Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!
Can I ask what you mean by dealing with the built in battery? Are you looking to remove the battery and just use the AC adapter? I would suggest looking through this manual for your device to help with some of your questions.
Hope this helps and let us know how you get on.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community heshammonhamed !
In addition to Ryan-X's information there is a utility that you can use to limit the charging of your battery. That way you can keep your laptop plugged in without it constantly charging the battery. This will help improve the overall life of your battery.
I assume that you are using Windows 10. If so, check to see that you have the Lenovo Settings app and the Lenovo Companion app installed. Both are available in the Windows Store if they are not. Just do a search on "Lenovo" to quickly find them.
Once you have those apps installed, reboot your computer and open up the Lenovo Settings app. On the left side of your screen will be a battery icon. Click on that. The right side of your screen will now have the battery page. Scroll down to the middle of the page and you will see the Conservation Mode setting. Turn this setting On and it will limit the charge of your battery to 50 - 60% while it is plugged in. If you need to take your laptop portable, just turn the Conservation Mode setting Off to fully charge the battery.

Not that I am aware of. The laptop will run off the adapter / charger when it is plugged in while at the same time the charger / adapter will continuously maintain a 100% charge level on the battery. Conservation Mode allows the charger / adapter to maintain a lower charge level on the battery which promotes better battery life.

Hi Majestic. I was looking through the forum regarding ideapad 310 battery and came across this response about the conservation mode and thought I'd ask a question. I'm experiencing a completely dead battery and the laptop will no longer charge. I recently tried to turn on the battery conservation mode and since then the battery drained all the way down and not will not charge. It's weird. I've used this conservation mode in the past and no issues. But this last time when I tried to toggle the mode "on" I couldn't really tell if it switch or not. I didn't notice it was not charging until it shut down. I've check the adapter and it works fine. I've been told it is a bad motherboard, but I'm wondering if it is more than a coincidence that I toggle the conservation mode. Now I can't charge, and the is no charging light at all. Any thoughts? I appreciate any and all information. Thanks.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Have you tried using a compatible AC Adapter? Switching the conservation mode on should not stop your laptop from charging completely. Try to do a power drain by removing all connected devices (ac adapter, USB flash drive, etc.), shut it down and hold down the power button for 60 seconds. Turn it back on after a few minutes and observe.
