What Is A Battery’s Capacity?
A battery’s capacity is the amount of energy stored in it and therefore, can be taken from it. Capacity is usually measured in Ampere-hours (amp-hours) or Ah. Ah is simply a unit for power. It refers to how much power your battery gives per hour before it is drained.
How fast your battery drains and recharges affects its capacity. A faster discharge leads to a lower battery capacity because the amount of energy you can get from it goes down. On the contrary, its capacity is higher when the discharge rate is slower. This shows why it’s important to know the details of your battery. The specifics can help you see how long you can run your devices on it.
Why Should I Know About My Battery?
In our technology-driven world, high computer performance is a must. Your battery health is part of it and it’s not just about fast discharging. A bad battery can wear out your computer’s hardware faster, which leads to more repairs or the need to buy a new one altogether. Your laptop or device must draw a certain amount of power from your battery. A low capacity causes overheating because your system won’t be able to get enough energy to run its fans. This is just one problem that can arise due to a bad battery.
