There is no telling how long your HP OMNIBOOK 2100-F1600W battery and adapter will last when you first open your new laptop. While you excitedly un-wrap all the components to get the system started up you probably don’t spare many thoughts on ways to care for your battery or to get maximum usage from it, but you would do well to try out these few tips to optimize its lifespan. While all batteries have a limited number of charge and discharge cycles, you can optimize your usage to get the maximum life out of them. The most important of these would be to use the genuine product adapter so the next time you travel, make sure to take your original brand adapter along instead of borrowing a different one from a hotel or a friend. The same goes for replacements. If you are travelling for an extended period without your laptop, remove the battery from your laptop and store it in a cool dry place until it is needed again.
The power options you set on your laptop will also have a direct effect on your battery for HP OMNIBOOK 2100-F1600W because screen brightness, open applications, power settings and wireless buttons all draw maximum capacity from your battery. When you reduce the speed of your processor it will also reduce the supply of power from your battery, so it is important to apply these changes when you setup your laptop. It is a worthwhile exercise to do even if you have been running your laptop for a while as you will still be able to increase the longevity of your battery.
You may have noticed that your HP adapter gets warm after some time of operation, and while this is normal during laptop operation and charging, you should not leave your battery to run on constant charge, especially when it is not in use. It’s always a good idea to unplug your HP adapter from the wall when your laptop is not in use to let it cool down because over time the adapter will become warmer with increased usage, and a very hot adapter could be a potential problem. This is usually an indication that something is wrong with the adapter and it may need to be replaced. By following these overall tips you can ensure that you get the most out of your products and enjoy trouble free operation.
