Apple Battery indicator light function

Learn about the location and new functions of the battery indicator lights on MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) and MacBook Pro (Late 2008) and later computers. These computers use a new, more convenient location for the battery indicator lights, when compared with previous models.

Products Affected
MacBook Pro battery (17-inch, Mid 2009), MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2009), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009), MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009), MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2009), MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008)

The battery indicator lights are located along the left side of the computer. This allows for quick and easy verification of the Apple A1060 Apple A1079 battery's charge status while the computer remains solidly in-place.

When you press the battery indicator light button, the corresponding flashes (or pattern of flashes) presents either the current charge status or a diagnostic status.

The chart below describes the behaviors you may see when you press the Apple A1045 battery indicator light button.

    Battery indicator light behavior Description and instructions
  • The first LED flashes for 5 seconds. The battery has not yet been charged to what's required for a single indicator light. Ensure the MagSafe adapter is properly connected.
  • LEDs representing the current charge flash 5 times, then fade. The battery is charging, but does not have a full charge.
  • All LEDs flash 5 times. The Apple A1078 battery needs to be replaced. Please schedule a service appointment with either an Apple Retail Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider.
  • LEDs flash from left to right and back again 5 times. The battery is not installed, or is not recognized. Verify that the battery is installed correctly.

Note: Once the MagSafe power adapter is first connected to the computer, the MagSafe's LED glows. An amber light indicates the iBook G4 Battery is charging. A green light indicates the battery is fully charged, or not installed correctly in the computer.

Tips for maximizing apple battery charge

You can take some easy steps to prolong the charge of your Apple Macbook battery portable's .

Here are some simple settings and steps you can take to get the most out of your MacBook, MacBook Pro 13 inch battery , MacBook Air, iBook G4 or PowerBook G4 battery.

Optimize your battery settings in Energy Saver preferences

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Energy Saver.
  3. Click Show Details.
  4. Choose Battery or Battery Power from the "Settings for" pop-up menu.
  5. Choose Longest or Better Battery Life from the Optimize Energy Settings pop-up menu.

These settings will put the hard disk to sleep whenever possible and reduce the computer's microprocessor performance in order to maximize its Apple A1175 battery life. If you are using processor-intensive applications, you may wish to change these settings so the microprocessor performance is no longer reduced.

Set your screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level

Press the F1 (dimmer) and F2 (brighter) keys to dim the screen until the brightness is as low as possible and the screen is still comfortable to look at.

Turn off unused features and technologies.

Just as you would turn off the lights in an unoccupied room, turning off unused features and technologies can help maximize your Apple A1185 battery life, too. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Eject CDs and DVDs you're no longer using. Every so often, the optical drive spins up to read CDs or DVDs. This consumes a small amount of power.
  • Disconnect peripherals when you're not using them. Connected peripherals, such as printers and digital cameras, can draw power from your Apple iBook G4 12 inch Battery even when you're not using them.
  • Shut down any runaway applications

If you're not in a location where you need to use AirPort or Bluetooth, you can turn them off to save A1008 A1012 power.

To turn off AirPort:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

My shoppingg experience buying Dell inspiron E1505 accessories

Dell-Inspiron%20E1505-laptop

Two month ago, my Dell E1505 battery failed after its 1 year warranty. So I should buy a new one for my coming holiday in Hawaii. Now I will never shopping in Ebay or Amazon. As you know you buy someone there, and no guarantee of the product, also the money refund is impossible. And you can not cancel the order. So I decide use my paypal to buy the Dell inspiron E1505 battery.

I searched the Inspiron E1505 Battery in google and found search resault. Then I click some of them, after long time comparison I order a battery from http://www.discount-laptopbattery.com as Its price and 30 days money back and one year quality warranty. After 7days I recevied the battery and below is my battery using experience:

I was getting three red flashes and one green flash continuously on the battery light on the lower right side of the lid which according to the manual means defective battery which turned out to be true. I trashed the cheap Latitude D820 Battery (which I noticed was rated at 5200 ma vs the rating of 7200 on the Amazon battery)because I did not save the receipt. I am thrilled with this battery which is giving me about 3 hours before needing a charge, and charges to 100% overnight with no problem.

