Whether you just got a brand new laptop or you've had an old notebook for several years, it's in your best interest to maximize your laptop battery life so you get the most out of your computer.
Make sure you "work" the juice in your laptop batteries by unplugging your laptop from a power source until it's at low battery. Keeping your laptop plugged in all of the time is not good for your long-term battery life. Also, be sure to eliminate the common drains on your laptop battery life by minimizing screen brightness, closing unnecessary programs and turning off Wi-Fi when not in use.
Practicing these habits and others (illustrated below) on a regular basis will give the battery in your laptop a long and prosperous life.
