Windows The past few weeks or so, there's been a lot of interest in a supposed battery status report bug in Windows 7. After installing Windows 7, some users reported seeing "consider replacing your battery"-warnings in systems that appeared to be operating just fine on Windows XP or Vista. After extensive research, Steven Sinofsky has now explained on the Engineering 7 blog that the fault is not with Windows 7 - it really, really is your battery.

From my experience, there is some perplexing magic about batteries. Sometimes they work full capacity and then all of a sudden start losing 20% a week and die. Some on the other hand outlast the laptop they came with.
