Upgrading the laptops battery maximum capacity


Hello John J. Odonnell,

     Well, it absolutely depends on your laptop.Maybe, you can somehow upgrade its battery life span, or you cannot extend its battery life span. Like I said, it all depends on your laptop. Well, you cannot upgrade your battery literally, but you can buy another battery which is more powerful than yours. For example, if your battery is only 3-celled, you can buy a 6-celled battery to improve battery life of your laptop. That way it could improve your laptop's battery life span. However, you can only buy batteries that are compatible to your laptop that is why I said that it all depends. Make sure it is compatible Check on your manufacturer's site. There should be an article there about your laptop. However, you should be aware of its price. Batteries are somehow expensive. They usually cost half the price of your laptop. 

Well, you did not say what operating system you are using, and you generally stated it as a laptop so I can assume that it a Windows Laptop because if it was a Mac, you should have said it. Anyway, your battery's life span is found at your task bar. At the lower right corner of your task bar, there should be a detailed info about your battery's life.

Hope it helps.

Upgrading the laptops battery maximum capacity



Average run time is about 1 1/2 hours to 3 1/2 hours depending on what applications you are running. You can determine your laptops run time when you know how many watts your laptop computer uses and the total power capacity your notebook battery has. Here is how you can calculate this yourself.Battery capacity can also be measured in Watt-Hours. Watt-Hours are calculated by multiplying Volts x Milliamperes. Here is an example:

14.8 Volts X 4060mAh (4000mAh is equal to 4.06 Amperes).
Is also equivalent to:
14.8 x 4.06 = 60.09 Watt-Hours
Watt-Hours measure the energy which powers one watt for one hour. If your laptop runs at 20 watts, your run time will be: 3.004 hours (60.09 Watt-Hours / 20.0 watts Laptop pc power use)

Functions that require more power will deplete your laptop battery faster. Viewing a DVD or using your CD player to play and record music are power intensive functions and will consume power at a faster rate. Most laptops have a power management control panel where power use can be reduced while on battery power, such as reducing the brightness of your LCD screen. External batteries can also be purchased to provided extended power.
