Like other electronic devices that use batteries, laptops cannot be separated from the issue of low battery or the battery runs out.
Certainly, this will be very frustrating when experienced. Moreover, PC batteries run out while working, roaming, internet, or playing games.
It is known, each battery has a lifetime that from time to time will decrease and eventually stop functioning more efficiently than before.
If you initially have a laptop battery that can last up to 6-8 hours, and now only can last 3 hours before a low battery, then you are not alone.
What causes laptop battery power to drop dramatically? The following is how to check it.
Before you begin, it’s good to know a little about what the battery cycle is. Basically, the battery cycle is the number of times you charge a laptop battery when buying it.
Each full battery charge (from 0 percent to 100 percent) is counted as one full cycle.
The higher the number of battery cycles you have, the ‘older’ your battery will be and the faster it will reach the limit before finally functioning normally.
