Lately my laptop batteries run out really fast. I wish they did not. Now I need to charge again soon. But been working on some big money projects. I just love making money online. oh well will have to switch to my phone soon. My phone battery somehow lasts longer than my lap top. But i always charge my phone every night now.

Yes.. it happens. You should keep your laptop charged in then?

Laptop batteries wear out fast, you always need to make sure you only charge when it asks you to do so (remove charger when battery reaches 100%), it is always better to not use the laptop while it is charging (yeah, impossible, I know) and never make the percentage go lower than 5%. You probably use your phone less and charge it less/more carefully. Same here. My laptop lasts for about 2 hours then I need to recharge it.

I agree with Sabrina's tips. On another note, you might want to use it on charger only (battery not installed in your laptop), if you'll just be using your laptop at home :)

what about plugging in the computer to the wall.

If you use your laptop with the charger plugged in, that might weaken the battery. Now mine wouldn't last 5 minutes unplugged

Lap tops really suck up power.

It's a fact that laptop batteries always run out faster than phone.

I very rarely unplug my lap top from the charger because I rarely use the lap top anywhere other than my desk.
