A Compaq nc6400 is a laptop intended for business use. The laptop features a lithium ion rechargeable battery. The battery powers the laptop when it is not plugged into an electrical power source. Over time, lithium ion batteries lose efficiency and the amount of time the battery can power the notebook for diminishes. Calibrating or reconditioning the battery every two months can help prevent and restore lost efficiency.
