Laptops have replaced desktops for many people. As we've become a world of commuters, the ability to bring our work and entertainment anywhere has become important. Unfortunately, many laptop batteries, even the better ones, don't last very long, with an average of about two hours. While this may be adequate for some people, others who go on long plane rides or will be in a public location without a power source for a long period of time may find this too short of a battery life. There are some simple ways to maximize laptop's battery life.
1. Dim your monitor completely. On most Dell laptops, this can be accomplished by pressing the "Fn" key and simultaneously pressing the "down arrow." Since the monitor consumes the most Dell Studio 1555 Battery life, dimming it even half way can save you up to an hour on your Dell Latitude D630 Battery.
2. Close all applications you are not using. Applications take processing power, which in turn takes battery power.
3. Turn off your internal wireless antenna, which can be done with a button on either the top or side of the keyboard (consult your owner's manual for the exact location) and disconnect any external devices that may be attached, like cameras or printers. Cameras, particularly, often use the computer's battery to charge up.
4. Go to the "Control Panel" and then the "Power Options" menu. Select the "Dell Power Saver" plan. This will slow down your computer's processing power but will extend its Dell XPS M1530 Laptop Battery life.
There are many laptop battery packs manufacturers, and even more retailers to buy your laptop battery from. However, your biggest concern in purchasing a laptop battery will be to choose the battery that fits your computer. For this you will need to know the make and model number of your laptop; if you don't know this offhand or don't have the necessary paperwork, check the inside of your laptop's battery compartment while the computer is off and unplugged. There you should find the model number, along with some other information. You may also find the part number of your laptop battery, located on the casing of the battery itself.
When buying a laptop battery pack, you will probably only have one or two choices that fit your computer. Choose the Acer as07b31 laptop battery with the longest life available for your computer. There are several different kinds of laptop batteries; because the technologies of each are very different, a laptop must be designed specifically for the type of battery it uses. Most laptops are only designed to use one type of battery technology.
