Maximize Battery Life Run on AC Power No battery?

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?

You can try this option:

It's on the Lenovo Energy Management (the bright button on next to the right speaker) --> Click on the "mechanical weel" on the bottom --> Choose the second option.

... And read the hint on that screen for more information.
