a few tech tips... laptop batteries

whether you use a Mac or PC... when using a laptop you want to consider your battery

when you use your laptop be sure that you do not always use it plugged into your power supply
if you always use your laptop plugged in you risk losing battery life
work on your laptop off the battery... let it trickle down
then recharge

when traveling consider extending your battery life by decreasing the brightness of your screen display

finally...
when your laptop or laptop battery dies... do not just throw it in your trash
this stuff is toxic and is eWaste and should be recycled or disposed of properly
check your local government for eWaste drop off dates!
