Lithium-based batteries

  • store them at about 40% charged state
  • never store them fully depleted/charged
  • keep them cool and dry, deeply frozen is best as long as it is dry
  • the battery lasts longer with partial rather than full discharges
  • avoid charging if the battery is nearly full
  • never expose your laptop and/or battery to excessive heat (car parked in sun)
  • take the battery/s out when running on AC
