Batteries are a key component of mobile devices, our mobile phones, tablet and laptop batteries are inseparable. Although electronic technology in the rapid development, but development of battery technology is relatively slow. Even more unfortunately, many users are still incorrect use and maintenance of batteries. A lot about battery use and maintenance of the argument are derived from past battery technology, these techniques when applied on top of new technology batteries will cause damage to the battery. For example, nickel-based battery needs to be fully discharged, and the new battery should not be completely discharged.
Shallow discharge, avoid frequent full discharges
Past NiMH batteries and nickel-cadmium batteries have a “memory effect”, the need to fully discharge fully its storage capacity to maintain. Basic use of new electronic equipment lithium batteries have no memory effect. In fact, the fully discharged battery is harmful. You should try to be shallow discharge – for example, the power down to 40-70% of recharge. Unless forced to, try not to let your battery is below 20%.
If the new battery discharge to 50% charge, and then discharge to 50%, which will be counted as a single “cycle.” You need not worry about shallow discharges.
Of course, shallow discharge will bring about a problem, the error estimate laptop battery life. Laptop manufacturers generally recommend that users perform a full discharge of a month to help calibrate the battery has an estimated life time.
High temperature (cold) harmful to the battery
Temperature can reduce the battery capacity, this factor will affect all types of devices – even smart phone running the program will lead to warming because – Laptop perform load task will become very hot. Laptop batteries are generally closer distance electronic components, to perform a large number of tasks, components overheating also cause battery damage.
If your laptop is often a long boot, the machine temperature is higher, it is recommended to remove the battery to avoid battery is subjected to high temperature erosion, thereby increasing battery life. If the laptop is only used for ordinary work, you will not have much difference, but if the user used to play the big game, cause the temperature is too high, then remove the battery will help extend battery life. Of course, this applies only to removable battery laptop.
User belongs to local climate is also a problem. If you live in a very hot place, or your store the device in a warmer place – for example, under the hot sun in summer in a car – the loss of your battery faster. So, try to keep your equipment is placed near room temperature, avoiding in a hot place.
Extreme cold temperatures may also reduce your battery life. Do not put the backup battery in the freezer, if you live in extremely cold areas, they should not be placed in a device equipped with a battery low temperature environment.
Avoid placing the battery is fully discharged
Long should the battery remains fully discharged state. Ideally, you do not often discharge the battery to zero – if you do, you should be charged as soon as possible. If your smart phone battery runs out, do not panic charge, just do not be thrown into a drawer, a few weeks without charging. If you fully discharge the battery and long indifferent, the battery will lose the ability to store charge, eventually completely damaged.
Five into electricity stored more scientific
On the other hand, the battery is fully charged, then idle for a long period of time may also lead to reduced storage capacity and shorten its life. Ideally, if you do not intend to use the equipment near future, please re-store the device battery remaining Yu Wucheng more scientific. Apple recommends that users if more than six months without the use of electronic equipment, it is best to electricity is 50% for storage. If you often use the device, you do not need to worry about their status, you should not want the battery for a long time to zero it.
Battery fully discharge and then stored, may cause the battery completely damaged, while the battery is fully charged and then stored, it may cause the battery storage capacity is reduced, shortening battery life.
This technique applies to devices around the battery and battery backup – if the next period of time, do not use the device, keep 50% of the electricity.
Full-time boot laptop is possible ……
But the issue is controversial. We have already introduced full-time boot if the right questions. If the battery temperature is not considered, we believe that the notebook computer power is normal-time. In response, Apple dissenting not recommended Macbook Air and Macbook Pro Notebook full-time power.
In fact, the things said here are the same. When you are using the computer, keep the battery in place practices without error, because the battery will not “overcharge” – because the power to reach the peak, the device will stop charging the battery. However, as you should not be charged laptop battery in the closet, if you leave it on a laptop a few months, you should remove the fully charged battery. Before charging, and occasionally have to make the appropriate discharge – this will keep the flow of electrons, and to prevent battery loss of storage capacity.
Battery University reminder: “The worst case is fully charged battery in high temperature environment.” If your laptop generates a lot of heat, remove the batteries may be a good idea. If you have a pretty cool laptop, occasionally for proper discharge, even a few days without power off no problem communicating. If your laptop gets very hot, you might consider removing the battery, as described earlier.
Battery will eventually wear and tear
Like all other types of batteries, lithium batteries will eventually over time gradually wear down the battery storage capacity increasingly weak. Apple, Apple laptop battery in the “1000” a complete discharge cycles, the battery will be only 80% of the new electricity. Other manufacturers are generally nominal 300-500 cycles.
This loss point of arrival, the battery can still be used, but it will reduce the storage capacity, equipment life will be shortened. The more frequent charging and discharging the battery loss will be more serious. High temperature and aging will shorten battery life.
No matter what you do, as time goes on, your battery will slowly loss. Proper use and maintenance will keep the battery in good condition and prolong life. I hope on your device before upgrading the battery could have been a good performance.
