just got a new laptop the other day and as yet i haven't used it on the battery. i just have it plugged into the mains all the time. my wife asked me if it was ok to leave it plugged in all the time and to be honest, i don't know. what is the best thing to do? it will be rarely used out of the house and was purchased as a second computer, because of the amount of time my wife spends on the desktop in the other room. i have looked at this on the net and some say it is fine to leave it plugged in all the time but others say don't do it as it will over-charge the battery and it can explode!!!
any ideas guys?

Hello

What make of laptop is it? some are more stable than others. I had my laptop plugged into the mains all the time. that is until the adaptor broke. I would imagine that it is perfectly safe to leave it plugged in as long as the battery is removed and the lapotop is well ventilated.

Hope this helps
Regards,

Alan.

its a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V3405. it is well ventilated but i don't take the battery out. i thought it might just charge when needed. like a mobile phone, you can use it while it is charging and when it is fully charged it stops charging.

Its a very similar concept, but the laptop will always be discharging its battery even at 100% charged it wont do noticible damage, but the laptops battery will stay on for shorter times as the battery is worn out.
