how do I prolong battery life and how do I get another battery

I have a new G580.  I can't find a battery management program on it, but I want to take measures to prolong the battery service lifetime.  What do I do?

 

Second qustion:  I went to the site link for ordering a spare/new battery, but it wants a nine digit model number, and the model number on the underside of this computer is a 5 digit number: 20150.  but there is this number : 59354100.  Also, I can't read the text very well, my eyes are bad, why the hell do they have to make the numbers so small?

Hi signmeuptoo,

 

Thanks for posting in the Lenovo Community,

 

As I understand your need that you want the Lenovo Power management application,

 

For Windows 7(32bit-64bit):

How do I know if it is 2189 or 2689, it isn't labeled with either number.

Re: how do I prolong battery life and how do I get another battery

Hi signmeuptoo,

 

I’d like to help you to find your MTM [machine type model]: in BIOS on Info Page you could find Serial and type,

 

And to enter BIOS please turn on the machine and then keep pressing on F2 and you will be inside the BIOS.

 

Hope the information helps. Let us know.

 

Regards

 

Soha

Re: how do I prolong battery life and how do I get another battery

Belarc I knew about. There is no 9 digit alpha numeric on that either. Only 20150, and using that number doesn't help me choose a battery, the battery page here wants a 9 digit number. Thanks for trying to help, but clearly Lenovo website is being managed by keystone cops...

Re: how do I prolong battery life and how do I get another battery

The ONLY number in belarc and on the computer itself is 20150. that number won't work with the battery finder here. Obviously the website isn't being managed right, or my laptop's model number is one the company themselves have no clue about! This is very irritating. How do I buy a battery for crying out loud. Does anyone here know what they are doing?
