[all variants] Proper laptop battery care

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I am curious about the best way to take care of a laptop battery. I've had a gazelle professional (gazp6) for a little over a month now. I run it a lot on battery, but sometimes I leave it plugged in for many hours after it is done charging because I am doing intensive tasks that work better when the machine is plugged in. I've been reading online about laptop battery care and some places say to take the battery out of the laptop if you are leaving it plugged in for a long time to prevent it from overcharging or something... Should I be doing this? Doesn't the laptop divert power (Hardware)
