Laptop Battery Life Preservation

In order to prevent the degradation of your laptop’s battery and preserve its ability to charge and discharge, follow these simple tips:

  • Do NOT leave your laptop plugged in at all times.
  • Turn off and unplug the laptop when not in use.
  • Discharge the battery once a month by unplugging the laptop from power and leaving the laptop on.
    • To prevent the laptop from entering Sleep Mode, type ‘Edit power plan’ into the Window search bar and then press Enter.
    • Change the option for ‘Put the computer to sleep:’ under ‘On Battery’ to ‘Never.’
    • Wait for the laptop to turn off and then you may plug it into power and reset the option for ‘Put the computer to sleep:’ under ‘On Battery’ to the desired time.
