He told me (even though i had fully conditioned the battery) to pull the battery out and hold the power button on for 40 secs, then re-insert the battery pack and power on. He said this drains the battery in a better way than just doing it manual with the comp on.

But I have noticed since then the battery takes alot longer to charge. Do you know why that is.

HAs anyone heard of this "pull our battery to drain" method. not that I would do it alot.

i hope the rep didnt mess up my battery, i have never heard othis method before, pulling out a battery completely. He basically said that it would drain it much better than just using the laptop.

But the thing is, when I turned the PC back on after doing this, the battery still had 18% left. Then I plugged it back andcharged it and still is for 2hours now.

Cause Ive already conditioned the battery and drained it completely 4 times alread so I shouldnt have to do it anymore for at least a couple weeks to a month.

I have an A45-S151 Toshiba and according to the sales rep and what I've read on forums, the new laptop batteries don't have to be drained and recharged like the old laptop batteries to allow them to keep holding a charge.

My battery for the most part lasts about 3-3 1/2 hrs of normal use using the wireless internet connection.

I have never done or performed a conditional charge and have not seen any degradation of time that the battery will run.
