Should I remove my laptop battery when plugged in to lengthen its life span?
By Jeandre de Beer
Can you improve your battery life if you remove the battery when you are connected to the power outlet?
It’s one of those questions that have no right or wrong answer. For every answer out there, there are arguments for and against it.
I remove my laptop’s battery when I am connected to the power outlet and I only insert it when I am travelling.
It’s always better for batteries to discharge to about 20% before recharging them.
