Try setting Voltage one lower than your laptop charger's output first. i.e. if your charger says 19V, try 16V setting on Voltaic battery first. This saves power.
This battery will work best with smaller, more efficient laptops
Change your power management settings to Maximum Battery Life & Turn off WiFi
Some laptops will run from the Voltaic battery with their internal battery removed. You should turn off your laptop before the Voltaic battery is fully drained to avoid crashes.
Remove the cable from your device before changing Voltage between 12, 16 and 19Volts.
We recommend storing and charging the battery in a cool place.
