Re: battery

How old is the battery?
It's normal that they degrade after much use. And it's very good to use them on the mains whenever possible.

Less than two years.

Re: two years

If you run it on battery power every day, two year is a good life time. If you run it on the mains continually, the battery is hardly used and lasts 'forever'.

Could be old.

The life span is short. The 300 cycle rating is very low so it's easy to see issues just after a year of battery use. The 300 cycle calls the battery good with 50% capacity left. Which surprises folk.

Using Style

It depends upon the using style of your mobile.
Sometimes up to 3 years due to our better-using style.

Depends On Use

It depends upon our daily use. How we use a laptop. HP Battery Issue varies from person to person. I think HP Battery remains good for a long time if we plug out the charger as soon as after completing the battery.
