Looks like I need a new battery for my laptop. I’ve used it almost everyday, for at least 5hrs/day, since 2008 (told yah I am married to it), now I can only use it for 15mins. It can’t be helped. Batteries (like vtech batteries) are meant to lose charge after a period of time. Should have taken extra extra care. I thought it was best to just keep it inside.
I read somewhere that this is how you can prolong battery lifespan:
- discharge it first before removing it from your laptop and then store it in a cool dry place
- use the battery only when necessary, otherwise use the power adapter
I inquired at Sony Centre (Gateway branch) last week, they cost pretty much around 5K-10K! Oh noooo! Too expensive! Good thing I don’t bring it anywhere else, I’ll have to keep using the power adapter until I have enough funds to get a new battery.
