If you selected to have your Circular Computing™ laptop fitted with a brand new battery, please read these instructions so that you gain the maximum life from your new battery.
Your new battery is shipped in a partially discharged state and every li-ion laptop battery needs to be ‘run in’. To do this, just repeat a full charge and discharge 3-4 times. It is normal for the battery meter on the laptop to be incorrect at first. This is because the battery meter is still calibrated to the condition of the old battery. After you have completed several full charge and discharge cycles, the battery meter will re-calibrate to the new battery.
Please be aware that until your Circular Computing™ laptop is calibrated to your new battery the laptop may cut off prematurely without warning. It is, therefore, important to save your data frequently.
It is common for a new battery not charge to 100% straight away. This does not mean the battery is faulty – simply turn off the laptop then remove and re-insert the battery and connect to the AC power. The battery should then continue to charge.
