How Do I Properly Charge My New Laptop Battery?

New Lithium-Ion laptop batteries are typically in a 20-70% discharged state and require you to fully charge the battery before your first use. The chemistry behind Lithium-ion is better served by partial discharges before charging as opposed to a full discharge, meaning its preferred to recharge your laptop battery before it drains all the way. There is no harm in recharging computer batteries after a partial discharge.

Laptop Battery use tips:

  • Lithium Ions can be ruined if the voltage drops below a certain level, avoid letting your notebook battery drain completely and repeatedly.
  • If you plan on not-using the notebook battery for a month or longer then fully charge the laptop battery, then store it in a cool place. The laptop battery will lose its charge while stored and will need to be re-charged before you begin using it again
  • After storing a laptop battery and re-charging, it may only re-charge for 10-15 minutes and then claim the notebook battery is fully charged, this is a common phenomenon in rechargeable laptop batteries, to overcome this simply remove the laptop battery and then re-insert it to initiate the charging process again
