    Getting the most out of a new battery:

    1. The first thing to do is to charge the battery. Always ensure the battery is fully charged, don't only partially charge it.
    2. After the first charge it is important to allow the battery to fully discharge. This cycle helps to ensure the battery 'learns' the amount of electrical charge it can hold
    3. Following this first cycle, recharge the battery and ensure it reaches 100%.
    4. You can now use the laptop as normal, but remember if you are not going to use the battery for an extended period then it is best to remove and store it.
