is it better to run a laptop off the battery or to take the battery out when you can plug it into the wall?
we bought our first laptop. we know you can run it off the wall plug when not traveling, but will that hurt the battery or is it best to take the battery out unless it is needed?

If you leave the laptop plugged in all the time, it is best to remove the battery when it is fully charged.
It is also a good idea to USE it on Battery, If you don't exercise the battery once in a while it will fail. Use the Battery until it goes down to about 20% remaining then charge it.
You should do this at least once a week to keep the battery in good condition.Source(s): Experience.
