Hi, I recently purchased an Ideapad y560 and I was just wondering how to maximize the battery life and the Laptop's wellbeing.
I read the thread
which has a lot of information on battery life except it is 2 years old.
With my current Hp laptop I take the battery out at 35% and leave it in a ziploc while running the laptop on AC power with no battery connected. I then try to charge the battery to full after 2 weeks and then kill it back to 35% to restore it. Is this still the best way to run laptops if the laptop will not need to run on battery power for 1-2 weeks?
