How to Optimize Your Laptop Battery

31 Days of Spring Cleaning: Optimize Your Laptop Battery

The first time you get a new gadget (whether it be a laptop, smartphone, or tablet), you pop the box open, fully charge it, and go. Does this phrase describe your charging habits? It's easy to plug-n-play when it comes to your tech, but optimizing your battery the first time you use your new gadget will help keep your battery a top performer. How do you do this? It's easy — first, fully charge the battery, then let it run down completely before fully charging again. Good news is, you can do this even if your gadgets aren't new to help keep batteries running on all cylinders.

Check out the rest of our 31 Days of Spring Cleaning series to get your digital life in order.
