Finding the right batteries for your Acer Laptop may be a challenge, but the store that sold you the laptop should be able to help you figure out what kind of battery you need. These laptops require different types of batteries such as Lithium-Ion, NiCad, and NiMH. Depending on what you need, you will need to learn several tricks and tips to get the most out of your battery life. When you do this, you can use the same battery for longer periods of time and not have to worry about running out of power in the middle of that important project.
When trying to extend your battery life, you can try one of several tactics. One is to fully charge your battery before using it. Another is to use the battery all the way down until it has no more power. This will help it charge more completely. Also, if the battery has a full charge on it after an hour or two, take it off the charger. Leaving it on the charger to recycle will also wear down your batter power.
Buying laptops with smaller displays may also help improve your battery life. Keep the screen on the dimmest setting that you are still able to read. Set the Sleep Mode on the computer. For example, if you haven’t used the laptop in fifteen to twenty minutes, it will turn itself off to conserve battery energy. Make sure to also notice the power left on the battery at different intervals. This will tell you when the battery is almost dead, and you need to replace it before you lose all your documents.
Extreme changes in temperature will also cause problems in batter usage. Extreme heat will cause the power in the battery too quickly. Extreme cold will give the battery problems starting up. If at all possible, keep the laptop plugged in to keep the battery power for when you don’t have electrical access for charging. If the battery does become warm or even hot to the touch, it may be a problem with the circuit that helps charge the battery. Make sure to have it checked completely if you are unsure by a professional.
There are three types of batteries used in Acer laptops. These are NiCad, NiMH, and Lithium-Ion. These all have different properties and cannot be used in place of one another. Check your specifications to find out which battery you need for your specific laptop. The NiMH usually has a longer working time than the Lithium-Ion. So choose the one that will give you the best working conditions for what you need. Another thing to keep in mind is the Memory Effect. Charging and then letting the battery go completely down every week or so will keep it from having a continuous charge and not downgrade how much it will charge.
Many people think they can just buy any old battery and go to work. Batteries must be chosen carefully for each Acer laptop. Keeping them charged and working is the key to success. You do not want to lose your important work because the battery goes dead at the most inopportune moment. Take care to watch the meter on the battery and keep it charged to the full potential if at all possible when in use.
