Keeping computer plugged in all the time

My laptop is basically used on my desk and is plugged in/charging all the time. Will this type of use negatively effect the battery and shorten its' life? What other positive/negative effects will this have on the laptop?

Re: Keeping computer plugged in all the time

djfro,

Personally, I keep my laptops plugged in all the time. I have never had any issues.

These batteries can not be overcharged, which means that as soon as they are 100% charged, they stop charging. These batteries stop receiving energy which is bypassed directly to your laptop's power supply. So, keeping it plugged in won't harm your battery and cause much difference to the overall battery life.
