when I plug my laptop in the battery is charging, the system is still safe to use even though it is charging? When my battery is getting low is it ok to plug it in to the outlet to use, while it is still on or do I have to turn it off first? Also do I have to turn my laptop off before disconnecting it from the adapter to use it as a laptop?

Question 1. Yes the battery will charge while you use the laptop. 2. When the battery gets low you can plug it in at anytime and it will switch to outlet power and start charging the battery. 3. No you don't need to turn off the laptop to unplug it, it will automatically switch to battery power when the cord is unplugged.

these tips apply to almost all rechargable batteries

if stored for any length of time it's best to do so with a full charge

it's better from time to time to run the battery low and then let it have a full charge

high heat or extreme cold is bad for them

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
