Default Battery Question - 01-24-2009, 08:23 PM

Yes Yes, there are many battery questions around and I was researching and couldn't find a thread connected my question so here I go.

Basically, when I charge my battery up to 100% should I take it out and then use AC power after that?
I am one of those people who would use my dell mini on the go and take the battery w/o my charger because I know that there isn't a power source everywhere.

:?: thanks for the help

AFAIK, you can leave the battery in while plugged into AC power. The battery will stop charging once it's full.

Yea I read about that one, I guess I'll just leave it in there, though it seems like a never ending cycle
thanks

Lithium-Ion batteries are designed to be used in this fashion. Don't worry about it.
