Laptop Battery Care Guidelines

  1. Memory effect does not affect lithium-ion batteries, only older Nickel-Cadmium batteries.
  2. Keeping battery fully charged and power supply plugged in is harmful to your computer and battery only because of heat. The heat is battery enemy not 100% of charge.
  3. Avoid full battery discharge (lithium-ion) - frequent discharge to 25%-35% of the capacity level is recommended over full discharge. Don't "deep-cycle" like Ni-Cd.
