I use a Dell lat c600.and i got three batterys.

One lasts two minutes.

The other,as at when i got it lasts an hour but now 30mins.

While the third lasts 2.30hrs.

I combine the second and third battery cos the laptop has identical slots for battery and cdrom .

I also got this neefiti little app called battery doubler,that helps up my battery time. Now i see a total of 3.10hrs.

The app is a trial by usage but u can get the patch of it with a torrent.

actually, the duration of your battery depends on the kind of program u are running when on battery. The average time for working on batteries is 2hrs.

The micro-processor generates heat, the greater the calculation it does the more heat it generates. The battery is the power source for all the heat. so what do you think?

Use only batteries when there are no alternatives.

Laptop Battery.

Yes! this is one of the thing that worries laptop owners.

My Laptop battery last approximately 2hour 30mins.

Battery is a cell therefore it require your optimum maintenance for high efficiency.

Laptop battery is something that must be handle withe care and not misussing it. Always charge your laptop battery with original recommended chargers only. Why? because rcommended charger input your battery with charges on manufacturer standard, therefore using non recommended chargers may likely weaken your battery each time you plug such charger to your laptop for charging. Also, some laptop users are fun of using their battery to to a zero level charge, please avoid this for battery safety and efficiency.

ok, If is HP or Compaq you can use their utility to do a battery test, which can either pass or fail. www2.hp.com/techcenter/battery/battery_ts.htm">http://h20239.www2.hp.com/techcenter/battery/battery_ts.htm

basically all Laptop batterries should last at least a minimum of 2hrs but as somebody rightly said charging and discharging a battery makes it loses cells thereby causing it to diminish battery life the best way to use your battery is to remove the battery always when you are using current because many people leaves that battery in their laptops when they are using electricity but current surges or low currents affects the battery adversly thereby making the battery have lower cells for charging and makes it not to last long. the best way is

1. remove battery from Laptop if you are using electricity

2. charge battery only when the laptop is not in use

3. Use your sparmodus in your laptop settings when you are using battery

4. battery usage depends on what you are using it for, e.g (movies, surfing or programming)

Funny! Seems my case is the worst on NL. I have this 6 months old acer ASPIRE 5315-2639. Battery life used to be 2hrs or so when new. For abouth 5 weeks now,it does not even attempt to last a second. As power goes,the system dies. In fact,it has to be used with power all the time. This is my first acer. Thank God for this thread. Before reading it, I had concluded acer make fake products and I have been very reluctant to look for another acer battery,

Different stories, different lines.

Your laptop's battery performance highly depends on what u ar usin it for. Be it movies, music, browsin or even wordprocessin.

The battery has a life span. After several charges n discharges, its performance decreases.

The laptop's charger also matters a lot. Due to power surges, the charger may have a burnout (sometimes unnoticable), n d chargin current is affected.

Guys wif battery times lower than 45mins should check their charger, a bad charger might even destroy the battery, crash d hard drive or even the processor n sometimes electrocute u. So its beta runnin a check on d charger when u notice a shorter battery run time.

The real truth is I dont use my laptop with the battery - I have a UPS which I connect and I remove the battery. It is only for use if there is no electricity and I really have to use my laptop - that has helped my laptop life,

I use a laptop battery doubler & it's serving me so well. Usually my laptop last 45mins but now its close to 4hrs. Just indicate if u are interest to test it out. It does nt ve any effect on your battery. It's a software application developed by experts to give u maximum usage.
