What is your battery wear level..? I use batterybar pro.... - 09-08-2009, 12:01 AM
What is your battery wear level..? I use batterybar pro and my new a90 vostro shows .3% wear level. The battery should be new.
I have a mini 9 from the outlet store and it shows 2.5% wear levels.
Is this normal for a fairly new battery to have a .3% wear level..?
How long have you had your battery..? New or referb..? What is your wear level..? Frequency of use..?
Please post even if your battery doesn't have a wear level at all. I want to have a baseline.
Download batterybar here Osiris Development - BatteryBar, the most accurate battery meter for Windows. It shows more accurate wear level to the tenth of a percent.

DO NOT let the battery drain completely
this will NOT help wear level, and COULD ruin the battery permanently
How to prolong lithium-based batteries
It may help the computer think that it has more % left by resetting the "digital memory" but will only increase wear level.
"Short discharges with subsequent recharges do not provide the periodic calibration needed to synchronize the fuel gauge with the battery's state-of-charge." but you dont need to run it till the battery cuts out. That verges on the Low voltage cut off safety circuit
