- Avoid overchanging and unplug AC adapter when charging is complete. In

- Avoid _deep discharges_: recharge the laptop battery when its enery level
drops to 40%.
- Reduce unnecessary programs running in background.
- If your hardware vendor supports Linux drivers for batteries, set the charging
thershold to 80%.
+ Some [Lenovo Thinkpads][thinkpad] can benefit from those drivers.
+ Other vendors like [Fujitsu] offers such drives for M$ Windows
