Toshiba netbook battery

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I did recently got a new Toshiba netbook and I was wondering that does Toshiba netbooks come with a feature called batter care function like Sony notebooks have? I basicly want to set it so it will like only charge upto 50% or 80% so it will save the battery life. On my Sony notebook I can do this.


This is the model I have NB505-N500BL

I just don't know that if other companies other than Sony has this feature. But if all Toshiba computers don't have it I wonder what I can download so it will only charge upto 50% or 80% to save battery life.

So the battery only charges to 50% you say and it supposedly saves battery life? That doesn't make one damn bit of sense. 50% is less than 100% therefore you will have less battery life.

No no no I' am not talking about how long I can have the netbook without AC power. I' am talking about how to save the life of the battery so it will last for many many years without having the batter lose charge. I found out that if you only charge upto like 50% or 80% the life of the battery will live longer. Of cource having the battery in a cool place is better but having it only charge upto 50% would be the best but if I use the battery often then charge upto 80% would be better than 100%. Basicly 100% is not the best I found out since that shortens the batter life.
