Calibrating Your Battery

Your Dell laptop battery is specifically calibrated to be used in a certain manner, to ensure proper operation and the longest lifespan possible. There are certain tricks that you can use to make sure that your battery is being used as intended. It's important to note that laptop batteries should not be completely discharged unless you're performing a calibration. A complete discharge is when the battery is used until it is completely empty. This can put stress onto the battery, and in some cases, damage it. Laptops have their own internal gauge to display how much energy is being stored, but that gauge can become inaccurate in older batteries. You can calibrate the battery by performing a complete discharge, and then performing a complete full charge. These processes should not be interrupted during the calibration sequence. With modern batteries, you may not need to do this more than once or twice a year, but it helps your laptop to both get a more accurate read on the battery, and for the battery itself to get a proper charge. Uncalibrated laptop batteries may give low readings when power is still available, for example, but a calibration can solve the problem.
