Is your laptop or other portable device always in need of a charge?
Battery technology has improved over the years but batteries don’t hold an infinite charge. Every charge and discharge cycle shortens the battery’s capacity. As the battery ages you will notice the time of service decreases. Initially, a new battery might have 5 hours of operation, the next charge and discharge cycle might only deliver 4.999 hours or less. After a large number of charge and discharge cycles, you will notice that the battery will not power your portable device for an acceptable period of time.
