Does anybody have any tips or tricks for extending battery life... besides letting your battery run all the way down before you charge it up?
Hi, TheEnergy-efficient software article may give you some tips but it is for more for developing applications. One thing that you do to extend the battery life is that you could minimize the number of applications that you have running at one time.

Are you asking about prolonging battery life short-term or long-term?
For example by short-term I mean at an single sitting... I start my laptop and I know I'm going to be away from a power sorce for quite a while and want the battery to last as long as possible.
...Or do you mean long-term such as wanting the battery to be able to take as much of a charge as it did when it was brand new. Over time batteries loose their ability to take a charge and eventually have to be replaced.
The best thing to do is take our your battery when it's not charging, that way it doesn't risk getting over charged and losing its longevity. covert hypnosis
the best method to make your battery work longer for you is to remove your battery from your laptop when use in house,otherwise it will over charge and battery died after 2-3 year,in that case,you need to buy a new one to replace.

Hi Maria987...... You can also incraese ur battery life with cut down external devices. USB devices (including your mouse) & WiFi drain down your battery. Remove or shut them down when not in use.
