Hi, Can you settle an argument please, I say that you should use the Mains supply for your laptop when it's possible to, and not the battery all the time. Which is correct please.....Val

Yes, just use battery now and again, but when you use it let it go on battery until its about 15% left in before recharging it

PS Best way if you are using it like a Desktop, Charge the battery then remove it and put in a clean plastic bag, put on one of the middle shelves of your refrigerator NOT FREEZER, Battery will only need topping up on rare occasions and will last for several years in good order
