Dell studio 1535 laptop maintenance tips for longer battery life

Dell studio 1535 laptop battery maintenance tips

1. Give It A Breather. If you have just shut down your Dell studio 1535 laptop, give it 30 seconds before you start it up again. This ensures that the hard drive has spun down, and is no subjected to sudden switching on and off.

2.  Power Management Tools. Every laptop computer has options that allow them to make changes to the power management tools. In a Windows laptop, check under “Control Panel” and you will find the power options. You will be asked to identify the type of computer that you are using. It is important to choose “Laptop” from the drop down menu. Each type of notebook PC will bring up a different option that will save power.

3. Battery Storage If you do not use your laptop for extended periods of time – a week or more – remove the battery pack from the laptop, but only after discharging it fully. The batteries should be stored in a cool dry place, removed from heat, humidity and dust as well as metal objects.

5. Keep Your Battery Healthy. Before the first use, charge the Dell latitude e6400 batteries for 12 hours or the minimum charge time, as mentioned in the manual. For daily use, charge the battery to capacity, then run the laptop on battery power until it is completely drained or almost drained.

6. Don’t leave your battery unused for long periods of time. Even if you use AC power most of the time, use the battery regularly to keep it in good condition. Switch off your AC adapter when the laptop is not in use. This prevents overcharging.

7. To extend battery life, you can try decreasing the LCD brightness while using your notebook. You can activate the ‘Standby’ and ‘Hibernation’ power-saving modes, too, for better battery life.
