Laptops are generally portable computers that make it highly distinguishable compared to others because these can work without wires. The battery laptop allows people to do a variety of tasks and online activities for several hours. Individuals can even add more minutes to their wireless work if the battery is charged the right way. Knowing a few things about these devices and the available options will make it easier for people to operate.

Step 1

Check the type. The battery laptop type will matter in the charging process. Today, many modern laptop models use lithium-ion batteries that provide a number of capabilities. Users can try the unique software that works specifically for the battery. They can charge the battery faster than usual simply by choosing the type of charging in the options available in the software. Cut charging time by as much as 40% to 50% depending on the model. Lithium-ion batteries can also be charged regardless of the currently battery life. People can simply plug in and recharge the laptop even if it is not yet completely drained. There will be no changes to the longevity of the battery or performance.

Step 2

Find an outlet. The battery laptop can be charged simply through an electrical wall socket. Users should try to charge their almost empty batteries at home which will take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to get full again. Some users keep their laptops plugged to the electrical outlet as long as possible and only use the wireless capabilities when they're working in other places. They can also use extension wires safely as long as the electric current is compatible with the voltage of the device. When charging in other places like cafes, restaurants and other establishments, users will most likely be charged a minimum fee.

Step 3

Do not fully drain. Users should not make it common practice to fully drain the battery. Experts recommend that the person recharge as soon as battery laptop life goes down to 10% to 20%. Most laptops will automatically warn the user that battery life is running low. This should prompt the person to recharge. Save all existing work whenever the reminder pops up and plug the portable computer to the nearest outlet.

Step 4

Avoid overcharging. Keep in mind that the battery will continue to charge even when the laptop is turned off. Once the battery life shows 100% or full, remove the plug from the electrical socket. Some individuals choose to keep the plug in for 1 to 2 hours even after the bar indicates full battery laptop life. The battery life percentage is usually shown in the lower right corner of the computer screen. The person can also check the computer properties to get an accurate reading.

Step 5

Maintain safety. People should not leave their laptops recharging through the night or for too long. Individuals should not short or purposefully drain the battery to fully empty it before recharging. These are unsafe practices that can either damage the laptop or battery laptop or cause fire. Check for signs of overcharging or overheating.
