I have a dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop. I was wondering if it's ok that i leave the charger plugged in even when the laptop isnt on charge. I've only had the laptop a short time and dell already had to send me a replacment charger. Becuase the other one burned out. Was that becuase i left it plugged in or because its faulty?


Thanks in advance for any posts.

The only problem that I can think of is that the lithium battery likes to be charged frequently in small amounts apposes to the old nicad which worked best if you ran them down prior to recharging.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What you asked in your first post and what you are now asking are two different questions, no wonder you weren't satisfied with our answers. In short no.
