The bid is for 10 articles on the subject of laptop batteries plus a 7-articles report on the same subject.
First of all the articles for the site itself:
5 of them will explain how to optimize the hardware of your laptop so that your battery will last more hours without being recharged (eg. adding more RAM, decreasing the contrast of the display). Another 5 will explain the same, only using the software (optimizing Windows, turning off hardware, etc.)
The report will be on the subject of "How to increase your battery life tips" and will include the following 7 articles:
1. Charging the battery for the first time.
2. How to store your battery (if you won't use it for a month or so..)
3. What not to do with your battery. Example: Do not short-circuit a battery, Do not drop, hit or otherwise abuse the battery... plus a short description of each one of these.
4. Exercise your battery. Example: if you remove your battery, charge it and discharge it every 3-4 weeks it will prolong its life.
5. Can I use a newer chemistry battery?
6. When should I change the old battery?
7. How long will my battery last?
The goal of each article is to be interesting and useful
Professional writing skills are required. I would like to see well-written, well-formatted articles that would look like they were taken from some top-notch tech magazine.
Each article should be about 300-350 words. It should be something that everyone can read and easily understand in 2-3 minutes. So keep it clean, fun without any rocket-science language, concentrate on how the text flows...
These articles will be all part of one web site so make them look like they are part of one site.
