Battery life in Wireless Mouse

Question: Battery life in Wireless Mouse

I purchased a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse in December 2005, began to use it then with new Duracell batteries in the mouse.Although I'm not a heavy user my mouse froze on screen today and when I checked I discovered the batteries were dead. It's not as if I use the mouse for extended periods and I expected the batteries to run for at least until the end of the year. I've had things like clocks where the batteries seem to last for ever.Anyone got any opinions?

I got me a Targus Wireless Optical Mini Mouse with Charger


This mouse as a recharging dock so I can recharge the 2x AA Batteries in side.

Any one have any ideas on how many hours use I can get from a mouse before needing to recharge ?

Answer:Battery Life on Wireless Optical Mouse

No but I know a way of testing it! Take the mouse fully charged to a supermarket. Place the mouse on the conveyor-belt but comtinue to hold it so it doesn't move, but the conveyor does. Then just patiently tell other customers to use the next line......cause well.....you're busy. The conveyor will act as your movement.....
Time it until it runs outs. It'll only be a couple days.... :amazed:

:edit:
Awesome mouse BTW!!!

I purchased a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 about 9 months ago. The batteries initially lasted about 6 months. I replaced them with newly purchased batterries and they lasted about a week. It now seems that I have to replace the batteries weekly and the mouse then works fine for about another week. I even went as far as buying new and fairly expensive Energizer Lithium batteries (non-rechargable) thinking that maybe they would last longer and, again, they lasted one week. Any idea why the life of the batteries went from 6 months to one week?
 

Answer:Microsoft Mouse Battery Life

Some wireless mice use a lot more juice when sitting on dark or reflective surfaces. Make sure your using a standard style mouse pad that doesn't have a lot of dark colors in it. Otherwise you may have an issue with the mouse itself. The battery should last about 6 months. I have the 3000 series mouse and my battery last about 4 months but I am a heavy PC user.

I have a Logitech Cordless Mouse/Keyboard combo. I've had it for a couple of months now, I like it, but it seems that every couple of weeks I start to get constant pop-ups that the batteries for one or the other are at "critical" status. The last time, the mouse pointer suddenly stopped moving altogether until the battery was changed.

What is the average life expectancy for batteries when used in these devices? I've been picking up the lithium batteries that are supposed to last years and years. In other electronic devices, they HAVE. In this new cordless mouse and keyboard, it seems they need to be replaced every couple of WEEKS or the mouse and keyboard just stop working suddenly.

Is this normal? If I am going to be forced to buy a whole new eight pack of batteries every three months, I might as well go back to an older plain-vanilla model of mouse and keybaord with cords that plug directly in to the motherboard.

Thanks,

-NYC
 

Answer:Cordless Mouse/Keyboard Battery Life Expectancy?

My keyboards last months between changes. But mice vary a lot. Those that automatically turn off after an interval obviously last longer than those that don't.

The mouse I am using right now needs new batteries about every 2 days. Yes, 2 days. Lithiums may last 3 days. I have 2 of these kb/mouse sets and the other is just the same. So, I use rechargeable NiMH batteries. They last almost as long as regular batteries (and twice as long as NiCAD's). I have the charger handy and just change them as needed. You really need to do something similar or a year of batteries will cost you a fortune.

Most I have had last about a month. I wouldn't say that 2 weeks is too bad, depending how long the machine is used each day.

Hi, I have had my T430 since August of 2012 at the start of college. I am currently running windows 8.1 pro and I recently just noticed my battery life issues and after installing lenovo settings I discovered that my battery's capacity is at 27% of the original capacity. The battery life is really bad, e.g. it says 15 minutes remaining at 25% on POWER SAVER mode.  I have google this and it said to "reset my battery" but unfortunately 8.1 Lenovo power manager doesn't have that feature.  I am just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for what to do?  Will I just have to get a new battery?

To all owners of X1 Carbon 2017 (5th gen).I read all of those reviews where people are impressed by 10+ hours of battery life (15,5h advertised), but I can't really figure out how....!? First time I tested was a normal working day - Firefox (a lot of Flash it must be said), Outlook, Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat. Nothing really heavy, no peripherals except Bluetooth mouse. Brightness dimmed 1 level below the ideal. It lasted for about 4 hours! I windows's list of apps affecting battery life, Firefox was on 1st place with 32-35% Second attempt - same set of tasks, however less Firefox (no flash) - 7 hours. Now in the middle of a 3rd attempt (using Opera this time) - battery time remaining indication goes over 10h only when I completely stop using the laptop Not many apps running in the background either (Dropbox, Skype...) So my question - do you guys get more than 10h of battery life and HOW? Do you enable "Battery Stretch"? How actively do you use it and for what?

