Just got this laptop yesterday. My old laptop had a removable battery, so I would keep it plugged in and take the battery out to conserve its lifespan. The battery cannot be removed from this ideapad and I was not able to locate the settings for the battery (still getting used to Chrome OS). Just want a suggestion on when to charge and when to unplug to prolong the lifespan of the battery as long as possible. I use it at home so the duration it lasts is not an issue.
Should I only charge it when the battery gets low and unplug at 100%? How can I change the settings?
Not that knowledgeable on the subject, so thanks in advance for any help.

The best thing to do is to keep in in the charger and once a month let it discharge till 20%. It's much better to discharge a little bit and charge it again when it hits like 60 to 80%. This is the best way to preserve the battery life.
