Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Keeping Your Electronics Charged!
some people are in fear of their electronics dying while their in a buisness meeting, during a homework assinment. well you should keep your computer or electronics charged, but leaving your computer charging constanty while not in use can fry your battery. keeping your battery always at full can b bad too this is because your computer will start to think that full charge is now your new "about-to-die". thus means that when u take it off the charger it will decrease amount of time for it to die compared to brand new. try charginit for an hour when your done with it or while you use it. ou should check manual for the amount of time i needs to charge.
Step 2: Amount of Time You Use Your Electronic.
The less often you use your electronic will increase its lifetime. this should be an obvious statement because it will never run, no actually it will decrease its lifetime to because of dust ruining the electrical or slowing down the battery. this could also lead to battery leaks from the corrosive acid in the battery slowly burning through it. so use it often but dont over use it by leaving it on constantly. this leaves to much strain on a battery for too long.
Step 3: Im Not Completely Sure About This But......
im not completely sure about this but but temperture you store your electronics has a toll on the battery life i am not sure about this but i belive low humdity is best. but i believe you should keep it at room temp or a little cooler.
Step 4: Edited Note!
since i have made this instructable i have found another thing out about saving your battery life. this is mostly for laptops but it may be something your willing to try.
however some laptops are not designed to do this, most are.
lets say your going to be at your desk for a few hours and your battery is fully charged. turn it on and plug it.
now carefully turn the laptop so you can have access to the battery compartment. and take the battery out of the laptop. the laptop should run off the power off the wall.
NOTE: SAVE ALL FILES AND CLOSE ALL PROGRAMS IF YOUR DOING A TEST ON WHETHER OR NOT THIS WORKS FOR YOUR ELECTRONIC. IT IS SAFER TO SAVE OFTEN AND EARLY THEN ACCIDENTLY LOSE IT IF YOUR COMPUTERS CIRCUTS ARE NOT POWERED LIKE MOST.
Step 5: Have Fun Using Your Electronics.
these pictures are not mine but great examples for pictures. to do this step take your electronic turn it on and do with it what you would normally. : D
