Ways to prolong lifespan of netbook laptop & PDA phone battery
Posted on 2010-08-21
I'm enquiring abt prolonging battery lifespan, not minimizing power usage
I have a multitouch netbook that uses polymer battery, a Motorola DEXT PDA
that comes with Lithium battery (I think) & Samsung i780 PDA (comes with
2 Lithium batteries)
Is it true that if I uses till the batteries are fully drained, then only charge it,
this will prolong the lifespan of the batteries?
If I left the battery in the netbook (or a laptop) while the power is plugged
in, this will shorten the lifespan of the battery - is this true?
One advice I got was to remove the batteries when AC power is plugged
in (for netbook & Laptop) unless I want to charge a drained battery or when
I'm on the move & there's no AC power, then only plug in the battery : this
will prolong battery lifespan
Are there any software or tools that I can use to enhance battery lifetime?
I'm asking all these questions as some of the PDA & polymer batteries are rather
costly & getting a compatible batteries for PDA have been known to cause
high temperature of my HTC & Nokia PDAs mobile phones & damaged them
