    Laptop Battery Care

    Hi, I just bought a Toshiba Satellite laptop A135-S2276 and am wondering how I should care for the battery to help extend its life. Should I discharge it now and then? If so, how often and do I need to get it all the way down to 0%? Thanks a lot!

    Hope you'll forgive me for saying this, but you ought to see (read) what Toshiba says about that topic. I've only owned Gateways (long ago) and IBMs and the battery preparation and care MAY be prescribed differently by some manufacturers. No offense is intended.