I may be unobservant, but I could have sworn that when I turned my PC off, that the infra red light on my wireless mouse turned off too. I have a Microsoft cordless keyboard and mouse and they work very well, but is the light in the mouse supposed to stay on when I close the PC?My commonsense tells me it should as it is battery powered, but I want to make sure from the experts.Please excuse me if this is a complete no brainer, but that sums up my technical knowledge!

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

Hmmm. Can't believe what you read nowadays anymore. I bought a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 to replace an ailing optical laser mouse that's on its last legs, and on the package it said that one "AA" battery would last for one entire year without replacing. What it meant was, it would have took until the next spring before it's time to replace the battery.

Apparently, the mouse doesn't think like that, it appears, and when I was looking down at it, there was a red warning light indicating that the single battery had already been exhausted from use. Between surfing the web and playing some Team Fortress 2 now and then this is more than just a "mobile" mouse.

Answer:Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 - Low Battery Already?

I have never use that mouse but the first thing I would do is try another battery. Make a note of the date installed and go from their. At the present time I have 4 Microsoft battery powered mice with no problems. Many years ago I did have a Microsoft mouse that eat batteries like a puppy eating pork chops. I just through the dam thing away but you might be able to RMA yours. I have been reading reviews and most people complain about is it gets hot with heavy use. I really don't know how that could happen.

If I power down my Yoga 2 11 with the wireless mouse dongle connected, it discharges my battery. After 12 hours the battery drops from 100% to 76%. If I remove the mouse dongle the battery charge stays at 100% after 12 hours. I've also seen that the laptop never sleeps when the wireless mouse is connected. My Yoga 2 11 is only 2 weeks old. I had Lenovo support check the computer and they could not find anyway to fix the sleep or battery drain problem. I returned the computer to Best Buy and got a replacement.

Hi all,
I've owned my Lumia 920 for 3 years now, purchased brand new and always looked after it. I've had no issues until yesterday, except for about 2 months ago the side-camera button stopped working to load the camera app and take photos (app tile and on-screen capture button now).
The night before last, I put my phone on charge whilst I went to sleep and when I woke up in the morning I found that the battery was showing as being in saver mode. I thought the lead had come loose so I let it charge again and confirmed it had the charge icon. When I took out the lead 30 mins later it had even less charge.
I thought the phone might just be going screwy so I did a soft reset (held volume down and power until the screen went off, and then the phone vibrated and reset). When the phone came back to life, it had 100% power.
Within 3 hours I was down to about 50% when it had just been sat on the desk, idle, next to me. I turned the phone off and on again, and the battery life was back up to about 98%.

Hello

I just purchased a Satellite L775-15q and I want to know the best plan to charge my battery, so it can last as long as possible.
Should I leave the laptop always connected on the charger power cord, no matter if it has full battery or not? Should I always let the battery drop to 10% and then charge it up to 100% and then remove the cord? Or should I do that from time to time and not every day?

Thanks!

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

On windows 7 this mode on Energy management software limits the charge percentage to 60% on Z580 But the charging doesnot stop it keeps charging and discharing to keep the level stable at  60%. Does that not void the whole point of running this mode?

Answer:Optimizing battery run time and battery life Faulty setting

Welcome to the forum toxicdevil.
 
     The Energy Management for Win 7 is behaving normally. There is a 5% range, for when the system will initiate the charging sequence. It should begin charging when the battery gets down to 55%, and stop at 60%. If your gauge does not stop charging at 60% (Plugged In, Not Charging) you could have a problem.

