Smart Battery Tells You When It's About To Explode

viperidaenz Re:Never mind the user (97 comments)

I have an MSI laptop, it's battery is about 10% original capacity. Still gets up to 15 minutes.
Not bad for over 10 years old.

The objective requirements you talk about is all you generally need to provide private hire services.
