Why does your computer lose battery life while plugged in?
The computer does not always charge whiten its plugged in. Sometimes it is in standby mode even if it is plugged in.
Should you remove your fully charged battery from a laptop if plugged into an ac outlet in order to extend the batteries life?
According to manufacturers, you should never remove the battery when the computer is plugged in. Removing the battery does not extend battery life because all batteries have "shelf" life and are no good after a certain time. Today's batteries actually will last longer if you keep it in the laptop.
There is a power icon on the taskbar. It shows whether the computer is plugged into the mains or on battery power. If you hover your cursor over the power icon, while it is running on battery power, it will show as a percentage how much battery life is left (along with an estimate of how much time you have left before the battery dies).
Every motherboard includes a battery, as well as several other components. The battery is there because it powers the computer. Most batteries have between 2 and 4 hours of life before they have to be plugged in.
No, but leaving it plugged in all the time can decrease the battery life. You should run on battery once a month.
make sure your usb cable is plugged in to the computer and click on your ipod icon and see if the battery life is full if that doesnt work contact the apple store.
No. Leave it plugged in. Each discharge and recharge of the battery is a cycle and will reduce the efficacy of the battery. The battery will still age and reduce but a good computer will keep it trickle charged when it is at full capacity preserving or extending its life a bit vs full discharge and recharge every day.
The iMac does not run off a battery nor does it contain a battery. It runs strictly off AC power and must be plugged in.
yes; if you leave a phone plugged in for too long, then the battery begins to overheat and will ultimately lose its life, thus giving you a shorter battery life.
Whatever the lap-top - if it's being used at home, connected to the mains - it's better if you remove the battery altogether. This will not only stop the computer trying to charge the battery - but also lengthen the battery's life.
How do you change the battery in a hayward pro logic aqua pod wireless remote aql2-pod for the pool?
The battery is not replaceable... much like an iPhone... they are designed to provide a life of approx. 5 years. If the battery does not hold a charge, you can still continue to use the remote while plugged into the base charger...
What does plugged USB port may shorten battery life mean I have a tablet and this message comes up when I get under 15 percent battery?
USB devices take power from the device they are plugged into to operate. The message is a warning warning suggesting you unplug the USB devices to conserve the power of the tablet's battery.
Generally dell laptops have a battery life of 8-10 hours unplugged and have a life span of 2-3 years. a desktop has an even longer lifespan because it can only operate while connected to a power source such as an outlet.

This can reduce the life of the power adapter. The main problem with leaving the adaptor plugged into a laptop and power is it can shorten the battery life. This is especially true if your laptop has a Ni Cad battery. When you require the battery for 1 to 2 hours, it may only give you less than 15 minutes. While Lithium batteries are less prone to these problems, their life can still be reduced… Read More
When using a laptop leaving it plugged in when the battery is fully charged does do some slight damage to the battery life. However this is minium but if you do thiscosistantly you will notice your battery does not last as long. Good question
Leaving a battery to charge when it's not necessary wastes your charge cycles. Every battery has a certain amount of times it can be charged, the more charge cycles are used the life starts to slowly decrease on the battery. So overtime you will notice your batttery's life will become shorter and shorter. If you do this often enough, you can go from a 3 hour batter to a 30 second battery, and at that… Read More
Yes; A. it can overheat B. it wastes the battery, which means you have to charge it more, which takes the battery life away, which then means it must always be plugged in
If you're using processor intensive applications such as pro audio and video workstations software, you should definitely have your computer plugged in. That also applies to when you're updating your computer's software. Ideally, you'll want neither to leave your computer plugged in all the time nor run it on batteries until it dies. To optimise battery life, you should always disconnect your charger once your batteries are fully charged, and charge your batteries all the… Read More

