My Dell Inspiron powered by i5 is around 1.5 years old and it has started to show some problems. Of the many problems, one of the most annoying problem is that the battery is not charging. My laptop works fine until it is connected to the power supply but goes dark after power outbreak. What can be done in order to fix this?

Your laptop condition is very good, but charging problem is a great problem. If Your laptop warranty card so go to your laptop customer care. If Your warranty is expired, so you go to a nearest laptop engineer and show him and tell him your problem, I think your all problem he solved.

Considering your laptop goes off as soon as there is a power outbreak, there could be a problem with your adapter. Check if power goes through your adapter or is it faulty. Normally there is a green light on the adapter which comes on when connected to power. If it does not lights up, it is evident that it is faulty and you should replace it.

Also this might be as a result of a dead battery because it can not keep charge. However, first check if your adapter works then the problem is with your battery.

The life of a fully charged battery will depend on how you use it or how you use the device. If you play games on your laptop, it will surely drain the battery faster than normal. But if you’re only doing some typing like in Microsoft Office Word or browsing the internet, the battery is consumed at a normal rate.

But if you want to know the life of the battery in general, here’s an explanation about the lifespan of a laptop battery. The total lifespan of a laptop’s battery or any other battery depends on how you use your computer or device. The more often you charge, the faster its lifespan will decrease.

All rechargeable batteries have limited lifespan and its average lifespan is determined by the cycle count which is then equivalent to charge and discharge. In a laptop computer, the average lifespan of a Li-Ion battery is about 700 to 800 cycles and normally lasts around two to three years (2 – 3 years).

According to Apple, you can allow your laptop to be connected to the charger even when the battery is full. This will not damage the battery. In this state, the laptop will run on AC power instead of battery. But you need to let your laptop run on battery at least once a month to allow the battery to discharge normally.

The idea here is simple: when the battery is charging and it reaches the full charge capacity, there is a mechanism in the laptop’s power supply that will stop the charging of the battery and shifts to AC power. When the laptop is running on AC power, the battery will remain at its level without discharging therefore preventing the cycle count from decreasing and prolonging its life.

To extend the life of your battery, try following this method to save the cost of buying new batteries. On the other hand, if the battery is not charging, remove the battery then connect the charger. Try to turn on your laptop. If the laptop turns on, you have a broken battery. Just replace the battery with a new one.
