|After charging all night the battery LED is stil glowing red, although the power supply is now cool (no heavy power drain). I downloaded the service manual from the HP site and to my surprise found that on this laptop the LED doesn't change colour when it is charged (as my other new laptop does), only blinks when operating on battery and the voltage is low. Funny how we sometimes fail to recognise common operating principles of our equipment, when we don't use them regularly and newer systems work differently. |
Summarising: The reconditioning process of discharging and recharging the new battery certainly took the charge voltage from 88 to 100%.
Many thanks for this forum and the kind responses from people I would never have otherwise known. Regards Barry
