    Battery Saga: Old and New 

    Have just found out that it wasn’t the battery. It’s the Macbook. Have to get it fixed while I’m having a really important paper deadline in a week and a progress seminar in 2 weeks. Grad school is cruel :((

    Phd life takes several batteries’ life 

    Entering the fourth year of my grad school, apparently now I have to buy a new one, again, after replacing the first one a year ago.

    Here’s the screenshot from today:

    The battery was dead yesterday, and unexpectedly be able to be charged again this morning at home, and suddenly went dead again later when I was working at the office. So much of battery’s adventure, I either need to buy a new mac or finish the school immediately, I’ve been too long being a phd student (nah. I like to be one so I will extend the time as far as possible. Let’s just get a new battery 😛 )

    Is removing your macbook’s battery will extend it’s life? 

    Don’t think so. It might risk the whole system.

    But the most interesting tip to save battery is by inverting screen by pressing ctrl+option+command+8, and see how does your screen look like 🙂 [printscreen cannot capture this, that’s why i could’t show you]

    Macbook battery: not charging mystery 

    I have just bought a new battery to replace the old one which suddenly dead and refuse to be charged again after I complete discharged it for several days. Maybe overdischarging was the cause.

    But the new battery has been acting weirdly, it cannot be charged after being completely discharged. There are many discussions over the internet reporting that this problem is related to Snow Leopard. Read more here:

      it seems that it takes a while to charge the battery after a full discharge. after 15-20″ it starts charging.

      now the same battery is dead. after a whole night being plugged to the power, the battery still not charging.
