I have always known, that the Li-ion battery should not be kept 100% charged. I got used to unplugging the charger at 100% and plug in back at about 20%. My new laptop manual, however, states as below:
To optimize battery life and avoid a sudden power loss, read the tips below:
- Suspend system operation if the system will be idle for a while or shorten the suspend timer’s time period.
- Turn off the system if you won’t be using it for a period of time.
- Disable unnecessary settings or remove idle peripherals.
- Connect an AC/DC adapter to the system whenever possible.
When fully charged, the hardware charging LED goes off, the
acpi command returns
Battery 0: Full, 100%. For many reasons it would be comfortable to me not to disconnect the charger, but I’m afraid it may shorten the battery life.
What do you think?
