Peak Shift

To make effective use of electricity, battery power is used during the day, when energy demand is high, and the PC is charged during the night, when demand is relatively low. Averaged power demand is realized.

Supported models: V713, V832, V632, R822, R732, T953, T653, T553

Switching between AC Power and Battery Power

* When a nighttime rate is contracted for with the power company. Electricity rates differ depending on the contract. Amounts of electricity consumed during charging differ, depending on PC usage environments.

* The diagram only explains the peak shift concept, and actual peak shift hours vary depending on types of battery packs in the main body and the remaining battery levels.

* The battery pack is a consumable. Repeated charges and discharges over time reduce the battery life cycle, bringing nearer the time when the battery must be replaced.

Battery Life Cycle

Battery Life Cycle

When a battery is repeatedly charged to "full charge" or left with a full charge, the rate at which is deteriorates is accelerated. When "eco charge mode" is "On", the charge capacity is suppressed and battery life is extended. Even if the "eco charge mode" is "On", when battery power is frequently used it automatically switches to the standard charging method.

Supported models: V713, V832, V632, R822, R732, T953, T653, T553
