Good point there!! I'm pretty sure that leaving a laptop constantly on charge will screw the battery much quicker than if you only charge it when required.

Hi John,

No, it came from the US of A

This is from the Antigravity website:

The Antigravity Battery normal voltage is 13.2v. The battery will read up to 14.7V immediately after charging. The normal operating range will read between 13.3-14.5V. After a few hours it will self balance to the 13.3-7 range which is its normal state of charge. The maximum voltage the battery should be exposed to is 14.7V. On the lower end of the voltage range the battery should be put on a charger if the battery voltage gets drops below the 12.5V range while sitting. The voltage should not be allowed to drop below 10.5V while at rest. Permanent damage will occur at below 10.5 volts..

Rob these are LiFePO4 batteries

A charge cycle doesn't discharge a battery to 0v. It's just going from charged to discharged and back within the particular batterys intended charge range. Even deep cycle batteries are considered fully discharged when they still retain between 20-50% charge.
Lithium batteries in hybrid cars are shallow cycle and don't discharge more than 20% or so,charge before being considered fully discharged.

I did not know that. I stand corrected. Thanks, I learned something today . I wonder if my battery is dead, better check.
