    After years of only owning desktops (and PDAs!), went laptop just before I retired 14 years ago as needed the mobility, and current small French house has no office. Went through two consumer laptops (XP then W7) before becoming disenchanted with the poor build quality of budget to mid-range consumer laptops and so bought a refurbished ThinkPad with W10 Pro at the back end of last year. Whether or not that proves to have been the right decision only time will tell but so far, so good.

    So, just one ThinkPad laptop in use for me, with a geriatric Lenovo W7 Home laptop kept in reserve.

    I Hate the Power Outages


    The reason why I hate the power outages is because using the laptops is considered the best for me. I carry my laptop for the on-the-go tasks.

    Plus, I am not interested in using the desktops.

    This is the Windows 10 General Support forum.

    Is there a support question you want to ask?

    Take Power From Your Car

    Since batteries do not use electricity to provide power, remember that they are available to use during an outage. This may include your car battery. Newer vehicles usually have USB charging ports for phones and computers, while older vehicles often have a power socket that special adapter chargers can plug into. When using this method, be sure to run your car in the driveway — well away from the house — and plug your phone or laptop into the car’s charging port.
    Safety tip: Remember, it’s never safe to leave a car running while parked inside the garage, even if the garage door is open. Make sure to move the car far away from the house to help prevent a carbon monoxide hazard.

    Have the laws of physics changed recently?

    Well, technically, batteries don't USE electricity, they produce it.

    So physics is still safe.

    Batteries still generate electrons by an electro-chemical process to provide electric current as far as I am aware.

    Electricity = a form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), either statically as an accumulation of charge or dynamically as a current.

    Exactly. Jacee said batteries don't USE electricity. Which is... true. They "generate" electricity.
