Laptop Batteries are essential for keeping a laptop running properly. In
many cases, businesses, whether personal or corporate, depend on laptops
for business dealings day to day. There are a number of ways to properly
care and maintain a laptops main power source, the battery. Battery
construction of laptop batteries is very different from other traditional
electronic device batteries. A brief overview of the construction of
laptop batteries will help provide insight into factors that affect the
life and care of laptop batteries.

Laptop batteries are constructed with a number of crucial components to
regulate charge and power supply to the laptop. A thermistor measures the
charge of the battery and regulates how much charge the laptop sends to
the battery. When the battery is fully charged, the thermistor tells the
laptop to stop charging. Safety fuses and breakers in the laptop battery
also help prevent overcharging and aid in overall functionality of the
laptop battery. So there is an essential communication that must occur
between the components of the laptop battery and the laptop itself to
ensure proper function of both the computer and the power supply.

Laptop batteries are becoming more advanced that other types of
batteries. In the past they were constructed of NiCd or NiMH which
provided less power and did not recharge well. Lithium polymer batteries
are the newest revelation in battery technology and they are leaps and
bounds beyond old metal batteries. They provide the right amount of power
and charge in a fraction of the time of metal batteries. The advantages
of lithium batteries make new laptop batteries more practical. Lithium
batteries therefore help improve the life of laptop batteries and also
make them a more valuable battery for the money.

There are a number of precautions to take to ensure safe and practical
function of the laptop battery. Some laptop batteries can become
overheated from charging which can create a fire hazard. It is important
to place the laptop battery in a location that is free of flammable
objects such as paper or furnishings. In general, it is good to avoid
extreme temperatures for proper optimal function of a laptop battery.
Battery life of a laptop battery depends greatly on how the laptop is
used. A laptop battery will not last very long without being charged. A
useful method to extend battery life is to close as many unnecessary
programs as possible. By closing programs that will not be needed will
save useful battery life.

These are just a few pieces of information about laptop batteries that
will help the user understand how to care for laptop batteries and how to
manage laptop battery life. There is much more information about laptop
batteries, including battery construction, battery charging and much
more.
