Does keeping lap top plugged in ruin it..

Recommended Posts

We keep ours plugged in all the time. It's never unplugged unless we go somewhere and take it. Then it will hold the charge for a few hours.

I have been in It for 20 years and leaving the laptop plugged in will not drain the battery. The battery life on a laptop will begin to deplete after one year anyway. If you are concerned about the battery life, remove the battery and run on AC power. Most are fairly easy to remove. Leaving the laptop plugged in will not ruin the laptop. Mine is plugged in and turned on 24/7.

yeah thanks for the advice...i've always been told not to keep it switched on...but, like earlier tonight, ran it down and forgot i had got the "only 10% battery left" warning...and it switched off on me!grrr luckily it resumed from where i left off once it got some charge in it!


I'll not hesitate to keep mine on charge for as long as i like now! although the heat that comes off my viao on charge is unreal!

It depends if it's lithium-ion or nickle cadmium


li-ion tips:


Unlike Ni-Cd batteries, lithium-ion batteries should be charged early and often. However, if they are not used for a long time, they should be brought to a charge level of around 40%–60%. Lithium-ion batteries should not be frequently fully discharged and recharged ("deep-cycled") like Ni-Cd batteries, but this is necessary after about every 30th recharge to recalibrate any external electronic "fuel gauge" (e. g. State Of Charge meter). This prevents the fuel gauge from showing an incorrect battery charge.[21]

Li-ion batteries should never be depleted to below their minimum voltage, 2.4 V to 3.0 V per cell.

Li-ion batteries should be kept cool. Ideally they are stored in a refrigerator. Aging will take its toll much faster at high temperatures. The high temperatures found in cars cause lithium-ion batteries to degrade rapidly.

Li-ion batteries should not be frozen [37] (most lithium-ion battery electrolytes freeze at approximately −40 °C; however, this is much colder than the lowest temperature reached by household freezers).

Li-ion batteries should be bought only when needed, because the aging process begins as soon as the battery is manufactured.[21]

When using a notebook computer running from fixed line power over extended periods, the battery should be removed,[38] and stored in a cool place so that it is not affected by the heat produced by the computer.


and one i want to add- get one of those cool things to set the laptop on. they plug into the usb & keep the computer from getting too hot.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
