Ah dang... Thanks, I'm reminded to request for a replacement battery. It seems I kill these things every 4 months. Good thing I get them for free lol.

I would like to know how to do this too. All I can find is the Control Panel's Power Options which doesn't show much detail of anything near what has already been posted.

If you guys have a battery icon in your system tray, right-click on it and see if you can find this information. I use a Thinkpad, so it comes with its own Power Manager dashboard. Yours probably have different dashboards depending on the brand and its packaged application suite.

I reckon that means it's time for a replacement.

Yeah, I guess this laptop really doesn't tell me much of anything about my battery.

1. Use computer often (Everyday or Every 2 days - charge it to full at the end of the day)
2. Empty computer battery or until (5-15%) and recharge to full
3. Leave it for a couple hours - full
4. Use it all again
Repeat

This is how you calibrate your battery.
Anyway my battery capacity is 103% of original...lol

If you guys don't have mAh or mWh, get a battery health gadget/widget/freeware you can practically find it anywhere on the internet.

Good tips, although I don't really bother preserving my battery. In fact, I don't bother taking care of my laptop at all. Each time my machine breaks down, I just make a phone call, and they send some nervous intern with a new battery or replacement laptop.
