The battery calibration

What the battery calibration?

Batteries included hardware function to save power. With the battery, devices like cell phones and laptops may have the power to perform its functions. The battery also has the capacity. The battery capacity can not be seen directly. The operating system takes a certain software, such as drivers, to read the battery level so that we can see how the remaining battery level. Ranging from 0% to 100%.

In theory, with the passage of time then the software will not be for accurately displays the percentage of battery. Perhaps the level of accuracy is reduced only slightly, but if continuously will decrease accuracy. It could be the original battery level is still 70% only read 45% on the screen. Therefore, calibration is necessary to restore the level of accuracy of the battery level readings.

How to do it?

Actually, there has never been a standard of the vendor or manufacturer of the battery to calibrate. The most common way is as follows:

Use the device until the battery is depleted and the device turns off by itself.
Charge the battery to 100%. Not to break up the filling.
After 100%, allow up to 1 hour.
finished
There may still be other versions of how to calibrate the battery, such as repeated several times such measures even have to reset the device. But whatever it is, basically there is no specific standard battery calibration way.

What effect?

The expected effect is the measurement of the battery level becomes more accurate. For example the original battery level is still 80% yes 80% legible on the display device.

Takes your network against hacker attacks

Foxnews.com – There’s a gadget in your home that you don’t give much thought to until it stops working and you discover you’re lost without it. Then you curse it, reboot it and watch it spring back to life — or not.

It’s your router, your lifeline to the internet, an essential component in your household and business. And much as your operating systems, software and apps are constantly updated to thwart security threats, your router runs 24/7 and receives its share of updates, too.

Unfortunately, router update notifications don’t hit us over the head. There is no red exclamation mark that alerts you to an issue, no message that pops up asking if you’d like to apply an update. But this mini-computer that directs traffic over networks sits vulnerable unless you take action. (By the way, router updates are called firmware because they are embedded into a piece of hardware.)

Consider what you’ve connected to your network. For starters, there are your computer, tablet, phone and television. Add the surge in internet-connected you-name-its: cameras, light bulbs, refrigerators … even a Wi-Fi-ready slow cooker.

Your family uses the network, and your guests do, too. (Speaking of security, not too many people know you can share your Wi-Fi without giving guests your password.

Hackers are continually looking for targets, and all they need to get to the personal files and devices on your network are your router’s IP address and your administrative password. A simple Google search is all it takes to find both for just about any router make and model.

Once hackers have this information from a router that hasn’t been updated, they can steal your files, peek through your webcam or worse. They can start sniffing data that’s passing to and from your router. They can record all your online activity, including usernames and passwords. They can even reroute your traffic to fake websites.

Routers can also be taken over to perform illegal activities, such as denial of service attacks or piracy. The scary part is you might not even know your router is compromised and being used for nefarious deeds.

If you’re not regularly updating your router with new firmware, you’re ripe for attack. Fortunately, updating isn’t hard. The procedure depends on your router, but you typically access an administrator page by simply typing the default IP address of your router in a browser’s address bar.

Common IP addresses for popular routers are 192.168.1.1 for Linksys and D-Link, 192.168.0.1 for Netgear, and 192.168.2.1 for Belkin.  Should none of these addresses work for you, there’s a free app called Fing that can help.

Fing is a network tool that belongs in your tech arsenal, even if you know your router’s IP address. Through it, you not only can learn your router’s IP address, but you can see all devices connected to your network, check your internet connectivity, monitor the network and detect intruders.

Once you’re on the router’s administrator page in a browser, you will have to enter a username and password to log in. Remember when I said that passwords were readily available online?

Once logged in, find an area called “Advanced” or “Management” to check for firmware updates. Usually, you will have the option to check, review, download and install your router’s new firmware on the same page.

But network security is more than firmware updates. In this Komando Flash Tip video, you can see the steps necessary to secure your network in less than 60 seconds

Router firmware updates require a restart, so make sure you do not have ongoing activities that require a network connection when you apply them. Make an appointment now in your calendar. You should check for router firmware updates at least once every three months.

Fortunately, some newer routers don’t require human intervention for updates. The updates are applied automatically, helping to keep our files and digital lives safe from harm.
