View Full Version : Power/Battery question

05-28-2011, 08:14 PM
Being my 1st laptop , was curious when i bought the beast the salesman said if i was going to use as a desktop replacement to NOT put the battery in at all , just AC. Only on extended vacations and occasional drunken raoming about the yard , it will stay put and be plugged in .

Is this good practice ..?

Nope bad idea...the battery pack needs to be constantly charge...if you dont charge it for a while it will probably wont hold charge anymore...ASUS dont even recommend having a spare battery cause the spare will go bad eventualy unless you have a way of charging it ouside the notebook...

Even if i never used the battery , its been plugged in since day 1 , havent even unwrapped it yet ....
