Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Have an acer aspire 5002WLMi laptop bought second hand. no manual. old battery. If I bought a new battery, how long of a charge would I get.
Is it ok to continually use my adapter/recharge cord when I use my laptop or will it wreck my battery. Right now at 91% my battery only has about 20 minutes.
I use the adapter plugged in all day long, it will not do any damage to your battery. You can leave it plugged in a work as long as you want. Just make sure you get the lithium ion battery as that is the latest..in fact I would get it off of the Acer home page if possible. As for as how long a battery last, depends on the usage and how many times you recharge it. Lithium are good for over 1000 recharges so again depends on your usage. Its the recharge that wears it down. Hope this helps. Pls rate this solution.
