Founded in 1985 in an Iowa farmhouse, Gateway Computer Corporation—or simply Gateway—is a computer hardware company specializing in development, production, support, and marketing of various computer products and accessories, like the Gateway laptop battery. The company became most recognizable for its use of “spotted cow” boxes in which its products were shipped.

Although Gateway was acquired by Acer in 2007, the company still stands strong, combining advanced technology with great customer support.

About the Batteries

Gateway is known for incorporating some of the newest technologies with the fastest speeds while maintaining affordable prices for consumers. Gateway’s laptop batteries are exemplary of the company’s technological advancements.

Modern Gateway laptop battery replacements feature lithium ion cells. These batteries have quickly become the standard, as they are light and compact while still maintaining a maximum power output. Lithium ion provides more power for its weight than nickel cadmium or nickel metal hydride batteries.

Lithium ion batteries do not suffer from the memory effect, which occurs when a battery is not fully discharged every few weeks. This causes the battery to lose its capacity, resulting in a reduced battery life. If your laptop battery only lasts a half hour on a single charge, you will want to search through Laptop Battery Depot’s wide selection and find the right battery for your portable machine.

Battery Life

Much of a laptop’s battery life depends on the hardware inside the machine, especially the rate at which the hardware components consume power. Reducing the speed and energy usage of hardware components contributes to a longer battery life, which is something that Gateway notebooks take advantage of. These notebooks maintain a lightweight, small size and above average battery life.

The reduced power consumption of a Gateway laptop allows for usage time anywhere between 2 to 5 or more hours of power on a single charge. The average lithium ion battery has a lifespan of about 300-500 charges.

Battery Care

A good way to prolong your battery’s life is with proper care and maintenance.

Keep your Gateway battery clean. Using alcohol and a cotton swab, wipe down the battery’s contacts, which will maintain a proper connection between your laptop and the battery, ensuring you get the most out of both.

When storing your laptop, make sure to keep it in a cool, dry place, away from heat and metal objects. However, do not store your laptop for extended periods of time. When in disuse, your laptop should get a full charge every few weeks or so. Otherwise, the battery may fail to hold a charge.