It works well with my 1505. I got 4 + hours out of this per charge. Saw some other people having problem with recognizing the batteries. When I was doing research for purchasing a replacement Latitude D620 Battery, I came across a lot of discussions online about Dell laptop not recognizing batteries. I wonder if that is a common issue with Dell. Luckily, mine has no problem. :) Everything is good. As long as it can last 1 year or so, It would be worth the money spent.

Owned for 5+ months. I am pleased with this Latitude D830 Battery I was glad to find it at a price much lower than Dell was selling it. It was a great buy. Product came right when I needed it and has worked great for me! Good battery life.

In all The battery is compatible and works well with the Vostro 1000. Instructions are confusing. I simply installed and followed good battery practices - completely charged the battery, completely drained the battery, then repeated.

In the end I saw some New batteries in this online shopping are in 35% price discount as the Merry Christams Day coming. I list them below with the brands:

How to Calibrate laptop battery

After using for months, the battery get weak and cant fully discharge. Also in this situation the laptop battery's 76% even less in work.Now we need to Calibrate laptop battery. I found a note about recondition laptop battery from Dell laptop battery manufacturers handbook. Surprisingly, it offered some really helpful laptop battery calibration and maintenance tips, which Id like to share with you:

Calibrating a Battery Pack

When to Calibrate laptop battery
Even if a battery pack is heavily used, it should not be necessary to calibrate it more than once a month. It is not necessary to calibrate a new Dell GK479 pack before first use. However, make sure that the battery pack is fully charged, especially if it is the only power source.

Calibrate Dell 1721 Battery ack under the following conditions:
? When the battery status display seems inaccurate.
? When you observe a significant change in normal batteryrun time.
? When the battery pack has not been used for one monthor more.

How to Calibrate laptop battery
To Calibrate Inspiron 1501 Battery pack, you must fully charge, fully discharge, and then fully recharge the battery pack.

Charging the Battery Pack

Fully charge the Sony VGP-BPS8 battery pack when the notebook is in use. To charge the battery pack:
1. Insert the battery pack into the notebook.
2. Connect the notebook to external power through an AC adapter. (The battery light turns on.)
The battery light turns off when the battery pack is fully charged.

Discharging the Battery Pack

Disabling Hibernation
To fully discharge the battery pack, disable Hibernation temporarily.
To disable Hibernation:
? Select the Power Meter icon on the taskbar or access Power Options > Hibernate, and clear the Enable Hibernate support check box.

Discharging the battery Pack
After the battery light turns off, which indicates that the battery pack is fully charged, begin discharging the VGP-BPS8 VGP-BPS9 pack.

    To fully discharge the Sony battery pack:
  1. Select the Power Meter icon on the taskbar, or select Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options > Power Schemes.
  2. Write down the 3 settings in the Plugged In column and the settings in the Running on Batteries column, so you can reset them after calibration.
  3. Select the drop-down lists and set all 6 options in both columns to Never.
  4. Select the OK button.
  5. Disconnect the notebook from the external power source, but do not turn off the notebook.
  6. Run the notebook on battery power until the battery pack is fully discharged. The battery light begins to blink when the battery pack has discharged to a low-battery condition. When the battery pack is fully discharged, the power/Standby light turns off and the notebook shuts down.
    Recharging the Toshiba laptop Battery Pack
  1. Connect the notebook to external power and keep the notebook connected until the battery pack is fully recharged and the battery light turns off. ?You can use the notebook while the battery pack is recharging, but the battery pack will charge faster if the notebook is turned off.
  2. Select the Power Meter icon on the taskbar or select Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > PowerOptions > Power Schemes.
  3. Reenter the 3 settings you wrote down for the 3 options in the Plugged In column and for the 3 options in the Running on Batteries column.
  4. Select the OK button.

Now you already Calibrate laptop battery

What is solar battery cell?

What is solar battery cell?

Let me view the introduce from the wikipedia

A solar cell or photovoltaic cell is a device that converts solar energy into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. Photovoltaics is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells as solar energy. Sometimes the term solar cell is reserved for devices intended specifically to capture energy from sunlight as laptop from Acer BATCL50L , while the term photovoltaic cell is used when the source is unspecified. Assemblies of cells are used to make solar modules, which may in turn be linked in photovoltaic arrays.