Hey there,
Yes you read it correctly: I have just received mine, which I purchased because of battery life and overheating and fan noise issues on the Dell XPS 13 i7 7th gen. The 8th gen was supposed to have solved all the issues the previous version was plagued with...
Well... I unboxed it, loaded all of my softwares, installed all the WIndows updates, Dell drivers, you name it. Charged it and started using it. When I unplugged the power cord, first estimate was 4hrs on the Windows battery indicator. Then I installed BatteryBar to have a more reliable estimator. Same.
Later on, I discovered a very strong and very loud fan. Unsurprisingly, the underneath was burning hot.
Got the support team on the phone, whilst I was talking with them, the fan kicked in and I even could give them a glimpse of how loud that was over the phone.
Has any of the lucky owners of the XPS 13 i7 8th gen come across similar issues? 
Sometimes, I am just baffled by the world there is between the promise and the reality....

Answer:XPS 13 8th gen i7 16GB RAM QHD+ Battery Issues 4hrs battery life tops

A brand new system may have an unusually high level of background tasks running simultaneously, such as Windows and other applications checking for and downloading updates, Windows monitoring your usage to optimize technologies such as PreFetch for your usage patterns, etc.  You might want to conduct a battery test after things have settled in a bit more.  The QHD+ display takes 2-3 hours off of the expected battery life, but you should still get 7-8 hours under normal use.  Then again, if you're heavy on WiFi and max out display brightness, you'll get less than that.  The fact that the fans are kicking on also suggests there's an unusually high level of background activity running, so check Task Manager to see if you can find out what's responsible for that.

My old T42 had an option to only start recharging the battery once it fell below a specifiable threshold - like 75%, using the battery maximizer tool. This reduces the number or cycles on the battery, and extends life if you frequently unplug your computer for only a few minutes at a time. I can't seem to find the same option in the lenovo energy management application. HAs anybody else seen, or know of a way to achieve this?

So I reinstalled Vista the other day, and even before that a bit, my battery life was simply terrible. At one time, I was able to get 5 hours maximum. Now, I can (at max) get 2 hours and 15 minutes out of a 9 cell battery. There was a previous topic on this forum, but like many other topics in the Lenovo forums, the topic was deleted. Nearly everything that I've searched for regarding problems with my thinkpad, I have found a topic that linked here, but was since deleted. Very annoying.   So, I have power manager 2.41a. The battery is correctly listed,  (86 Wh Li-Ion). I powercycled it one night, and it changed to 3 hours, but it went back down to 2. I should be getting at least 5, but I've heard reports of people getting 10 hours. I'm no where near that! I'm on power saver setting, and my brightness is at about half. I have all the latest drivers, System Update didn't return anything.  Also, my switchable graphics has stopped working, as it has with plenty of other people. Any word on when a fix for this will be out? It's disappointing to spend $1400 on a laptop, only to have key features stop working. My first experience with Lenovo has not been a good one so far. I thought these things were supposed to be rock solid? That's why I bought it... the keyboard on this one sucks, it's matte instead of rubberized. It's plastic everywhere.... Why spend a premium on something that gets me the quality of an HP or a Dell? Why not spend half the price? &n... Read more

Answer:T400 Battery life very poor. 9 cell battery.

Okay, a couple of things. First to address your battery life. If you are using the latest ATI Switchable graphics drivers then do this: Start -> Run -> type 'MS Config' hit enter. Go to the start up tab and uncheck the following:  igfxpers.exe; igfxtray. For whatever reason, the new ATI switchable graphics driver when on integrated mode hangs the processor causing it to use 50% of the CPU resources. I found my power usage went from 14-16 watt draw back to 8-9w draw. Next for the switchable graphicsdo this: Lenovo just released Power Manager 2 on 1.5.09. So far, I didn't see it available on the Auto Update utility but I found it when browsing the downloads page. So me being OCD about having the latest versions of software/drivers, I decided to download it. After the install, I found that my switchable graphics wasn't in the left click menu as it always has been. I right clicked and did not see it there either. Remembering what I did for the clean install (I went back to factory install), I did the following steps.Restart computer -> go into BIOS and select Discrete graphics only. Let windows start and re-install the drivers. Did another restart to ensure functionality. Then I went back to the BIOS and selected Integrated only. I let windows start, and again it had to re-install the drivers. Once this was done, I entered the BIOS again and put the display to OS detect function and booted windows normally.

I updated to 8.1 and noticed that the orange battery light now blinks all the time (about 1 per second) and the battery only charges 50 - 60% range.  I have Lenovo Energy Management enabled and set to maximize battery life (power plan=balanced).  Tried running the Battery Gauge Reset - it ran for 10+ hours before I had to cancel it to use the laptop... how long does it take to run?? Any fixes? Anyone roll back to Windows 8.0 with any success?

