For the longest time I‘ve wanted some mechanism for supporting a laptop in
my truck. Not so I can drive around with it, but because there are occasions
when reviewing photographs in the field would be incredibly helpful. So, I
figured it was about time to finally build something to satisfy my itch.
There‘s still a bit more to be done (like paint, a nonskid pad, and some Velcro
in appropriate places), but here it is in a basically its finished form.
Most students will love the Toshiba Portege R705-P25. That 13.3-inch laptop
weighs just over 3 pounds, so it‘s easy to tote around from home or dorm to
class. Once there, the screen does a good job of dealing with reflections from
harsh classroom lights. Performance is top shelf, besting competitors that cost
more — sometimes much more. One negative is that battery life isn‘t
particularly impressive. If that‘s a concern, and you are willing to part with a
little power and add a little weight, the Toshiba Satellite T235-S1350 outpaces
the Portege R705-P25 by a couple of hours or so in battery-life tests and
costs a bit less. It‘s not been extensively reviewed, but Laptop Magazine likes
the Toshiba Satellite T235-S1350 enough to name it an Editors‘ Choice.
Laptop Battery Life Review
Laptop battery life is one of the biggest problems users face. Most laptops
lose their battery quickly, especially when you need them the most. It can be
frustrating to get a new computer and find that in just a few months, the time
that you can use your laptop dwindles from two hours to an hour or less. So,
how do you keep your battery work for a good long time?
Lin-on batteries are the most popular laptop battery because they don‘t need
to be fully run down before recharging. Lin-on batteries usually weigh less
than NiMH batteries too, which is important in today‘s ultraslim laptop market.
Since they use the newest technology available, Lin-on batteries usually cost
more than NiMH batteries even through they might have the same capacity.
The Sustainability Consortium, along with leaders in the manufacturing and
sales of consumer electronics, today announced plans to establish a system,
including social and environmental considerations, to help consumers identify
"green" electronics. The Sustainability Consortium is co-administered by
Arizona State University and the University of Arkansas.
Working with Best Buy, Dell, HP, Intel, Toshiba, and Walmart, the consortium
will research and publish findings on the lifecycle environmental and social
impacts of electronic products. These findings will be used to support efforts
to identify products as sustainable or "green." This type of information is
designed to reduce consumer confusion and help standardize product claims.
"Customers tell us they want to purchase electronics that have a minimal
impact on our planet. This is an effort to help them do that using a common
methodology that manufacturers across the industry participate in," said Scott
O‘Connell, environmental strategist, Dell. "This is about making it easy for
customers to determine what‘s ‗green‘ and what‘s not, and we‘d like to have
the whole industry involved."
In developing the criteria, the consortium will consider the impacts electronics
have on those who build, use and dispose of them, as well as their
environmental impacts throughout their lifecycle. It also is investigating how to
collaborate with standards and programs with which consumers are already
familiar, such as EPEAT(R) (the Electronic Product Environmental
Assessment Tool) and ENERGY STAR(R), and standards set forth by the
Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition. www.toshiba.ilaptopsale.com
Toshiba Laptop Battery Tips
I have owned a lot of laptops, toughbooks, Dells, Gateway, HP, IBM, Sony,
Acer and the list goes on. I have to say that Toshiba tops my list of PC
laptops. They usually have plenty of USB, Firewire, SD slots, whatever you
might need, its there. They are sturdy, reliable high quality notebooks. No
matter what brand of notebook or laptop PC you buy, you will eventually need
a new TOSHIBA PA3399U-1BAS Laptop Battery. You can go cheap, but I
recommend spending a little extra and getting some decent battery life.
Tip #1 Buy a Lithium Ion – LiON batteries are now used in most new laptops.
Unlike the NiMH battery, LiON laptop batteries have no memory effect. LiON
batteries are also lighter than both NiCd and NiMH notebook batteries. Both of
these advantages equal out to the Lithium Ion battery being the most popular
and most expensive among the various notebook power sources.
Tip #2 You can purchase a battery for around 0-0 which will get you up
How Many Cells Are In A Apple A1080 Laptop Battery
Question from a reader: ―How many cells are in the APPLE A1080 Laptop
Battery? The battery is for a APPLE A1080 and its technical ratings are Li-
ion, 4400.00mAh, 14.40V.‖
The question from the reader is a great question for it gets to the heart of
battery manufacturing and begins to unravel the power of a battery. The
answer is simply: 8 cells. But what does the answer mean and how does the
number of cells relate to the overall value of a battery? Let‘s find out…
18650 is a 3.6V cylindrical Li-Ion cell. 18650 has no memory effect
(distinguish between digital memory effect) and longer storage life than NiMH
battery cells. 18650 is light weight and has a high energy density. It is in effect
perfect for building batteries for laptop and other portable power devices.
The additional technical specifications for the 18650 battery cell include:
Nominal Voltage Average 3.7 V – the concept of nominal voltage is that
voltage range exists depending on the number of cells in the battery.
Nominal Capacity – 2200 mAh (above 2200 the stability of lithium based cells
is called into question)
Max. Charging Current – 2.4 Amps Max.
Max. Discharging Current – 4.6 Amps max.
Dimensions (DxH) 18.3 mm (Max 18.4) x 64.9 mm (Max 65.1)
Weight 46.5 g (1.64 oz)
Internal Impedance: less or equal to 90 ohms
Cycle Performance is 80% of initial capacity at 300 cycles
