Hi All,

For my notebook computer, when at home should I use the battery until its all gone then plug into the wall, or should I always plug into the wall? I heard if battery power doesn't get used the battery can go bad quickly.

Please advise.

Thanks a lot.

i leave my laptop plugged in, then once a month drain the battery, it seems to work. I have heard both, and the lazy way is to just leave it plugged in.

Modern laptops have good "smart" battery chargers built in.

The battery will not "go bad" as you suggest, if it is not frequently used.

When you want to use it on battery, do so.
When you are near a plug, use it.

Hi folks, thank you for all your inputs. My previous laptop's battery chip somehow burned out and it was too costly to replace it, that's why I am asking this question. Sounds like I should both plug it in and use the battery.

I will let you know if it gets burned again.