Simple explanation

1. Photons in sunlight hit the solar panel and are absorbed by semiconducting materials, such as silicon. 2. Electrons (negatively charged) are knocked loose from their atoms, allowing them to flow through the material to produce electricity. Due to the special composition of solar cells, only allow the electrons to move in a single direction. The complementary positive charges that are also created (like bubbles) are called holes and flow in the direction opposite of the electrons in a silicon solar panel. 3. An array of solar panels converts solar energy into a usable amount of direct current (DC) electricity as Dell KD476.

Solar battery chargers are better for the environment in a few ways. For one, with them, batteries can be recharged, therefore no longer contributing to growing landfills. Also, batteries have potentially harmful metals inside them C we do not want to be simply throwing them out into landfills!

Also, if using batteries that can be recharged with a solar battery charger like Dell U4873 DC Aadapter , a person can stop wasting his or her money on the purchase of new batteries.

The batteries of cell phones, PDAs, laptops, mp3 players, and more can be charged by solar battery chargers. This means that you do not have to rely on electricity to charge these devices. This is especially good because most electricity is created by non-sustainable, polluting methods.

Solar battery chargers are also good because they allow the users to charge devices, even when no power outlets are around. This makes them especially useful when working out in the field, traveling, hiking, and/or during an emergency with Dell Inspiron 1300 Battery .

It does not matter if you use a 12 volt solar battery charger, a solar car battery charger, or any other type of charger C the use of any solar battery charger is going to help alleviate waste. By supporting and using solar battery chargers and other sustainable technology, you can help make a difference in todays world.

The solar cells positive terminal is connected through the diode to the positive terminal of the 1.2V battery. If the voltage of the solar cell drops below 1.4 volts then with the 0.2V the blocking diode takes there wont be enough potential to charge the 1.2V battery. The purpose of the diode is to disallow current dissipating out from the battery to the solar cell when this low voltage situation occurs in the solar cell.

Where can buy solar battery charger?

In this store they stock the most major brands and models laptop battery such as : Dell IN SPIRON 5100 Battery Dell Inspiron 6000 Battery Dell Inspiron E1505 Battery Dell Inspiron E1705 Battery All in a secure and convenient platform. Now save your money and time.

Usually the solar battery charger are used in camera and camcorder, and placed on the packbag as follow :

Use different stand to cooling the laptop

By laptopsbattery - November 2nd, 2009, 15:01, Category: General

Use different stand to cooling the laptop

If your latop's cooling system is working properly, you can still do more. Strange fact is that when you use a laptop with a laptop battery on your laptop, you always ask for laptop overheating. Any soft objects may be blocking the cooling system of the ventilation holes. It also can cause heat to get caught underneath the unit. That is why people would burn their laptop.

However, heat buildup can even happen when the laptop sits directly on a desk using a laptop battery.

There are different ways to avoid this buildup. A latop stand to keep the bottom of the notebook and your use of the surface of the table some distance intervals in Apple A105 and Apple A1079,. It created the basic space, the heat can disappear. A type of stand are usually flat, legs are short, thin surface of the type, you can lay in your lap or desk. With an air-inch notebook PC 2, the heat can easily escape, and the airflow through the vents have been completely open.

Sometimes, a stand may be caused by an act of special materials such as aluminum heat in Inspiron 1100 Battery,. This device will actively utilize heat out of notebook cooling further assistance. Another approach is to a laptop pad or pad. In this approach, we hope that with the aluminum heat sink, you put the device active thermal management surfaces. This could mean that trap heat insulation pad notebook coming out to protect your lap. It could also mean that, on the positive development of built-in cooling fan out of thick pad.

Although you can from any electronics store or retailer to buy dozens of these cool online tools for your Inspiron E1505 Battery, one of the things you might at home, and now you can use. A small strip camping tables can be used as a stand notebook. Therefore, we can use large baking rack (can be used for cooling cookies) to do a stand.

One thing to remember is that the heat characteristics of your laptop are always changing, depending on age, environment and power usage. So even if you get yourself the perfect cooling setup, you might want to install some sort of heat-monitoring software in PA3450U-1BRS, PA3451U-1BRS. It'll help you be more aware of your laptop's fluctuating temperatures and learn how different situations can increase the heat.
