1. activate new batteries want your notebook battery longevity, there must be a good beginning, which may from time to purchase notebook you. New notebooks in the first switch on the machine, a battery should be 3% of electricity (which is the generic manufacturers. If you buy the notebook first opened, has been found full of batteries is certainly being used by others), this time, you should not use external hard disks power to the battery where I call up until turn, and then use external hard disks power charging. After returning home, but also the power to battery exhaustion later made, more than 12 hours charging time must, do repeated three times in order to activate cells that can lay a sound foundation for future use.
2. minimizing the number of batteries used this method gives the feeling that some trick, but it is also the most effective. People should know that the number of discharged battery provides a direct bearing on the life of each person and one for battery on decommissioning a step forward. We recommend the use of external hard disks to power, the use of external hard disks should be battery power down. Some friends of convenience, often several times in one day Chaba power, and notebook computers equipped with batteries, do so in greater cell damage. Because each access to external hard disk power equivalent to the battery charging time, battery on Zheshou natural.
3. exhausted after charging electricity and avoid charging time regardless of your notebook use lithium or nickel-hydrogen power electricity will be made after the exhaustion of electricity (capacity of less than 1%), which is the best way to avoid the memory effect. No memory effect on lithium call saying that I had in front of businesses that are irresponsible misled. Lithium call will be the same memory effect, but its memory than nickel-hydrogen little effect then. Mobile phone batteries charged with the same methods, when you give notebook battery charging, to avoid excessively long hours, 12 hours or less in the general control. As for the prevention of insolation, preventing affected with damp, prevent erosion chemical liquids, avoid contact with metal objects batteries attention to matters such as access, will not mention here.
The Babel fish is small, yellow and leechlike, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. It then excretes into the mind of its carrier a telepathic matrix formed by combining the conscious thought frequencies with nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain which has supplied them. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. The speech patterns you actually hear decode the brainwave matrix which has been fed into your mind by your Babel fish.
