How to Calibrate an Sony VGP-BPL17 Battery
Your Sony VGP-BPL17 laptop has a small icon in the system tray that displays your battery's current charge. Hovering your mouse over this icon displays your Sony VGP-BPL17 battery's charge percentage. Though this gauge is typically quite accurate, repeatedly charging your battery before you've fully exhausted it can cause it to fall out of calibration, which results in your displayed charge percentage not matching the actual charge level of your battery. Run your sx06xl through a complete charge cycle to calibrate the battery.
1.Connect your Sony VGP-BPL17 power adapter and plug it into a wall outlet. Keep it plugged in until the battery is fully charged.
2.Unplug your laptop's power cord and run the laptop from the Sony VGP-BPL17 battery.
3.Click "Start" and type "Power" in the search bar. Click "Power Options" from the list of results.
4.Click "Create Power Plan" and type a name for it in the field provided. Use a name like "Battery Hog" or "Power Drainer" to ensure you know what it is later on..
5.Select "Never" in the drop-down list next to each item in the list of options. This ensures that your computer does not disable any devices to conserve battery life, which helps drain it faster.
6.Run the laptop until the Sony VGP-BPL17 battery is fully depleted and the laptop shuts itself off. Plug the laptop back in to recharge the battery.
