Take care of your battery! Now!!

16Feb11

Lithium-ion batteries!

• Do not let it run out completely all the time. Full discharge puts a lot of strain on the battery
• Do not keep a Li-ion battery fully charged all the time, either. If you don’t use your battery it might suffer from capacity loss
• Keep your battery in cooler temperatures. Hot hot heat is not good for it
• If you’re gonna store your battery, leave 40%-50% charge in and store it in a cool place (i.e. fridge).

I know, it’s hard to break old habits (I leave my laptop plugged in far too often), but taking care of your battery means better, longer juice.
