There is a misconception about the laptop battery 92p1171 for IBM/Thinkpad X60 X60s that this battery must be charged for twelve hours for the first time. Many consumers of this battery, when buying it, can often hear manufacturers mention how to maintain it by whatever means. Manufacturers seem to enjoy stressing the point that this battery must be charged for twelve hours for the first time in order for its use effect not to be affected. But we do not consider appropriate this way of treatment of the battery, because the battery, like many other batteries, use Li-ion batteries which, after the laptop computer is fully charged, are likely to cause an automatic cutting off of the charging current between the battery itself and the laptop computer. Even if you keep charging it for hundreds of times, its such state will remain the same, and what’s worse, its lifespan will be severely affected due to its being charged for too long. As far as the current charging time of the battery is concerned, even the slowest battery can be fully charged for six hours, and the rest of the charge means a waste of your time.
Another idea that most users tend to run away with is that the laptop battery 92p1171 for IBM/Thinkpad X60 X60s, right after its purchase, must be repeatedly charged for three times before being used. This action had better not take place unless the battery purchased by users is used for one year or so, otherwise users are not recommended to do so. For the cells of the battery, before going out of the plant, have already been activated and carry some electric quantity for users to run in. So the battery, when being purchased by users, is in fact an activated product, in which case, to charge and discharge it for three times means nothing but an increase of its wastage.
