Know When Your Laptop Battery Needs to Be Replaced
Common signs that it’s time to replace your laptop battery include: A fully charged battery dies in just a short amount of time. Your laptop shuts down even when the battery shows a full charge. Your laptop won’t turn on even when the power cord is plugged in. If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, your laptop battery most likely needs to be replaced. While there are a few things you can do to extend the life of your battery, in most instances, laptop batteries will need to be replaced after a couple years of use.
Tips To Extend Your Battery Life
Unplug the charger or remove the battery when not charging. Keep device and battery in a cool dry place (heat destroys a battery). Disable unnecessary programs that draw energy from your computer. Shut down or use hibernate mode to minimize battery drain.