I finally upgraded from the X201 to X270. This is a refurbished mahcine from lenovo. My internal battery discharges very fast. I ran through the utilities. I was on for 2.5 hours surfing with Google Chrome and only had 20% left. Is this normal? If not, I will need to buy an extended battery. My X201 lifespan is much better.

When running on the battery, at the start it suggests some 3 hours of life with 100%, but after less than an hour the system suddenly goes into standby.

I get no "low level" warning any more. The Toshiba Power Saver actions are set up to alarm at 20% and go to standby at 10%. This matches the settings under control panel / power options.
I tried a new battery but the symptoms are exactly the same.

Any ideas?

Answer:Tecra M2 - battery meter/ battery life problem

Nothing immediately springs to mind, but I have a few questions which may help to elicit more information:

- Do you need to plug the M2 in to the charger to make it come out of Standby?
- What happens when you come out of Standby? Does it indicate near 0% of some other value?
- Does it recover from Standby or has it lost any BIOS settings (e.g.) wrong timedate?

Might be worth checking to see if you did anything prior to the problem which may be a factor.

Hi all- I've had my X201T with core i7/2.13GHz, 4GB RAM and 8-cell battery for around 2 months now, and I'm only seeing about 2 hours of battery life before I need to plug-in. I'm running Windows 7 x64 with power options set to "Energy Saver." Is this normal/expected battery life for this configuration? Thanks,Darren David

Answer:Poor battery life on new x201T w/ 8-cell battery

That's not very good. My 4 cell battery gets 2.5 - 3 hours with typical use (wifi on, OneNote, firefox, screen backlight set to 9).My 8 cell battery gets around 6 hours under the same conditions. Video playback can kill those numbers though.

My X1 is about a month and a half old: 1. Battery life on a charge appears to be a little under 3 hours without changing the settings it came with. I know there are setting to maximize the time on one charge but for normal factory settings is this time normal? 2. When I check battery Power and Performance it states that the battery is at 85% of its original capacity. To lose so much capacity in just a month and a half seems odd. Is this normal or can this measure vary? All in all I am having a very positive experience with this computer however I am a little concerned with these power readings I am getting. Thanks in advance.

Answer:X1 Battery Life on a charge and Battery Health Questions

hey bbfolgart,1 - since you did not change any setting, the hours of usage in my opinion is about right; though this also depends on the battery you are using as well as other factors such as screen brightness; application that you're using, if the wireless is on, etc. all of this plays a role on the how much power is left for the battery.2. battery going down to 85% capacity is weird. for this try doing a battery gauge reset from the Power Manager.At the same time, do fully charge the battery and then use your unit without the AC adapter until the battery fully discharges.Recharge the battery and do not use it at this time. Once fully charge, use it again without adapter and see how long the battery last and check the capacity as well.while you do all of this, do check on http://support.lenovo.com if there is any updates for the Power Manager software that you are using and update if applicable.

Answer:Battery life and charge-cycle. Background light life-cycle.

1)  See and follow the hints and tips of the Battery University2) Look at the Z60m part list or into the HMM in order to detect which parts/components are sitting there, this will give you some hint what parts might get heated up a lot near the thermal device.3) AFAIK logmon.exe is part of or belongs to ThinkVantage rescues & recovery. - If it runs as a service on your OS, then you can disable that service or maybe you can just change the scheduling times for that monitor service inside r & r. A look into the r & r manual, which can be found on Lenovo's website, might can tell you more about this.4) Look for yourself here, CCFL backlights for notebooks have usually a life time of 15.000 till 30.000 hours. Yes in practise the life-time will shorten, but this is common for all electronic devices over time.

Just want to add that this means the laptop is using approx 18 watts, which seems to be a very reasonable number, given that just the processor has a tdp of 35 watts. These Core 2 Duos with speed stepping really reduce their energy consumption.

Hi, I recently purchased an Ideapad y560 and I was just wondering how to maximize the battery life and the Laptop's wellbeing. I read the thread http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Value-line/HOW-TO-MAXIMIZE-YOUR-LAPTOP-S-BATTERY-LIFE/m-... which has a lot of information on battery life except it is 2 years old. With my current Hp laptop I take the battery out at 35% and leave it in a ziploc while running the laptop on AC power with no battery connected.  I then try to charge the battery to full after 2 weeks and then kill it back to 35% to restore it.  Is this still the best way to run laptops if the laptop will not need to run on battery power for 1-2 weeks?

