EXTENDING BATTERY LIFE, REDUCING BATTERY COSTS 95LX 100LX

Probably the single most important thing you can do to extend your Palmtop's battery life is leave it connected to the AC adapter whenever you can.

You should also remove all high-current plug-in cards (i.e. modem cards, not memory cards) when you are not using them. These cards can drain batteries quickly, even when you're not using them. When you are using these cards, connect up the AC adapter whenever possible.

You can further reduce cost by using rechargeable Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd) batteries in the 100LX. To enable NiCd recharging in the 100LX, go into Set Up and press (MENU) Options Battery, highlight Nickel Cadmium, and press (F10) (OK). Whenever you connect your 100LX to the HP F1011A adapter your NiCd batteries will be recharged automatically. DO NOT enable NiCd recharging if you have any other type of battery in your 100LX. (HP warns against using other types of rechargeables).

You cannot recharge batteries in the 95LX, but you can use rechargeables to power the 95LX. However, the 95LX's internal battery logic is set up to monitor alkalines, and low battery warnings are not accurate. If you use NiCds or other non-alkaline batteries in the 95LX, you should also use third party battery monitoring software like BATTman from ACE Technologies, to monitor them.
