How is your battery condition?

Fortunately, there is a quick tip that can help you maintain your battery life: by calibrating your battery every month or two.

Calibrating Battery

  1. Charge the battery until it’s fully charged
  2. Keep the fully charged state for two hours or more
  3. Disconnect power adapter
  4. Use your battery until it goes to sleep (empty state)
  5. Leave it for five hours or longer
  6. Connect the power adapter and charge the battery until it’s full