You can try this option:http://drop.io/c6qriao/asset/battery-settings-pngIt's on the Lenovo Energy Management (the bright button on next to the right speaker) --> Click on the "mechanical weel" on the bottom --> Choose the second option....

what will i need 4 cell, 6 cell 12cell? which one?

ps. and i know that i can change powerplan and tweak some settings but i think a new battery would be best.

Answer:best battery to give longest battery life?

Assuming that they are all designed to fit your laptop, you need to look at the ratings. Basically, you want the one with the greatest Ah (amp?re-hour) as that should last longest. Although this usually means the battery with the most cells, it doesn't always follow. Check their specifications.

I have a 2013 X1 Carbon.  The battery had originally given me 4-5 hours of life on normal settings.  Recently it had gone down to 2 hours, close to 3 if I used power saver mode, dimmed the screen, etc.  So I got a replacement battery -- and it made no difference.  The battery was installed by a service tech, since it's not user-replaceable.  I thought maybe it was a defective battery (or the tech put the old one back in by mistake), so I called, and they sent me another new battery.  SAME THING.  Battery life is still about 2 hours.   I installed all updates and ran a complete virus check (no viruses).  I run a normal amount of programs and nothing crazy - Chrome web browser, MS Office applications, Skype, and a few others.  I can't understand this at all.  Any ideas would be most appreciated!

Answer:Battery life terrible even with replacement battery

BatteryBar Pro helps me monitor how much battery I am using and how much I have left.  I tend to average about 8 watts of drain when I'm using my 2015 X1 which translates into about 6 hours of use with a 50 watt hour battery.  Download it (they have a free version too which is a little more limited in functionality) and that coupled with your Task Manager should help you quite a bit.  Task Manager allows you to sort open programs by how much CPU they are using so you can figure out the offender.  Chrome is a notorious battery suck but I doubt even Chrome could cause the severe drain you are experiencing.

My family, myself are long time Lenovo Thinkpad T users.  I currently have a T 520.  It's fine as it always has been and quite pleased,  but I would now like something much lighter and it has developed a little glitch that doesn't seem reparable.  I will still keep it as a second, back-up laptop.  I just ordered the T460s that is to my liking and right in my price range (got the basic one new from Lenovo for under $800).   But to my dismay and amazement, I keep reading and hearing about lousy battery charge times ranging from 4 to 7 hrs when it is suppose to be at least 10 hrs.  And about all kinds of efforts and ways to increase it with apparently little success.   I have searched several times in this Thinkpad T forum (and elsewhere) on the latest, up to date info and experience regarding the battery and maximizing, extending battery life for the T460s.  I have not found anything beyond around 10/16/16.    As of 2/12/17, I am wondering what battery is now going into T460s, like the one being built for me.   Is it the same as always or something diferent, new, improved? Are T460s users still having the same problems and issues with the length of the battery charge? Has anyone found something, anything that really does maximize, improve or extend T460s battery life? Thanks, Randy

Hi, I recently ordered and started using a T500 with P8600 processor and 9-cell battery (the one sticking out in the back). After adding 2GB extra memory and an Intel x25-m g2 SSD, I started using it with Windows 7. I have been using it for a little more than a week now, and I've noticed that battery life seems quite bad. Granted, I've only run it on battery for a longer period once, and then I got about 3h 10 min running time on battery. This was with graphics switched to intel, optical drive turned off, wlan and 3g-card off, screen dimmed to half, power plan set to power source optimized.Usage was fairly light, editing code inside Visual Studio. Would this be expected running time? It seems quite short to me, considering my old HP nc8430 with T7200 processor (34W TDP) and 7200rpm disk got nearly 5 hours when it was new.. Is there any kind of extended battery available?

