What, discharging the battery and recharging? or using an electric razor vs alternatives?

These days I use an electric for touch ups and sideburns, or if I'm out of regular razors.

I have a similar Dell laptop and have found that the batteries last a little over a year before they won't hold a charge anymore. I think I'm on my 4th battery in 5 1/2 years now. My current one was bought last December. And I too buy the supposedly "longer lasting" kind: 96 whr, 12-cell, Sanyo lithium.

I usually run the battery down anywhere from half to almost empty before putting it on the recharger. About 50% the time, when it's recharging the computer is completely turned off; don't know if that makes any difference to overall battery recharging performance. At other times, it's either working solely on battery or working while plugged in to the recharger; it depends on what I'm doing and where.

By now I'm pretty much resigned to having to spend the $150+ every year for a replacement Dell battery.... *sigh*

When I bought my E1705 I got an extra 9 cell for maybe $120? Then got 2 more from ebay for $58 each! So 4 batteries in all, not used heavily in 3 years but 1 original from Dell battery has failed me. It's my UPS for the laptop now!

Default Battery cell problem

"Having worked with batteries for years :i can tell you that not all cells or packs are equal"

I agree with you.

If there are two battery cells in the battery pack, one is 2200mah, and one is 1800mAh, then the battery pack's capacity is 1800mAh, my dell inspiron 6000 battery broken when used for not very long, the repair man tell me that one battery cell work out, only one cell cause a replace of whole battery.
