Should I keep my laptop battery plugged in all the time.

If you are wondering whether you should I keep my laptop battery plugged in all the time then if have a modern laptop or notebook with a lithium-ion or lithium-polymer then the battery cannot be overcharged as it has circuitry that prohibits this. A bigger problem is the battery getting hot. The simple way to avoid this is to make sure that the cooling slots or vents on your laptop or notebook Laptop Battery Plugged In All The Timeare not covered. This may sound obvious but the vents often are slots that are not only on the side of the device bout they rap round underneath. So placing the laptop on soft furniture can block up to half the cooling vents. This is particularly important in high ambient temperatures. Think about the heater on a train or your central heating at home or work or if you place the laptop on your lap.