Hello,
A week or two ago, I started seeing a pop-up appear on my Inspiron screen (I run Windows 8). The pop-up said that the AC adapter was not recognized, and therefore, the battery would not charge. It was the same 65W adapter that came with the laptop. I hit F2 at startup to check the BIOS, and it said the adapter wasn't recognized. I decided to order a new adapter. While I waited for it to arrive, the battery gradually drained down, but the laptop continued to work while plugged in.
The new adapter came today, an official Dell adapter. I plugged it in... Same error message. Adapter not recognized.
I ran a check on the battery; the system says the battery is fine. I pulled the battery, and the laptop still worked via the adapter. I jiggled and checked all the connections. Couldn't find an issue and couldn't make it work.
I checked the BIOS version and date, and it's from 2013. Time for an update! I downloaded the latest version, but here's the problem: It won't install without the battery sitting at at least a 10% charge. The battery, of course, won't charge with either adapter (it's reading at 1% now). So I can't update the BIOS without some battery life, but I can't make it recognize the adapter and charge the battery without the updated BIOS (assuming that's even the problem, but I'm hopeful that's all it is).
If anyone has any suggestions for how I might make this work, I would very much appreciate it! Thank you!!!

Answer:Catch-22: No BIOS updated without battery, no battery life without BIOS update...

Please list Dell model number and version of windows. Ex: Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10
If you don't know, type msinfo32 onto the search box, and then look for System model.....
In the meantime, please check the USB port, where the AC adapter is plugged into system, is loose. You could also wiggle the Adapter's end while checking it in the BIOS to see if the Adapter's type appears.

Question: pc battery life

How long apprx does the battery in pc motherboard last for? What are the warning signs if it is failing. If it fails does it mean buying a new m/board or what? thanks in advance.

Answer:pc battery life

Battery life is not fixed - I've had many motherboards and never had to replace a single battery - a friend had to replace a battery after less than 2 years.The first indication is that the system fails to remember time and date and reverts to the BIOS basic settings on boot-up. If the battery fails, its normally just a matter of replacing it. Some older PC have mobos with the battery soldered into place, but even these CAN be replaced. But the modern ones take watch-type batteries you can pick up from any PC repair shop.

I would say it's okay, though be sure to use the battery because if you always use the power supply the battery will then lose some of its power. So by using it, it helps it stay charged longer

Lap top battery life. What is the best way to take care of a laptop battery.

Will it be alright to leave it in indefinitely, as I will be using it lots at home off the mains?

Answer:Battery life

I've had mine about 14 months now and I leave the battery in the laptop all the time. The laptop runs from the mains all the time, I rarely use it (mobile) on the battery for normal use. Obviously therefore the battery is always charged to 100%, so about once a month I run the laptop on battery just to discharge it, then plug it in again and run the laptop on the mains to recharge. This seems to work okay, it appears that I haven't lost any of the original time that the laptop will operate via battery, about 2 hours in the case of my Dell Inspiron 1545.

Question: Battery Life

Could someone be kind enough to help me?I want to preserve my battery for as long as possible - on my last machine the battery capacity diminished very quickly.How can I extend the life of my battery? I am using a Samsung Q45. The battery is lithium ion. Should I let it run out fully then recharge? Should I keep it connected to the mains at all times? etc.Many thanks

Answer:Battery Life

If you run mostly on mains then remove the battery when its fully charged. Once every couple of months reconnect battery and run it completely flat then fully charge again.

Question: Battery life,IBM

Hi, I have an IBM 600x laptop. I have found new batteries online,but since this machine is so old, I'd like to know how long a charge will last or shouild last with a new battery ? I'm sure it is not like todays batteries? Thanks, Tommy
 

Answer:Battery life,IBM

Can you run your laptop off AC power WITHOUT the battery installed?

If so, only connect the battery once or twice a month, or so, to check that it is still holding a full, or nearly full, charge.
That way you should get more life out of your battery.

I got around 3 years battery life out of my old Gateway Solo 9300, that could NOT be run without the battery installed (even if the battery was stuffed).

All laptops / batteries, are unique.
What figures are quoted for one combination may be completely different to your combo.

Sorry can't be more definite. Bazza

Question: Battery Life

My friend told me that if I keep my laptop plugged in to charge it that it would start loosing battery life if I keep it plugged in even if it finished charging. Is this true? Usually I leave my laptop on overnight because I'm a torrenter(I download and seed torrents) and so I end up keeping my laptop plugged in so it won't run out of battery. Is this okay for me to do? Any help is appreciated. Thanks is advance.

