While it is true that the cost of batteries is a common topic, not many people know why they are so expensive.
The reason is because they’re made of metals like aluminum, nickel metal hydride, and platinum. These metals are used primarily for electronic components, but they can also be used for other purposes. For example, a certain type of lithium ion battery can be used to store electrical energy. Even though they are expensive, the energy they store can be used to power a computer or other devices.
Even though the energy cost of batteries is a big issue (and why many people don’t know that they’re so expensive), I believe they are actually one of the reasons why people dislike batteries. It’s because the very limited amount of power they can store means that it is very difficult to store enough energy for longer than the expected lifespan of the battery.
The same thing happens with batteries in other gadgets. The very limited amount of power they can store means if youre not careful, you may end up with a dead battery.
I just wanted to share this with you since it is an issue that I have had on several occasions. I have had my LG (which is a battery) die on me on many occasions. I have had my MacBook (which is a battery) die on me on many occasions. I have had my iPod (which is a battery) die on me on many occasions. I have had my PlayStation (which is a battery) die on me on several occasions. And so on.
As an example of just how expensive batteries are, I have a new MacBook Air that I just received today. It turns out that the MacBook’s battery is a total nightmare. When I plug it into my PC (using the USB cable you see above), it only takes about 5 seconds for the battery to completely die. But after that it only takes about 30 seconds before the laptop dies.
It’s not just Apple computers that have these issues. I have had this laptop for about a month now, and it has the same issue. The battery life is about a week and half. At the worst, I have had it die twice in a row. The first time it was just a couple hours, but after that it was about 3 days. I have no idea what to do about it. It is so, so frustrating.
The solution is simple: if you’re a Windows user, make sure you keep your battery at home. You can get battery life extension on Windows 7 and Vista, but I’d recommend Windows XP or Vista for your next computer.
The reason is simple. Your laptop is a computer, and computers do not like being left alone. They tend to turn on all the lights in the room, the power strips, the USB ports, etc. and turn back on when you leave. That’s why batteries are so expensive. If you can’t manage to get the laptop’s battery back from being left unattended, then you can buy a better one. If you can get the battery back, that is.
With a laptop, you can leave it on your desk, and then plug in an additional power source that charges the laptop. The battery charge will last longer, and its smaller size allows you to carry it around more. The same is true of the desktop computer.
