The laptops are let to charge even when the batteries are full, affecting the battery performance and also drawing vampire power.
A typical laptop charger consumes around 65 watts of power during charging of the laptop battery and consumes around 25 watts of power as standby power when the laptop battery is fully charged. The aim of this invention is to completely eradicate the standby power consumption and enhance battery life by automatically turning off the power supply to the charger. The device has a Micro-controller Atmega8 programmed to turn on or off the relay circuit depending upon the signal it receives though serial communication. The serial communication is effected by USB connection to the laptop computer. A software that monitors the laptop battery status, sends signals serially to the micro-controller about the battery status. The device turns off the power to the laptop charger when it reaches full capacity (100%) and turns on the power when the laptop battery is low (10%).
This product is compatible with all laptops. As the software is currently developed using .NET it is compatible to Windows computers. The scope of the device can be extended to non-windows platforms using JAVA.