Question: Battery Life

I was just wondering about my laptop battery. Do I want to be sure it is fully dead before plugging it in? Or does it matter? Can I use the battery half way, than plug it in with no harm to the battery life? Thanks in advance.

(Note) My laptop is new, I bought it a few days ago, so it has a modern battery, just in case anyone is wondering.

Answer:Battery Life

Batteries now work on 'cycles' - the number of times the battery can be recharged, which is limited - anywhere between 300 and 2000 times depending on the quality of the battery. If you charge it when the battery level is halfway, then that's another cycle used. This means you've only gotten half the charge, but you've used up a full 'cycle', if you know what I mean. It technically doesn't damage the battery life, but it does mean the battery's life will be used up more quickly.

Keep in mind, I've used my netbook now for over a year without caring how long or when I charge it. I haven't had any problems.

Edit:During the quick bit of research I did for this post, I found that Macbooks have 80% charge after 300 charge cycles. This is less than a year's usage, assuming you use it fully every day...

hello jdemnyan1116

if the motherboard battery does go dead, when you boot it up you'll probably get a "CMOS Checksum " error....

meaning all the settings in the BIOS setup area are at default including the time/date.......you'll have to rest it

I have had my T61 for <2yrs and the battery will not hold a charge.  Everytime I unplug the computer it dies....Any words of adivce or in the same boat?

Answer:Battery Life

Hi jeepchick76, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
 
Lithium ion batteries can last 300-500 cycles, but there are other factors which effect life: Capacity reduces over time, even if you're not using it, typically over 2-3 years. Keeping them fully charged, and/or at high temperatures accelerates aging. If your laptop is mainly plugged in, they can last as little as 12-18 months. Check Battery University or Wikipedia for more information.
 
One thing to check is whether your battery is covered by this replacement program:

Question: Battery Life

Hi everyone!

I couldn't find a discussion on battery life in Windows 7, so I decided to create a thread.

I recently installed Windows 7 Build 6956 on my laptop to try it for some time. I'm liking it so far. Using the Balanced power option in 7 I'm getting maybe 20 minutes longer battery life compared to using the Power Saver option in Vista. I'm guessing this is a good improvement since Balanced still allows full performance when needed and Vista cuts performance. I haven't tried Power Saver in 7 yet, but I guess it might give me a little extra time.

Has anyone else timed their battery life?


PS: I also noticed a difference in wake up time from sleep when I open the laptop lid. Windows 7 takes just a second to wake up and Vista takes about 4-5 seconds. Has anyone else noticed this difference?

Hey hethoofd,

I havent got around to running 7 on battery yet, but yes I am suitably impressed by Startup, wakeup, from both sleep and hibernate and reboot times.

The power saving that I have seen so far seems also pretty impressive. I am mainly surfing the forums not the best of tests but it does allow me to see how 7 switches down during periods of inactivity.

When I get around to using bat I'll let you know

Question: X61 battery life

I am yet another X61 customer who is extremely disappointed in the short battery life of this model.  Our company previously had 35 of the X30/X31 model, and all of those batteries lasted four to five years.  We now have 39 X61's.  Imagine my surprise when multiple users started notifying me that the batteries were dying after only 16-17 months of use. Here's my question:  I have two users whose four-cell lithium ion enhanced batteries died after 16 months of use.  One user reports that he uses his laptop on battery power twice a day every workday during his train ride to and from work.  The other user reports that she rarely if ever uses battery power since she's in the office virtually all of the time.  Why did both batteries die within weeks of each other, when one had heavy use and the other had virtually no battery use? My only consolation is that I located new generic Li-ion batteries from an eBay seller for less than half the price that Lenovo is asking, even at Lenovo's sale price.  I just ordered my first dozen; I'm sure I'll be ordering a couple dozen more in the coming months.      

Answer:X61 battery life

I was told that Lenovo monitored this forum, yet I've received no answer to my inquiry from them or from any volunteers.  How do two X61 batteries die within a week of each other, when one had heavy use and the other virtually no use at all?  Anyone?  I have 39 of these laptops and don't wish to buy batteries for all of them every year if I can avoid it.  The lithium ion batteries in the X31s lasted four to five years, so what's the difference?

Question: T42 Battery Life

I'm purchasing a replacement battery for my T42 ThinkPad.  On average, how long can I expect the battery to hold a charge once fully charged?

