You must take into account that the adaptor matches the laptop. They are very important because they charge the batteries and the technical specifications are different for every laptop. These differences refer are in terms of voltage and amperage. An impropriate adaptor can lead to battery explosion or the laptop not working. The same thing happens with batteries. They can’t be replaced from one laptop to another, even if they are of the same type. You should charge the batteries when the laptop is not being used (advisable) and is connected to a power supply. If you want mobility, you can use 2-3 original batteries supplied by the manufacturer.
Types of batteries
Toshiba Satellite Pro L450 laptop can use batteries of 6 or 9 cells that give two or three hours of backup. The 6-cell batteries provide a backup of up to two hours for normal working. Even though the 9-cell batteries are bigger, these give you only three hours of backup, if the laptop works normally. This means that the display works with a lower luminosity. To save battery charge, disconnect other additional devices like a second monitor or a video projector. These consume battery power faster. Take care that an improper adaptor can lead to battery overcharge and damage it.
Laptops should be used without connecting it to the power supply. It is not advisable to unplug the laptop after using it. As long as you are connected to a power supply, it is forbidden to take off the battery. If the battery is damaged, it is advisable to change it and never use it again. Don’t expose the battery to direct sunlight or place it near some heating source. A moist and dusty environment is harmful, too.
