Do not drain your laptop battery.

Unread post by oflguy »

Most laptops are either lithium ion or lithium polymer batteries. And they have finite number of charge discharge cycles. A general misconception is that charging your battery all the time while you work will harm it

No. It will not. Once a battery is @100% , the charger port will rout the incoming power directly to the power supply of the laptop bypassing the battery. Analogous to using a laptop without a battery while connected to power source.

Do not drain your battery. It does more harm.

Anyways whatever you do , the average difference in life of similar batteries would be a max of 8–10 months depending on usage.
