Re: is this bad for the laptop?

You can unplug the battery and store it away but as people have stated there are several negative effects this can have on both the battery and laptop.
No matter what you do the battery will die over time. With this in mind and the effects of unplugging the battery and storing it away compared to leaving it plugged in. The best thing to do is to just leave the battery plugged in and have energy management set to best battery health. This will guarantee you a happy system and long battery life.

Re: is this bad for the laptop?

yes i agree with what both of you "countrywise" and "BrownEy02" said. There are some negatives on keeping battery unplugged, there is no otherway battery will die overtime, All we can do is we can set to "best battery health" mode.

 

In setting this "best battery health" also i have one uncleared doubt. 

1)What happens when charge capacity reaches 50% ? My system shows  as "plugged in, not charging".


Does this mean like after reaching 50% charge the laptop gets power from AC adapter and keep battery unused / idle?

 

If this is right then "best battery health" is definitely a boon to save the battery life.

Re: is this bad for the laptop?

Well Krishad,

 

if after reaching 50% charge,the laptop then were kept idle/battery unused,

 

then the battery should NOT show a decrease,e.g should  always read 50%.

 

But it doesn't.

 

Mine at least,  for example keeps decreasing.

 

At the moment it is down to 48%,with AC adapter

 

always plugged in.

 

So my guess is that the battery still gets used,but less so.

 

so it decreases slowly,bit by bit.

Hi... a idle unused rechargeable battery loses about 1% of its charge every 2-3 days (self-discharge)...
