      What are your peoples’ opinions on leaving the laptop battery in while the laptop is plugged in? Does it deplete the battery’s life, or does it just make it warm?

      warm. you don’t want to wear out the contacts. plus the battery needs deep discharged at least once a month if not once weekly. I mean completely dischaged to the point of shutdown. and charge it for 8-16 hours or the manufacturer recommended.

      I also recommend loking for batteries that have twice the milliamperage, they will give you twice the battery life.

          Don’t leave it in all the time, as it will overcharge and be useless for when you actually need it..

          Be sure to use it all and recharge it once every few weeks to maintain it, but that’s it.

            Hi,

            A little late to the topic but it’s safe to leave the battery in while the laptop is plugged into the powergrid.

            It won’t overheat as the power charge cycling is actually electronically monitored.
            Some cheaper batteries need the occasional deep discharge (just like an electrolytic capacitor would) but modern Lithium ion batteries don’t need that.

            Should you use a battery that does require a deep discharge then there maybe software tools around to achieve that. Some manufacturers supply these on HD, others prefer to have this done on site.

            Cheers,
