Battrey problems Hi..I have a battery problem on my laptop dell latitude 100L . When I go on the taskbar and point the pointer on the battery icon to see how much time I have left. The estimate time is not accurate.Can you please tell me how can I fix the problem ?Thanks...

Answers :

You need to recalibrate the battery. Follow the following steps.

1. Insert adapter and charge the laptop to 100%.
2. Remove the adapter and let the battery discharge completely.
3. Recharge the laptop to 100%.

Now your timing will be accurate.
Hope that helps
Battery life estimates vary in accuracy, and are based on algorythms comparing the output of the battery over time. As batteries age, this becomes less and less accurate. Since this is a 100L, if using the original battery, the battery has exceeded it's useful life and will likely have a short functional battery life. (I have an Inspiron 700m with it's original battery, and I get maybe 30 minutes from it, the meter will say 40 to 50 minutes remaining when it dies) Due to the design of a portable battery, which maintains a high output till exhausted, older batteries with short lives don't aid in battery time estimates.
\015\012In short, for a accurate battery life prediction, replace the battery.
