How to get optimal battery life from your devices

The batteries in your wireless cell phone, tablet or laptop are probably not the same old Duracells you used in your childhood walky-talkies.

With newer devices it's really important to understand what you should do to promote optimal battery life.

For some batteries, allowing them to run down is important; for others, keeping them full as often as possible maintains good battery health.

The bottom line is, with new communications devices, you must follow the manufacturer's advice closely.
