Com tractar una bateria de portàtil

Després d’un any i dos mesos de funcionament, la bateria del meu Acer Travelmate 250 em va abandonar. Després d’intentar contactar amb diferents proveïdors d’informàtica sense èxit, vaig fer una comanda a Europarts Distriberica i després d’onze dies d’espera ja la tinc a la ma, la nova bateria BTP-58A1 per al portàtil.

Ara bé quan se’m planteja quelcom important, com l’he de tractar per a optimizar-ne el rendiment? He trobat un web força interessant que explica quatre coses que tindré en compte:

The Do’s and Don’ts of Battery Use

Battery Do’s:

  • Fully charge/discharge battery up to 4 cycles before achieving full capacity of a new battery
  • Fully discharge and then fully charge the battery every two to three weeks for battery conditions
  • Run the device under the battery’s power until it shuts down or until you get a low battery warning. Then recharge the battery as instructed in the user’s manual
  • Remove from the device and stored in a cool, dry, clean place if the battery will not be in use for a month or longer
  • Recharge the battery after a storage period
  • Ensure maximum performance of the battery by optimizing the device’s power management features. Refer to the manual for further instructions

Battery Don’ts:

  • Do not short-circuit. A short-circuit may cause severe damage to the battery
  • Do not drop, hit or otherwise abuse the battery as this may result in the exposure of the cell contents, which are corrosive
  • Do not expose the battery to moisture or rain
  • Keep battery away from fire or other sources of extreme heat. Do not incinerate. Exposure of battery to extreme heat may result in an explosion
