Battery pack

The computer uses a battery pack that gives you long use between 
charges.

Battery pack characteristics

The battery pack has the following characteristics:

Employs current battery technology standards.

Delivers a battery-low warning.

The battery is recharged whenever you connect the computer to the 
AC adapter. Your computer supports charge-in-use, enabling you to 
recharge the battery while you continue to operate the computer. 
However, recharging with the computer turned off results in a 
significantly faster charge time.
The battery will come in handy when you travel or during a power 
failure. It is advisable to have an extra fully charged battery pack 
available as backup. Contact your dealer for details on ordering a spare 
battery pack.

Maximizing the battery's life

Like all other batteries, your computer's battery will degrade over 
time. This means that the battery's performance will diminish with 
time and use. To maximize your battery's life, you are advised to 
adhere to the recommendations set out below.

Conditioning a new battery pack

Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a 
"conditioning" process that you should follow:

1

Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.

2

Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.

3

Disconnect the AC adapter.

4

Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.

5

Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.

6

Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.
