Razer Blade 14” (2013) Support
|Where can I get my security update for Razer Blade system?|
|Razer is aware of the vulnerabilities discovered by external researchers on some of the Intel microprocessors installed in our Razer Blade laptop line. We are closely collaborating with Intel to address potential vulnerabilities before they can even be exploited.
As part of our commitment to customers, Razer's engineers are working with Intel to address these issues with firmware updaters. You may refer to the table below to see if your specific Razer Blade model is affected and where to get its corresponding updater.
Note: The links in the table below contain the installation guides that will walk you through the installation process. The installation guide will also contain the download link to the specific updater. We will be updating this table periodically. If you are unable to locate a fix for your particular Blade system, it is possible that your laptop may not be affected.
|Will I overcharge my battery if I leave it plugged in even when it is at 100%?|
|The Razer Blade series uses a lithium-ion (Li-On) polymer battery. Though this is not exactly a Windows feature, overcharging Li-ion batteries is not a problem and does not affect the battery life span. The Blade laptops have an internal circuit to stop charging at full charge to avoid overcharging, and will only start re-charging when the battery hits 95%.|
|What should I do to maintain the power adapter's good condition and extend its life span?|
|To keep your power adapter in good condition and extend its life span, check this guide.|
|How do I replace the battery in my Razer Blade Laptop?|
|Razer Blade batteries should be replaced by an authorized Razer Repair Center. Should you feel your battery is defective and needs replacing, please contact the Razer Support team here and we will be happy to assist you.|
