How long should I charge my new battery for?
When you first receive your laptop battery charge it fully for at least 6-8 hours and then discharge the battery fully by using your laptop unplugged from the mains until the battery runs down completely.
Repeat these steps 3 times to ensure your Laptop Battery will give you the maximum performance.
If you regularly use your Laptop on mains power for extended periods, removing the battery from your Laptop during these periods will extend the usable life of your laptop battery.
