Buy a new laptop battery pack ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to laptop power

Depending on the age of the laptop, if it's 2+ years of age, one or more of the cells in the battery have died.

You may also be experiencing a sudden drop off when the battery meter indicates half to one-third power remaining. If you are not having this problem, you will in the future.

A new battery pack is the most likely solution.

Of all laptops I had the same problems with, the only solution was buying a new battery pack
