Satellite C650D-006 - how to maximize the battery life?
I have just bought a laptop C650D/006 and I was wondering what is the best way to maximize the battery life. In other words, if I use it with the power cable plugged AC will be keeping the battery installed the result of all the time a decrease in the battery or it does not make a difference?
You can maximize the life of the dough if you always remove the battery if you n t necessary e.g. in the House where you can work with AC/DC adapter.
In addition, the battery must always be fully charged and be invoiced if it s empty.
Moreover, I found a very interesting article for you in the section fair questions:

How to improve the battery life?
I have the Satellite A300-1PH.
You want to extend the battery work in order to use the laptop longer with the battery power?
Well, in order to extend the battery work, you should check the Vista power settings.
Here, you can assign some settings like brightness etc. who would save the energy of the battery of the screen.

I would like to ask you for advice. Given that I just bought this laptop, I would not my battery life shorten as soon as my old laptop. You plug the power cable when the battery is fully charged? Since I'm on cell regularly, 3 h battery is not enough for me. All do you advise me to take the battery out and use that? We hope to get all the valuable tips here. Thank you!
After the available studies, newsletters and my experience, there is no need to remove the battery if fully charged when working with AC plugged in. It is recommended only to tell - and recharge the battery once a month, not more. You should not work with AC plugged on and removed the battery.
Furthermore, I'm fighting currently with the battery in a new unit. The battery itself was very fast discharge with the unit is turned off and removed ca connection. Now, the Toshiba service changed the battery. Will see how the situation will be after a few days.
I want to maximize the battery from Toshiba. I read the user manual. Following the instructions of the PC hybernates when the battery is still 3%. I tried to change the critical-battery level, but it does not allow below 3%.
What should I do to completely discharge the battery?
Thanks in advance.
Why you want to change the level of less than 3% battery? I think that s useless because need new lithium ion battery doesn t 0% of discharge in order to maximize the battery life.
Just read this interesting article on the useful battery tips:
is it possible to show the life of the battery in percent and in hours and minutes in the taskbar? (Windows 7 64-bit)
Energy saving does not support Windows 7, I think. Are there any other utility that can show battery info?
> not only in percentage battery life
That s a feature! ;)
The battery life on Vista and Windows 7 displayed in percent. If you want in hours and minutes too you must install an additional tool such as Notebook BatteryInfo. Use Google to find this program!
How can I activate the battery icon visible on the taskbar? Currently, I only have the type of mode e.g. bulb & color to save energy.
I tried to activate the right click on the bar of tasks/properties/notification areas, found it necessary to icon & loaded to show always, however, the batery icon remains hidden.
This will not help you the battery icon appears only if the laptop is disconnected from the AC adapter and run only in battery mode.
So, I'm going on a trip soon on a bus and I want to be able to bring my computer, but it is running out of battery very fast. How can I save energy?
Looking out the window or talk to your neighbor instead of using the computer in the bus.
Leave your computer at home.
Buy a new battery.
Take the power supply with you in case the bus has power ports for each or a few pairs of seats.

I try to set aside my laptop (satellite 5205-s505) today. But I found that the release latch was damaged somehow. What can I do?
My seriously damaged lcd. I have method to close the LCD to save energy (just use external moniter)?
This battery is a very good question. I think you're the first person who asked it.
If you cannot remove the only way is, I think, to disassemble the entire laptop and somehow free battery.
When you use the external monitor, you have to use the FN + F5 key combination and switch to an external monitor only. Portable computer's LCD will be OFF.
You can also check the Advanced display settings. Usually, you can also find settings to define where should be the office.

I just bought a new MacBook Pro 2015 13 inches and I love it so far! Mainly, I bought it for use at the University since I am a student in Architecture and I was told that the MacBook Pro are great for this.
Anyway, as I always take careful care of my business, I want to know how to maximize the battery in my MacBook Pro? Is it true that whenever I have my MacBook Pro connected to the charger and it reaches the max (100%), the charger stops charging? Also, should I turn off or put to sleep when I'm not using it?
I have read online some tips, but I want to just make sure that all of its clear. I have a lot of questions to be honest, but if someone can give a brief explanation I would really appreciate it!
Thanks in advance.
When you leave your MacBook Pro is plugged, it stops to load automatically when it reaches 100%. There's no need to unplug it.
I turn on my Macbook Pro in the morning and left running unless I'm going out for a few hours in this case, I if it turned off.
In the night I turned off it. I don't use mode 'sleep', as with the SSD climbing boots Macbook very quickly. But that's just my preference.
I heard that if you leave your computer connected permanently, a once a month, you must let sink to about 30% and then recharge.
It is not good to let it drop below 10%.

