Looking for a extended life battery for Lenovo V570

by mheck_man / February 9, 2013 10:09 PM PST

I love my my Ideapad laptop, but the battery life is so poor, I rarely disconnect. Does anyone know where I can find a long life replacement battery? I have searched but have had no luck. Thanks!

I have re calibrated, but saw little change. Have re calibrated again so hopefully it will improve. Thanks!

Don't calibrate too often.

The battery only is rated for 300 cycles so I've seen folk calibrate monthly in hopes of more life. That's not helping. To get more life span in months, don't use the battery when there is power. Some folk don't get it until they have to replace the battery a few times.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
