I have a fairly new Acer laptop and I almost always use it at home where I have easy access to AC. I have been running it on battery power and then charging it when the notice prompts me to. I use my laptop many hours a day so the discharge and charge cycle happens 2 or 3 times a day.
I recently read an article that claims laptop batteries have a life of approx. 1000 charges - i.e. when the battery has discharged and then re-charged approx. 1000 times, the battery life is over and it's time for a new battery (I don't even know if it's possible to replace the battery in my Acer). Is this claim true? Also, does it make sense for me to just keep my laptop plugged in to AC?
Thank you for your time.