I have a Satellite P750 seems to also have a problem with the battery when it is asleep and NOT trendy
She stops going flat in about 3 hours.
Nothing connected except a dongle for the mouse. And he sleeps there is no display going.
It is a few months old... I think it can be calibrated
Can someone please tell me how to recalibrate the battery.
Thanks in advance
You can calibrate the battery very easily.
Disconnect the power adapter and leave the laptop disconnected until the battery is completely discharged.
Then plug in the power adapter and charge the battery until the battery indicator (LED) would turn to green.
This must be done and repeated 2 - 3 times in the line.
Hi everyone, I bought a laptop Satellite C650D/006 yesterday from the original owner and he is 5 months old, but I don't like the installation of Windows 7 Home premium 32 bit OEM toshiba so I deleted from the hard drive and installed a complete installation customized windows 7 Edition home premium 32-bit and active with the OEM - COA key on the laptop.
After installation, I noticed that the LAN controller has not been installed in Device Manager so I couldn't of internet connection to run automatic updates of microsoft for win 7,
I went to the toshiba website and download the driver of network for this laptop and I installed it manually, and after that the laptop has been connected to the internet via an ethernet cable.
can someone tell me why the LAN Controller software is not installed on this laptop with a custom installation of Windows 7.
even my new dell and HP laptops install this driver when I do a custom installation of Windows 7, so why not this laptop.
see you soon
> can someone tell me why the LAN Controller software is not installed on this laptop with a custom installation of Windows 7.
If I understand your message, you have deleted the preinstalled Toshiba OS and installed a clean Win 7 OS in this notebook. Right?
This means that all drivers must be installed after the installation of Windows.
In some cases the Win 7 use standard Microsoft drivers that are part of the operating system and some devices may be recognized automatically, but in most cases you will need to install the correct drivers.
> even my new dell and HP laptops install this driver when I do a custom installation of Windows 7, so why not this laptop.
Than other cell phones use the same chip as C650 LAN card? I doubt not all laptops use the same LAN chip, which means that different driver must be installed.
I have a few years old Satellite M35X-S149, no problem so far however I have been affected by the life of the very poor battery (like 10 minutes of full load at 0%). I've reconfigured the power options so that she wouldn't do anything even when the battery went to 0% (not set auto standby extended) and it runs for another 45-60 minutes after 0% battery.
So I guess the battery is faulty but not dead, and in my opinion, there is a sort of 'meter' that does not work as assumed, is it possible to reset o calibrate?
Anyone ran into this same problem?
I can give you a tip how to recalibrate the battery:
1. the battery should be fully charged to 100%
2. then you will need to change the profile of powersaving as follows-> Hibernate & standby off, disable the options that cuts off the machine when you batt. stabilize so that the machine stops when the battery is at 0%
3 let the machine work for how long does the battery last
4. once the machine stops itself when the battery is COMPLETELY empty, let the battery charge (the laptop must be turned off)
5. check if it worked and repeat the operation if the result does not satisfy you
6. in the case of NO success, I would replace the battery
Welcome and good luck
I bought a MBP 15 "(MacBook Pro with the Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5), Core i7 2.5 GHz, 16 GB of DDR3 memory) in January 2016." Although this particular model has 9 hours of wireless web browsing, I find his behaviour pretty weird lately.
Right after the purchase of this piece which I could flaunt, I tried to measure his performance of the battery because it is one of their main selling point. As a test, I have that YouTube and the video stream with audio turned on at full volume in Safari (as he called to be optimized on Chrome/Firefox) for continuous 1 hour. To my delight, I found that 10%-11% of the battery charge has dropped. Twice I've tested, the result was invariably the same. Yesterday I repeated once more the same 'experience '. The battery got decreased by 13%-14% in two innings.
Now-a-days, if I keep open Safari, do certain amount of browsing the web, use Google docs/sheets, Facebook, streaming video (no Flash, games, etc.), the battery drops about 20% in an hour. Point to note that I have installed a lot of software to exercise fully the potential of the machine, but only a handful of those, for example, Dropbox, Little Snitch run as a background service consuming little cycles CPU.
As you can see, the battery drain went from 10% to 11% to 20% with a bit more of its use. This essentially translates to 5 hours of computing with a fully charged battery.
If I followed the amperage, the full capacity of the battery (9 full cycles up to now) is approximately 8600 ~ mAh. Theoretically, to offer 9 hours of battery life, the amperage must be about 955 mAh, while, with the above mentioned usage profile, he gushed to-(1400-1500) mAh for no reason.
I apologize for writing a long post. In the end, my question is if this drainage is normal? Earlier, I used a 13 "MBP (no graphics card) for a month, the battery life is impressive (about 7-8 hours at full load). That's what I expect from my new MBP that is twice as expensive. I'm sorry if I look like whining, but you understand very well how he feels a (so-called), a device does not promise and you've already spent your hard earned money.
Battery run time as announced by Apple is measured with the help of non-intensive resource settings that simply do not represent its actual use. I have never achieved the results announced and that I never thought I could. I just use the MBP for my needs, is not to see if I can reproduce the hype of Apple.
According to what you wrote, it seems that your results are normal for what you do. I don't see that you have a problem.

Could someone tell this newbie how to change the battery CMOS on a Tecra M3?
I can see it is located under the hard drive that I can remove, but cannot see how to strip all along to get to the battery.
Thank you very much
The CMOS battery swap is not so simply, and to do this you need to disassemble the laptop everything.
Can you do that as a beginner?
It's maintenance manual isn't public document and how to explain the exact disassembly steps now.
Have you tried to load the CMOS battery properly? Leave laptop on the power supply more than 48 hours and it must be fully charged again.
