. leaving me wishing it could last just a little longer than it does at the moment when I am playing PC games.
Why does it run down so fast?
There is little you can do because each computer application has a certain percentage of power that is expected to run on for efficiency. Most of these rules are outdated, applying to older nickel-based batteries. Luckily, most or all of your gadgets these days run on Lithium-Ion batteries, which are easy to take care of.
I recommend reading the manufacturers full guide on how the battery works, but the gist is: they last longer when you perform shallow discharges, keep them cool, and don’t leave them plugged in while they’re running at 100%. Honestly, though, batteries have a finite life no matter what, and your efforts will only go so far—so don’t stress about it.
Focus your efforts on getting better battery life out of your iPhone, Android phone, or laptop on a given charge instead—and knowing how to replace the battery when it starts dying.
