Ibm Lenovo

International Business Machines is a forerunner for powerful personal computers used by businesses and professionals. In recent years, IBM sold its PC division to Lenovo, a Chinese manufacturer. Still, IBM continues to release quality laptops and computer products.

Most notable in IBM-Lenovo’s laptop inventory is the ThinkPad series. This line of laptops is popular in government and business sectors, though ThinkPad laptops have recently seen a rise in use amongst students. IBM laptops are known to be high quality and very durable. The same goes for the batteries that power the laptops.

About the Batteries

Most of the IBM laptop batteries use lithium-ion, though some older models use nickel-metal hydride. Lithium-ion is much more powerful than the alternative and also comes in a smaller, lighter package. Lithium-ion is ideal for laptops, which tend to focus on the balance between portability and power.

Though lithium-ion tends to not be as cheap, IBM laptop batteries of this type last longer with increased power capacity and the lighter weight (think of it like choosing compact fluorescent light bulbs instead of incandescent).

The newest technology in the IBM laptop battery is lithium polymer, which can be molded to any shape to suit a laptop’s design. IBM-Lenovo laptop batteries come in shapes that differ from the traditional rectangular shape of most laptop batteries.

Battery Life

A new lithium-ion laptop battery will typically last between 2 to 5 hours on a single charge. This is assuming you are not putting the laptop under significant strain (intense gaming, for example). However, IBM’s laptop batteries are considered to have an extended battery life. Ranging from 10.8 to 14.4 volts of power, IBM’s batteries offer up to 9 hours of life on a charge. Some Ibm-Lenovo laptops come with a “battery stretch” feature, which conserves power and further lengthens battery life.

Battery Care

Despite the technology, laptop batteries succumb to age. Lithium-ion batteries have a lifecycle of about 300-500 charges. After about 3 years of use, a laptop battery will only last about thirty minutes on a charge or may fail to hold a charge altogether, so you’ll need to buy IBM laptop batteries now and then to stay efficient.

Fortunately, with a bit of effort, you can help prolong your laptop battery’s life.

Firstly, make sure to clean the contacts of the battery. Wiping away any smudges or dirt will help the battery make a proper connection with the laptop and maximize the power you get from it.

Furthermore, keep your laptop away from extreme heat. Do not leave your laptop battery in a hot car, for instance. Excessive heat can speed up the deterioration of the battery and reduce its overall power capacity.
