Make sure that your laptop has a lithium-ion battery. Look at this characteristic in the user manual or on the box from the computer. The manufacturer designates the battery type by Li-Ion.
A new laptop typically has an uncharged battery or charged partially. Li-Ion system does not have the “memory effect” characteristic of earlier production devices. Also, the next generation lithium-polymer (Li-Poly) batteries are not subject to this action. But in order not to bring down the system, it is necessary to properly charge the laptop for the first time.
Not including the computer, connect the charger to it and leave to charge for the first time overnight. So you are guaranteed to get the most charged battery. If you don’t hold back and turn on your laptop, after 10-20 minutes the first charge, the battery icon can show 100% readiness. Turn off your computer, remove your battery, wait a few seconds. Insert the battery into place. Connect your laptop to your charger. When charged, the battery can heat up heavily.
In order for the battery of a new laptop to reach maximum capacity, it must be “trained”. After overnight charging, unplug the power supply from the grid and work on the computer offline until the battery is fully discharged. Overnight, reconnect your computer to the network. Do the manipulation data several times (3—5) to develop the battery well.
Keep in mind that the new battery recharges and discharges faster. Real time on the computer offline at the start may not match the characteristics specified by the manufacturer. Don’t rush to the store: through several full charges, the battery can easily withstand the specified time.
