Answers :

Battery life on a portable system is a contentious issue, and manufacturer's marketing of battery life doesn't help the cause a bit.

There are several factors that will determine the ACTUAL battery life of your system versus the ADVERTISED battery life.

    \015\012
  1. Battery type and watt/hour rating. There are 2 types of portable batteries, Lithium Ion (LION) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NMHD) The LION battery is longer lasting and has a more consistant power output than NMHD batteries, and is more expensive. The watt hour capability is based on the number of cells in the battery (normally 4, 6, 9 and sometimes 12 cell batteries are available) The higher the watt hour rating (more cells) the longer it lasts. LION batteries are more expensive and higher watt hour ones are more expensive. So if you took the best price on the battery you bought, or if you got a system on SALE/good deal, you may have gotten the lesser battery in the DEAL.

  3. How the system is used on battery and power management settings. When manufacturers advertise battery life, they use the mose economical use of power configuration to get that possible life. LCD brightness to minimum, nothing running inoptical drive, minimum accesses of HDD, system running in cold room to minimize fan operation and essentially doing just enough with the system to keep it from going too sleep. They turn off every feature that can be turned off, the most powerful brand new battery available, and the "LIFE" they get in that senario, is the one they advertise. So, if you are playing a DVD, with all power management off and the LCD up full bright, your battery life may be less than 10% of the advertised life.

  5. Age/number of recharge cycles of the battery. Battery warranties are generally 1 year by most major manufacturers. This is because they consider the battery a consumable item and it gets used up. The normal battery has a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. Some last longer, some don't and are replaced under warranty. If the battery is not a year old, you can likely get it replaced by the manufacturer of the system under warranty.
  6. \015\012
  7. If you buy a replacement battery, get a LION battery with at least 9 cells. It will be more expensive, but you get what you pay for in batteries.
