Hello everyone.

I am looking for the pros and cons of taking out my laptop battery. There's nothing wrong with it at this time. I very seldom use the laptop on battery power.

What do you think?

Personally, I'd leave it in. Most newer laptops use Lithium batteries, and they like to be fully charged.

In all my previous and in my current laptops I have left the battery in, although it's seldom used on battery.

Laptops have smart charging circuitry that does not cause battery damage by leaving them on charge. And if the power goes off, your work is not lost....

Hello John and Kiwiguy.

Thanks very much for your advice. I'll leave the battery where it is. :)
