There are three main types of batteries used in modern laptops, they are nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), lithium ion (Li-ion), and lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries. Long story short, lithium polymer is the best among the three. To increasing a battery’s lifespan, avoid extremes heat in temperature, battery operates more efficiently when cool, and also refrain from keeping their batteries plugged in all the time, as this significantly reduces the overall lifespan of the battery.

How To Calibrate Laptop Battery ( Or Smartphones )

If you always charge your laptop or smartphone before it is fully discharged, you will not damage your battery because modern batteries are designed to be used that way, the only problem you will face in the long run is accuracy of the battery life. This is why you must calibrate your battery after a year or two. No software or app required. To calibrate your device’s battery:

  • Discharge your phone fully until it turns itself off.
  • Turn it on again and let it turn itself off until the power button doesn’t respond.
  • Plug your laptop / smartphone into a charger and, do not power up your laptop or smartphone, let it charge until the on-screen or LED indicator says 100 percent.
  • Unplug your charger – done. Your battery is not 100% calibrated.

    Sir,

    Please refer to your advice quoted below – So do you mean I should take battery out from laptop when I am working on my laptop plugged in AC power socket. In fact I rarely use laptop away from power socket so my battery is 100% charged.

    “However, as said in the manual book, do not leave a fully charged battery plugged in at all time to the AC power, this will damage the battery and its capacity. Happened to my Motorola phone (Charged while I was sleeping) and Acer Laptop (Battery is always slotted in with the AC Power on).
    Never over charge a bettery!”

    Robin,

    The author is correct. One of the worst things you can do to a laptop battery is continue charging it at 100%. You’re invoking a mechanical cycle (when the battery realizes it is at 100%, it breaks the circuit) over and over again, which tends to wear down the battery quite quickly.

    Believe it or not, it is better to have an additional battery cycle (i.e., from 100% to 0-5% and back to 100%) than to leave it plugged in for that duration.
