Sony VGP-BPS5 Laptop Battery Life Tips
19 Dec 2009
Does "limited charge cycles" have you worrying about replacing Sony VGP-BPS5 battery often? Lithium Ion batteries have anywhere from 300-600 charge cycles which is 2-4 years of use for the average user.
To get maximum use out of your lithium ion vgp-bps5a battery and do not want any worries about running out of battery power? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Most important of all : Matching the battery to its charger/AC Adapter.

Make sure the power saving features are enabled when using the laptop on battery power. These features may be disabled manually for many laptops if you absolutely need the maximum speed setting for a task, don't forget to turn power saving back on.

If you are not going to use the Sony VGP-BPS5 battery pack for a long period of time then try to store it in a cool dry place at about a 40% charge level. Do not freeze! Don't forget to exercise your laptop battery as well.

When using the battery, try to charge it as often as possible as soon as you can.

Keep it cool: Don't forget your battery in your vehicle on a hot summer day.

Don't charge and discharge the Sony VGP-BPS5 battery removing from the computer。

You should consider buying a spare pack only if you find yourself running out of battery power often, don't buy one to have "just in case". Lithium Ion packs start to age as soon as they're produced and can irreversibly lose around 20% capacity per year even when unused. (note storage tip above to minimize this). You can get more items from the psot:

1. Recharge the Sony VGP-BPS5 battery as the circle more than once per month to make the management of capacity reach its best status,and prolong Sony VGP-BPS5 battery useful life。
2. Remove the Sony VGP-BPS5 battery when don't use if for long time,or the currency will be lost and the cell will be damaged。
3. If the capacity is low in current,CPU will be in electricity-saving model and Sony VGP-BPS5 battery can not be charged.In this case,take off the Sony VGP-BPS5 battery and fit on to rouse the CPU.The battery can be charged then。
