I have a Dell laptop that has gone thru four batteries in the last year. I only replace them with Dell factory batteries so I know that it can not be the batteries. Is it possible for the laptop to be defective and cause the batteries to short out or burn out?
Dell Laptop Shorting Out Batteries?
Usually batteries wear off fast for two reasons, 1. Use them until they die off 2. Improper electricity connection. For the first reason, you should a) charge a newly bought battery for at least 12 hours b) don't use your PC on battery mode at below 10% capacity frequently.
For the second reason, check the effective voltage gradient of your charger. Buying a new charger may help you in this case.