Answer:T42 Battery Life

Did you get the six cell or the nine cell battery?  As I recall I got about four and a half hours on my T42 on the nine cell with the screen dimmed to about half and WiFi on, just browsing and the like.  It was a 15" SXGA+.  You'll do better with a 14" screened model.  A lot of the battery life depends on the settings.  Dimming the screen as much as you can will help.  Whether WiFi is on is another.  Running in low power if you can will help too.  Office and Internet don't need more than low power mode.

Question: Battery Life

Is there some type of diagnostic I can use to determine if my laptop battery is at an end or if the settings are just really screwed up somewhere? I have a two year old Toshiba laptop that I am unable to use unless it is plugged in. This has been going on for a while but I was able to get at least 10 minutes out of it until tonight. If there is some way that I could test it before putting the money down for a new battery I would love to hear about it. Also, if anyone could tell me the settings I should be using for the longest battery life available I could check mine to see if they are not where they should be.

Thanks
 

Answer:Battery Life

It could be the battery but it could also be that your charger isn't working properly and not charging the battery. The third possibility is that the mother board connection where you plug the charger into the notebook might be bad. Unfortunately, you will have to wait for someone that knows, volts and amps so they can explain how to use a multimeter to see if it is a hardware problem before you purchase another battery.

personal informations removed 

Answer:Battery life

Syngonium,
 
Personally, I would recommend keeping the battery in the notebook for several reasons:
 
1) It protects you against data loss if the AC power glitches
2) It ensures the system will run 100% CPU capabilities on demand - some systems will scale the CPU a bit if the battery is removed to ensure adequate power is available to support all USB and other possible connections.  The battery helps the system manage through any peaks in power demand.
 
If you feel that you want to store the battery, I believe the popular recommendation is to store it at about 40% charge level.  Others may have somewhat different recommendations - I'm not sure there is an absolute answer.
 
Best regards,
 
Mark

Question: Battery Life

When a battery on a laptop loses its battery life, do you usually contribute that to the adapter that charges the battery, or the battery itself? Reason I ask is because i've had my HP dz8000 (or zd) for about 4 years now. It is a desktop replacement and never really had a lot of battery life in the first place. It has a 3.4 intel P4, 2 gig ram, and a 256 mb video card. When i first purchased it i got two batteries, and they both lasted about an hour in a half. As time went on they kind of slowly lost their charge, and were down to about 50 minutes to an hour. Then within a week BOTH batteries died to where the laptop didn't get anymore than 8 minutes (on the best power save setting).

I was going to purchase a new battery, but the suckers run like 160 dollars. Then I got to thinking about how both batteries died at the same time. And how one battery was barely ever used (only switched them out like a handful of times on long trips) and it died at the same time and will only give me 8 minutes.

Okay long story short, i was starting to think it could be the adapter. And since the adapter is hella cheaper I was hoping it would be that. What do you guys think?

Answer:Battery Life

Hello,

No batteries last forever. Every rechargable battery dies after a period of time. Even the little AA ones you use with the Wiimotes or whatever. You will see that after a few years of constant use and recharge they need to be charged more often till they cant work anymore.

I know tha tin the case of the AA batteries this is because of the Acid that is in them starts to degrade over time and not hold the charge for long. I do not know how the laptop batteries work as per the interior. But i would guess it is along those lines.

Plus having the battery in if you are using a wall adapter will help kill the battery faster.

Cheers,
Mak

I purchased a HP Envy 15 x360 TouchSmart Laptop and the battery life is horrible.  Another way for HP to make money. I do not recommend this product and want to make sure everyone is aware of the additional cost involved with it's purchase.  I have only had this laptop since 2/13/15 and already the battery will not charge.  You either have the option of buying an extended warranty at the time of purchase (as I recently learned) to cover only the first battery replacement or if you choose not to do that then you must pay to have the battery replaced.  It has to be sent in for this to be done or you have to be a computer tech yourself in order to change out the battery as there is not access to the battery from the back of the laptop.  The entire back has to be taken off to get to it. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS LAPTOP FOR THIS REASON.  I love the touch screen and the overall function but the battery issue is not optimal.  I can't believe that for the price I paid I now am forced to spend addtional money in the amount of hundreds of dollars to have it working properly.
