Legion Y530 Plugged in always?

Hi! I just bought a Legion Y530 mainly for Adobe Apps and some gaming. Recently I've charged the laptop to 100%, removed the charger, went to Power Saver mode, and the battery lasted for an hour or so, then I plugged in again. I was guessing/estimating that with this usage/routine I would charge and discharge my laptop for at least 2-3 times a day. Would this be okay? Or should I always keep my laptop plugged in when using Adobe Apps and Gaming even if it's fully charged? Thanks a lot!

Hi lzrs26,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


It would be better for your battery life if you have it plugged in most of the time rather than using up the discharge rates. Battery life span is measured on the times of charge and discharge, thus using up its life cycle on 2-3 times charging routine decrease battery life.


Modern machine are equipped with chips that automatically shifts power utilization to AC mode for longer battery life.


I hope this helps answer your query.
