HP/Compaq :: Dv6 Battery Wear Off

Oct 6, 2009

I got my hp dv6 last Monday, so it's quite new. About three days ago I downloaded System Information for Windows trying to find out which was my GPU temp(what I didn't find, it only shows only HDD and CPU temp) and looking other stuff I noticed that my battery wear off was 7% while the battery is(was?) also new, so it got me preoccupied, so I checked it again yesterday and it was 9%!, I checked today and it's at 10% . Just c'mon I don't dedicate all my free time to plug and unplug the battery ,so why the fcuk(note there's no grammatical error) it wears off so quickly,

HP/Compaq :: Dv5t Excessive Battery Wear

Jan 16, 2010

Does anybody else with a dv5t have excessive battery wear? I purchased the laptop in August of 2008. According to hwmonitor my battery can only hold 30758 mwh down from the designed capacity of 47520 mwh. I rarely used the battery. Maybe once a week for 5 minutes to move the laptop.

I asked a friend with a dv5t purchased around the same time and his capacity is down to nearly 27000 mwh. Our laptops are the same except his has the intel integrated graphics while i got the 9600m gt. Also he uses the battery almost daily.

When i first got the laptop i got nearly 2 hours out of it. Now i can barely get an hour.

We both calibrated our batteries a few times by fully discharging and fully charging a few times which did nothing.

I know that batteries experience wear but does this seem excessive? I believe the estimate is about 10% a year. But this is almost 50% wear in a year and a half.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6345us Battery Wear

May 7, 2009

I have a Pavilion dv6345us that I got back in June 2007 and I like the notebook but one of the main problems is that it keeps messing up the batteries.

The battery it came with ended up dying completely (doesn't hold a charge) within a year or so. Then I bought a 12-cell battery off eBay (generic brand) last summer/fall and now that battery too is almost completely dead.

I don't know if its a problem with the laptop or the battery so I don't know what to do. One thing I do notice is that the computer heats up a lot frequently so maybe that is the reason for the battery wear?

Only thing I have done to the computer is upgrade to 2GB RAM from the 1GB RAM it came with, a month after I bought it.

Apple :: Macbook Nonremovable Battery And Battery Wear

Jun 12, 2009

I am looking into getting one of the new macbook pro's. Though I must say the non removable battery does concern me a bit. In past laptops I have had, I without a doubt saw increased battery wear and tear when I left the batter in the laptop while the laptop itself was plugged in. I completly destroyed a battery on my Dell laptop by doing this for about a month when it was asking as a desktop. I took the laptop which used to get around 4 hrs of battery life and then after a month it got no more than 15 minutes.

So after that I always took the battery out, so now with the new macbook pro's you cannot take the batteries out, so wont the batteries wear down to nothing faster than if you took them out when not using them?

Dell :: Battery Wear Level

May 27, 2010

Just a heads up to all the studio XPS owners. I opened up HWmonitor to check some temps and I noted the battery wear level and its 23%! I have only had the laptop since mid February and its degraded this bad very quickly. Needless to say I will be calling Dell and getting a replacement.

But I thought I would bring it to the attention of the community, because its been so helpful for me I try to give back.

Dell :: 20% Wear Level ( Battery)

Dec 11, 2009

I bought my Dell Inspiron 1545 about 6 days ago, I decided to install windows XP and drop vista in-order to save the battery life from vista hungry resources but

it didn't go very well i get about 2.15 hours max (with only firefox running and a LAN connection cable plus i shutdown wireless+bluetooth).

from the battery under windows XP, then i read about vista/windows 7 that they have better power management than the ancient XP so i installed the vista basic that came with the laptop but when i measure the battery's wear level which was too late i found out this:

System information for windows: <br />

Acer :: 1810T - Battery Wear

Nov 26, 2009

I have a utility reccommended here called BatteryBar. It has a category called Battery wear. What is battery wear? Is it as it sounds, a degradation of the maximum potential of a battery over time? Is there particular actions that cause an increase in battery wear?

I have a 1 week old Acer 1810T. Up until now the battery wear has been 0.0%. However, I let the battery run down to the point that the computer shutdown. I thought this was a good thing. I know in the old days batteries would develop a memory. They recommended a occasion full run down and charge. I think I read this is not true for the Lithium battery, however.

Well, after restarting my computer I see my battery wear is now at 1.4%. Is this because I let it run down? Also, if I want to my battery to last as long as it can, is it better to take it out when using it at home on AC power? That is about 90% of my usage.

so far, hwinfo32 has determined there is about 6% battery wear.

Acer :: Aspire 5920g Battery Wear Level 49%

Apr 7, 2009

I bought this laptop 5 months ago and I have been monitoring it slowly deteriorating by battery life, it is a 6 cell 4400mAh battery and I use it every day, and make sure not to let it drop below 10% battery power as to not do full discharges and only partial.

I was getting 1hr 50 mins when I first got the laptop which may have been max or min settings I cant remember but anyways which seems not as good as the advertised 2.5 hr battery but I can understand that advertised and actual may differ and max, min would have had an effect. Anyways now after 5 months (Purchased early december) I am only getting 58 mins on full charge at minimum settings, now this does seem quite ridiculous and NHC is reporting 49% wear level.

