I have HP Pavilion g6 notebook for 2.5 years and I started to get message about Primary(internal) battery 601 stating that is has low capacity and may need to be replaced. Can I still use it without problems when plugged in. If no, then how to replace it .
Just recieved my haswell xps 12 yesterday, overall the machine is great, but I have one outstanding issue that has just made me call dell support to return it . The battery life is showing as only holding 75% of it's design capacity in the my dell software and widows 8 battery report. As battery life is one of the major reasons I'm upgrading, I don't think I can put up with the battery being so degraded at this stage, and I'm not getting anywhere near the stated time in the various reviews.
I am buying a dv5t off ebay but none of the laptops on there come wit the high capacity 6 cell battery offered on HP's website. Is there any place I can buy one? I've tried ebay but it doesn't appear there are any on there.
Also, model number or serialnumber for the high capacity 6 cell so I can check online for it that way.
I have 2 extra high capacity 6-cells (compatible with dv4, dv5, and several other compaq models) that i don't need because hp will be sending me my replacement dv7 soon and they dont fit. i want to sell them but i don't even know what a good asking price would be(hp does not even sell them individually on their website). they've been sitting in my fridge for the last month and have hardly ever been used, one of them i believe is still 100% capacity.
to prolonging my 6-cell high capacity battery that just came with my dv4t? My previous laptop which was a Sony Vaio(purchased new in Jun of 08) had a battery life of two hours. In December of 08, it all of a sudden only was able to last 50 minutes, and this became a huge problem. Are there any tips for prolonging a battery's full life as much as possible?
Recently my T510 9 cell battery suddenly stopped working. According to the Lenovo battery utility, the battery condition is poor and it suggests replacing a battery.
However, the battery seems still have 99% capacity, either by Lenovo utility or by other softwares. Before the failing it lasts 3-4 hours and charges normally.
I read several posts online and see some people have similar problems. It is suggested that maybe one of the cells fail so the circuit stopped the battery from working/or the safety circuits just malfunctions? Or indeed I need to replace the battery.
I understand that messing with battery is risky and I believe it is detected as not working for a good reason. However, I am wondering if there is a way to assure that my battery is completely dead, but not a problem with other hardware or the OS, before I purchase a new battery. For example, using a volmeter on the whole batteryto see if I can get a reading, or opening up the battery case and test on each cell?
Is it doable to replace a single cell if one of them fails?
PS: For people who says that they connect two terminals of the battery to a volmeter and see no readings, I believe you also need to ground the safety pin to turn on the battery.
I check my battery count almost every day, what I have noticed is that the full charge capacity decreases by around 5 every day. Three days ago it was at 5182, and now it's at 5169. I run my laptop on external power most of the time. Is such steady decrease normal?
I have a look at my battery report today and found something really awkward. I bought the computer seven months ago, and the battery start with Design capacity 44,000wWh, while the full charge capacity is quite closer to the design capacity. However in the battery report it shows that two weeks ago the design capacity suddenly drop from 44000 to 40734mWh in one week, and then afterwards it drop to 39000mWh. And the actual full charge capacity seems to linger around 37000mWh. Is there something wrong or is my battery just wear out naturally?
It's been about 5 months since I started to use my Thinkpad X230. Only three days ago it could work for 5-6 hours without charging. I could charge it at home, bring it to school and use it without charging. But suddenly the battery started to die in a short amount of time. Then I explored the battery settings a little bit. I found out it says "Battery Condition: poor" and "Your battery can 47% of its original full charge capacity."
It has warranty until 2015. So can Lenovo send me a new battery if I want so? Or is it a problem that warranty doesn't cover?
I have a new Flex 14. When I turn it on, I frequently get the following message "The battery is charged to a high capacity. Staying above 70% of capacity for a long period of time is adverse to the battery health. Enable 'Conservation Mode' in Settings." I can not find "Conservation Mode" in "Settings." ?
I have a Vaio CR-190 and am having battery problems. Over the past couple months, my battery would show a full charge when plugged in, but when I would unplug the computer the battery would literally drop from 100% to 80% and began dropping futher. A few weeks ago, the battery would drop from 100% to 50% or so when unplugged and the battery would quickly drain. Recently, however the battery holds no charge at all and the computer will only run through the a/c. My battery management utility shows an X through the battery and says there is no battery detected even though the battery is properly installed. Everything else on the computer is running fine. I'm just looking for some advice on what's the best steps to take next. I've read that Sony has had some problems with batteries suddenly dieing and wondering if that's what it sounds like. The battery is from Sony and is the extended life larger one if that matters.
i have a Sony Vaio laptop that seems to have a good battery but after i use it on battery for 2-3 minutes it stops .
What is very strange is that in those 2-3 minutes the battery shown as available is draining like 3-4% per minute and the laptops stops and doesn't want to start on battery although it shows over 80% still left .
I was just wondering if anyone experienced a battery increase after down-grading their Vaio Z from Vista/Win7 to XP? If so, by how much?
I'm currently holding a Z710dd (canadian vaio) with a standard battery with windows 7 installed. I previously had a netbook that lost a good hour and half from Windows XP to Windows 7. Even after disabling a lot of the windows aero mumbo-jumbo and themes
I decided to upgrade to windows 7 rc. Everything works including brightness and volume controls, which people were having trouble getting to work. I am experiencing extreme battery drain or usage? I charge it, but battery starts to fall rapidly. I wanted to know if anyone has any fixes for this or what others have been experiencing on windows 7
I'm loving the TT now but have only had one problem which I don't understand. I have the TT11VN/X but basically I have my battery manager setting as follows... quick charge off and enable battery care function to 50% and other little settings are changed but this has happend to me three times where Ive turned my laptop on and it's charged to 100% and the battery settings are back to the way they used to be where batter care is not on and quick charge is on...