"A Dell battery warranty is for one year, which is less time than the computer warranty. Dell acknowledges that the battery life is shorter than the life of the machine and falls into the ""consumable"" category."
To save your battery life on the Samsung Ace while using the internet, try closing down any background applications that are running.
Cell phones with lithium polymer or lithium-ion batteries actually have better overall battery life if kept charged. Top it off every night. The old rules do not apply to the new batteries. In fact, discharging them completely will shorten the life. Keep it cool. Heat destroys rechargeable batteries, and lithium ion worst of all. (Non-rechargeable lithium, on the other hand, has high heat resistance. Go figure.) Expect your phone battery to lose about 20% of… Read More
My laptop dies as soon as I take it off charge so I can only use it when it is plugged which defeats half the point of a laptop Do I need to buy a new battery because I really don't want to?
this happends to me too. i replace old battery with a new one and battery life is very good
if the battery won't recharge or won't hold a significant charge, replace it. the decay of battery life over time is normal, and replacement batteries are relatively inexpensive. Check to make sure, however, that it's the battery that's failed, and not the charging system on the computer.
Does the DS have better battery life if you plug it in while playing or if you only charge it when the battery is low?
You ant to charge the lithium Ion battery before the battery reaches a 20 percent charge, so when the light goes red.Charge it while you are playing so you can sit there with no battery loss
12-cell battery is the nicest i have every heard of but there may be nicer. basically the more "cells' the longer the battery life. hope this helps
This could be due to a number of reasons. 1. Your power supply became unplugged or battery life died. Check to make sure it is plugged into an outlet and the battery still has about 20% left. 2. DVI or VGI cable came loose from the monitor. This would stop the monitor's functioning. 3. You bumped one of the F keys on the top of your keyboard that may of disabled your display.
It is not good for the long term health of a battery to keep it charging longer than needed. It is recommended that devices like cell phones are completely de-charged once every 14 days to preserve battery life. The longer it is plugged in, the more energy it will draw - so there is also a downside to the environment and your electric bills if you over charge!
Your screen is likely sleeping to save a little battery life while it's not in use. To adjust this setting, open Energy Saver in your System Preferences. Additionally, on a laptop, there is usually an option for different settings if the laptop is plugged in to the wall using its power cord and adapter.

If you remove the positive battery post on your 2003 dodge ram ttruck will it reset your computerbrain If so will it come to life or do you need a computer to reset it?
Unhooking the battery will clear the short term memory in the computer. Simply unhooking the battery should not do anything that requires any other reset.
Yes, it will :)
Why wont 91 olds 98 start after battery recharged a mechanic said computer needs recoding is this correct?
Sounds good to me if it ain`t got the star wars computer in it, it may well be the starter. Just for the life of tings usually with no computer you "bang on the starter" to free up the computer inside the starter. You bang on it while your buddy cranks on her, good luck. darn computers!
Yes it requires a battery If you cant find one the back up power cell from an A-wing's nav computer will work
Just let the computer run on battery power until its completely drained, then recharge it fully. This is called a "recalibration" and can increase battery performance. However, if you want to completely "extend" battery life, you could just get an external source, like a case with an extended battery, a device to charge gadgets anywhere you go, etc etc.

No one cares
Manufactures don't recommend to that because it causes decrease of battery life.
All batteries have what is called "shelf life" That is the measure of how long the battery will keep a charge while sitting. Every battery will discharge over a period of time. It just depends upon the battery and the conditions of storage.
A six-volt battery would not boot the computer. We suspect that you mean a six-cell battery. In any case, the battery life of a computer depends on the processor, the drives, the temperature (how much the fan runs), the age and condition of the battery, how many programs are running, and a variety of other variables including the kind of work being done. In theory, you could assume a roughly 50% increase over a 4-cell… Read More
For most devices, yes. There is an issue called overcharge where power is being stored with nowhere to go. Keeping your phone plugged in too long can damage the internal parts of the battery, and eventually leads to less battery life and internal memory problems. One way to prevent this is to cycle the battery several times: unplug it, run it down to where it's dead or almost there, charge all the way (but not… Read More
How do you find out how much battery life you have left while waiting to charge laptop battery for first time?
At the right hand corner, there is usually a little bar that shows how much battery there is. You charge your laptop, without clicking the bar, move the mouse to it and a little bubble will say how much life it has.
