Laptop batteries guide
Read this manual carefully before using the battery for the first time. When opening the package, make sure that the package and the battery are intact. Use only compatible battery types with your laptop.
Do not throw away the used battery with the normal household waste, but hand it in at an official collection point for recycling.
Carefully insert the battery into the notebook's battery compartment and make sure that the battery locks in place. Make sure the battery locking systems are in the locked position. If necessary, also read the operating instructions of the laptop.
Do not use excessive force!
USING THE BATTERY
The charge level of a new battery is usually in the range of 20-80% and it is recommended to charge the battery immediately. The battery can be charged in a temperature range of 5 to 35 ° C. The first charge could take at least 12 hours.
From now on, it will take 2-4 hours to fully charge an empty battery.
To increase the life of the battery, we recommend that you allow the battery to fully discharge for the first 2-4 times and then fully charge it.
To allow the batteries to discharge completely, unplug the power cord and use battery power until the notebook shuts down due to a discharged battery. If you do not use the laptop and / or the battery, the battery will discharge itself.
The battery life under normal conditions is 500-800 charges or 1.5 to 3 years. Li-ion batteries have a limited number of charges.
The single operating time of a charged battery depends on the intensity of use of the battery and the applications used. Operating time depends on battery capacity, external devices and software used, screen brightness, and ambient temperature. Temperature is also important for the "health" of the battery. Do not allow the computer or battery to overheat and store it in a cool place.
If you usually use the laptop only with a charger, or if you do not use it for a long time, you should remove the battery from the laptop to prolong the battery life.
The battery should preferably be stored at 40-75% charge in a dry and cool place, away from direct sunlight. A battery that has been removed from the computer and is fully charged should be recharged after a maximum of three months.
Be sure not to leave the battery empty! Otherwise, the batteries will lose voltage due to self-discharge, and the battery can no longer be used or charged.
EXTENSION OF LIFE
You can extend the life of your laptop battery and save power by lowering the brightness of the screen and using the power saving features of your laptop. When using a laptop, close unnecessary programs and disconnect devices you are not using. Have your laptop serviced regularly (once a year). We recommend that you connect to the mains when writing CD / DVD blanks.
Refer to your notebook's instruction manual, but in general, your computer has indicators:
• Green light is blinking - the battery is being charged
• Green light on - The battery is charged
• Red light is blinking - battery low
• The indicator light is off - the battery is empty
Do not charge the laptop or keep it plugged in during a lightning storm.
Do not charge the battery with an incompatible device.
Avoid dropping or shaking the battery. Avoid causing physical injury to the battery.
Do not attempt to open or repair the battery.
Avoid exposing the battery to liquids. Using a wet battery may result in electric shock or fire.
Do not expose the battery to direct sunlight or direct heat. Outside the computer, store the battery in an antistatic plastic bag and in a cool, dry place.
Use the battery only with compatible laptop models.
Do not throw away the used battery with the normal household waste, but hand it in at an official collection point for recycling. Batteries may contain chemical compounds that are hazardous to the environment.
