Battery Tips


  • Your new battery comes in a discharged condition and must be charged 8-12 hours before use. Upon initial use (or after a prolonged storage period) the battery may require three to four charge/discharge cycles before achieving maximum capacity.

  • When charging the battery for the first time your device may indicate that charging is complete after just 10 or 15 minutes. This is a normal phenomenon with rechargeable batteries. Simply remove the battery from the device and repeat the charging procedure.

  • New batteries are hard for your device to charge; they have never been fully charged and are therefore "unformed". Sometimes your device's charger will stop charging a new battery before it is fully charged. If this happens, simply remove the battery from your device and then re-insert it. The charge cycle should begin again. This may happen several times during your first battery charge.

  • To discharge, simply run your device under the battery's power until it shuts down or until you get a low battery warning. Then recharge the battery.

  • Occasionally, BIOS updating (for laptop only) is required to make the battery work normally on your device.

  • If the battery will not be in use for a month or longer, it is recommended that it be removed from the device and stored in a cool, dry, clean place.

  • A charged battery will eventually lose its charge if unused. It may therefore be necessary to 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.

  • Don't leave the battery in the device with the AC adapter plugged in unless you're charging it will extend your battery life.

  • Do not short-circuit. Do not expose the battery to moisture or rain. Keep battery away from fire or other sources of extreme heat.