My question is, is this normal for a Li-Ion Acer battery after 5 months, it seems quite bad to me, and all I can think is the laptop was left on the shelf for a while before i bought it, or that it is defective. I rang acer warranty support and I feel quite fobbed off with them saying this is normal and usage patterns and that their warranty for batteries only last 6 months and I should expect only to get 1/4 of the full charge i did when i purchased after 6 months. So acer is in the business of making low quality batteries?

Sony :: Battery Wear Level- Vaio FE690

Jan 4, 2009

my Sony Vaio FE690 only lasts around 30 min on battery (I tried calibrating, still same life) but every utility that I try (Battery Eater, Notebook control, Everest, etc.) reports a wear level of 0% and a full charge capacity that is the same as the original capacity.

Can anyone confirm that the Sony battery firmware does not report the wear level? I'm wondering if it has something to do with my BIOS upgrade.

HP/Compaq :: How Manyowners Are Experiencing Rapid Keyboard Wear

May 23, 2009

I attached two pictures for reference. The first picture is about 1 month from brand new. The second picture is today, about 5 months from new.

Now I do expect eventual wear. Wear happens. However, I generally expect to get a good amount of use out of a product before the wear occurs. I had a Dell 9300 for 3-4 years. Its keyboard has less (cosmetic) wear then my HP at 1/10 the time frame. I literally have to wear down the key to make the key unreadable. With the HP, they just use a light coating of silver over the black plastic that just wears off readily easily, too easily for my taste.

I know I'm not the only one that has this, but I'm curious what everyone else is experiencing as well. As it stands now, my A, S, D, E, N, O, and space bar all have visible wear off of the silver coating.

Apple :: MBP - MBu Wear And Tearq

Jul 14, 2009

I've been a user of Toshiba, and Acer laptop(s). My MBu is coming tomorrow, and my friend just got a 13" MBP. Does the trackpad, palmrest get shiny like plastic based laptops? Shiny, etc. (I already ordered a BestSkinEver MBu skin and a silicon keyboard cover) I always wash my hands before using a computer (i know thats weird), but even with that it wore out (my first 2 Toshiba laptops), for Acer I got a vinyl wallpaper liner cut it to my likings and put it on the trakcpad, trackpad buttons, the entire laptop + keyboard cover. that's the only way that i avoided the wear. Does Macbook Unibdoy, MBP share the same problems? ( i know the keyboard does)

HP/Compaq :: DV7 Battery Care

Apr 16, 2010

It's been since the DV6000t that I looked at battery & notebook technology.

From then I believed to cyccle the battery a couple times and store it out of the machine @ around 60%.

Is it still so? Will just plain leaving it in the machine all the time plugged in shorten the life or effciency? Or have things progressed?

HP/Compaq :: HP Omnibook 510 Battery

Oct 25, 2009

The 6-cell lithium ion battery would only run it for about 10 minutes. I tried replacing all the lithium ion cells with new ones, made for cell phones, so I doubled them up.

Then, I just got blinking lights when pressing the battery circuit board 'test' button.

So I left it for a long time, several weeks.

Just picked up a complete battery conditioner, with a built-in balancer, normally about 100 bucks for 25.

So I disassembled it, but then probably waited too long (fell asleep) before rehooking up the old cells.

Figured out now I should have left everything alone from the beginning, done several drain and recharge cycles to recondition the cells, and would have had the pack like new.

Now I can charge the pack with the bench battery charger/conditioner/balancer, but the electronics seem 'dead' on the circuit board strip. The laptop thinks it's on AC power when it's on battery, and shows no sign of powering up the pack.

I'm thinking leaving the replacement cells out for too long, before I put the old cells charged, back in, made the circuit board 'forget'.

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Battery

May 20, 2010

i've had my Envy 15 for over two months now and although i don't use it frequently enough my wife noticed that on a full charge, unplug then the next day or so the battery is drained.

Basically here is what she does:
she would charge the laptop up
unplug then use it for like 20 mins
shut down Start>>shutdown
CLose lid

About or two days later she would try to use it and the thing wont turn on. Plug in the brick and voila! thing comes up.

Is she not shutting down properly? or is there some program on sleep eating the battery?
Or is that the rate this battery drains?

this is still on the FACTORY image, i didnt rebuild it

HP/Compaq :: HP 6720 Battery

Jan 9, 2010

I've a 2 year old 6720. The problem is that it is giving me a battery time of around 1 hour max ( a couple of min more maybe) while doing browsing, word, basic stuff.

I installed the HP battery checker software and it says that the health is good, dunno how accurate the app is but thats what it said.

A bit of history, I've been using the notebook 90% of the the time plugged in, and powered on about 15-24 hours a day.

So, time to change the battery? or anything can be done to improve the times?

HP/Compaq :: Calibrating The Battery

Nov 24, 2009

I have been trying to calibrate my HP (DV2700) battery. It would drop from 40% down to 6% and put the computer into standby mode. If I were to turn it back on, it would drain down to 0% and run for another 30 minutes before it powers off.

After that I would give the battery a full charge. I have tried to charge it while the computer was in sleep mode, and while it was on.

It doesn't help that RMclock reports the remaining capacity as like 21mWh remaining when its at the "0%" mark. I do switch between 3 batteries so not sure if that does anything negatively.

(Yes I am well aware that draining it is bad and calibration is not always necessary)
