Laptop battery life - How to maintain it and what to do when it’s over



       Laptops are incredible little machines, aren’t they? First of all, they are portable, meaning that they allow you to work on your projects from virtually any place you find yourself in. Then, they become more and more powerful with each generation that comes up.

       However, they are dependent on their batteries and unfortunately, if you don’t take care of them, you can render your laptop useless outside of your home. Direct-Charging offers you a reliable solution - an external laptop battery charger which can be used to charge a spare battery.


First, some tips for extending your laptop battery life

       Generally speaking, a laptop’s battery should last for about 2-4 years or approximately 300-700 charges. However, battery life is influenced by several external and internal factors, such as the battery type, age or use. Without further ado, here’s what you can do to extend your laptop’s battery life:


  • Consider the battery charge cycles 

           Since each battery is built to handle a specific number of charge cycles, you should act accordingly. A full cycle consists of a battery completely running out of juice and then recharging it up to 100%. 

           Discharge of 50% followed by a recharge to 100% characterizes a half cycle. With time, each such cycle wears down the battery capacity. We recommend having as few full charging cycles as possible per month. 

           A full cycle consists of a battery going from a fully charged status to a fully discharged one and charging it up fully once again. 

           It is necessary to allow the battery to update its internal parameters and to maintain a correct capacity. The latter is calculated in a full cycle through a smart electronic microcontroller placed inside the battery.


  • Close background apps

           Another hint for saving up battery power is checking to see which apps are running in the background without a necessary purpose. Close those apps because they are eating up your battery juice.


  • Use your OS software to help

           Windows and iOS provide you with some neat software to help you maintain battery life. For example, Windows 10 has the Battery Saver, which will turn on as soon as your laptop reaches 20% battery life. 

           Instantly, this mode will block the function of unnecessary apps, stop Calendar syncing and push notifications (and more), conserving as much juice as possible.

           MacBooks come with Power Naps, which will allow you to put your laptop to sleep without having to worry about skipping crucial tasks. Thus, it will save more battery.
