Should I Remove theinspiron 1525 battery For A Desktop Replacement Laptop?Well,when using a laptop as a desktop replacement the inspiron 6400 battery should not be left in for long periods of time.The laptop will over time discharge the inspiron 1501 battery.Remove the hp pavilion dv6000 battery – making sure that it is charged to 40% and store it in a dry,warm place.Ensure that battery hp g60 is wrapped protectively and nothing will be dropped on it.The dv2000 battery should be re-installed every 3-4 weeks and allowed to fully discharge.Leaving dv5 battery in storage for longer than this without using could cause the battery to fully discharge as the circuitry of the dv9000 battery itself consumes power.Leaving the hp dv7 battery in a laptop while using an electrical outlet for long periods of time will keep the hp 484170 in a constant state of charging up and that will reduce the life cycle of the dell d620 battery.Remember that when you have removed the dell d630 battery from a laptop while using with an electrical outlet the automatic nv52 backup is no longer functional.For bps9 and bps8 battery drivers,they all can be installed in all xp/vista/windows7 32 bits operating system laptops; for bps12 till follow-up models battery drivers,such as bps13 they all can be installed in all vista/windows7 32 bits and 64 bits operating system laptops.A new pa3534u usually comes in a discharged condition with a very low capacity.It is highly recommended to fully charge new dell xps m1210 battery packs before use.A new dell 1545 battery pack needs to be circled (fully discharged and recharged) three to eight times to reach its optimum performance. Rechargeable1520 battery will undergo self-discharging when left unused for a long period of time. Thus,it should always be stored in a fully charged state and kept in a cool,dry and clean place. To maintain the optimum performance of a hp dv4 battery pack,it is highly recommended to circle (fully discharging and recharging) it at least once a month.

what else?

only scratching the surface, I don't want to imply that these are the very best, but each is much better than what has been released, I think:

Can Blair or David please come on line and tell us about plans to release better material from '80 and '81? Really, I have checked around, it's not me. The releases don't impress. The good stuff is really special and yet remains in the can. Trust an old crusty guy, these years ARE VERY GOOD and have not been done to death. Is 8/31/80 in the vault? I saw a piece on a box set (Far From Me?!!) and on the Tapers Section. Thanks

These two years are two of a kind, great effort and get-up by Jerry for the most part, material hatched with Shakedown and Go To Heaven really starting to please over the top at times. Truly, I think the last great show for a stretch was 12/31/81, it was a killer according to the tapes I enjoyed for many years. I saw brilliant shows in 80/81, and I assert that only underwhelming stuff has been released (except maybe 5/6/81). It's no secret that there are great shows that could be released from the Spring and Fall of 1981. From 1980, how about 8/31/80? The reason for doing so is Jerry, he really was dazzling with a sharper focus at that time and succeeding in leading the band higher. It's there on many of the tapes, once you get past Radio City and the Warfield.
