The computer uses a battery pack that gives you long use between charges.
Battery pack characteristics
The battery pack has the following characteristics:
Employs current battery technology standards.
Delivers a battery-low warning.
The battery is recharged whenever you connect the computer to the AC
adapter. Your computer supports charge-in-use, enabling you to recharge the
battery while you continue to operate the computer. However, recharging with
the computer turned off results in a significantly faster charge time.
The battery will come in handy when you travel or during a power failure. It is
advisable to have an extra fully charged battery pack available as backup.
Contact your dealer for details on ordering a spare battery pack.

Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a conditioning process
that you should follow:
Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
Disconnect the AC adapter.
Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
