Lenovo Ideapad 320s charging recommendations

2019-03-04, 0:26 AM

Good day to you all!

 

Is it ok to leave the charger plugged in when the battery is at 100% charged.

 

I am using the laptop for gaming (starcraft).

 

Also, may I ask if it is ok to run on AC power all the time?

 

My concern is that the laptop has a non removable battery and I am afraid that if I kept on using it on AC power and the battery is at 100%, it might shorten the lifespan of the battery.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Have a nice day!

Hi James61588,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It is ok to keep it plugged as the machine switches direct ac for its power and not with the battery prolonging the battery life.

 

The charging- discarging rate is is not being diminished. Modern laptops nowadays have special chip and firmware to help users extend their battery longer specially with heavy usage.

 

Heat is always a factor for battery life so just keep your machine cooled at most  times with enough ventilation and open vents for good airflow. 

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards
