Hope this is the right place for this.
Should the battery be taken out if using the Laptop with supplied power cord most the time. I use my laptop at home and leave it plugged in, I put the battery in once a month just to keep it charged.

I've had my laptop and several others solely on the AC power cord without any issues for almost 5 years. With my laptop it would heat up faster if I kept my battery in, so I took mine out. The only issue is a slight balance issue with the lift I have for my laptop, its smaller than the base, and there's a nice space where the battery should be.

Yes, as the article says, you do not want to leave your computer plugged in for long periods of time, especially if you are using it. This will cause the battery to lose charge very quickly. It is recommended to power cycle once a month, meaning the computer is full charged and then completely drained and then fully charged. This allows the full capacity of the battery to be detected. This article does indicate not to drain the battery to 0%, which is something I have never heard of. Typically, if you are going to plug your computer in for a long period of time, remove the battery so it will last longer.

No there is no need to pulling out the battery , it save you from high voltage or power. It could be harm if you direct plugin your laptop to power.
I would have to disagree. Everywhere I have read, everyone agrees to take the battery out if you plan on leaving the laptop plugged in all the time. This is because leaving the battery in only generates more heat and heat to the battery will shorten its life span. If you live in an area where there are frequent voltage spikes or drop, then it would be a good idea to keep the battery in. For most of us, this isn't a problem.
