Hi!
I recently got Asus G750JZ and I am wondering if I am doing this right or should I change it and if so what?

When I play games I put my battery OUT of the laptop as the temperature destroys it first.
When I am at home or somewhere where I can have constant electricity I have it plugged it without the battery.
When I am somewhere where I do not have the option of plugging it somewhere I of course have it on the battery and then when I stop using it, which usually happens around 20-10ish % I plug it in to 100% and then put it out as I go and plug it into electricity again and use it till I am going to be without one and be forced to use the battery again.

Now I am wondering. Is this ok or should I change something?

Thank you for the help.

navis995, you really don't need to keep pulling the battery in / out, it isn't making any difference in the life of the battery - except you are wearing the contacts, release mechanism, and endangering the laptops/battery contacts by leaving them exposed to the elements.

Not to mention losing all that work when you accidentally kick out the power cable :)

Macbooks live with their batteries internal, and have been doing it for years. The G750 battery doesn't even get hot when on AC - even under heavy load the battery stays cool. Macbook batteries get HOT, and work just fine.

The new G751 has a non-removable battery, so Asus thinks that is ok, you should too :)

If you have more than 1 battery, like me when I traveled with 3 batteries, then you want to rotate the batteries through the laptop on a regular basis to keep the charge/discharge wear even across them.

So if you do use battery often, I would get at least one more battery and rotate them for even wear across both. Plus if you rely on battery for much of your use, you really need to have a 2nd battery available - I have occasionally had a battery fail and without 2nd and 3rd backup's I would have been screwed - if I needed 2 batteries worth of time every day, I would keep a 3rd battery around in case 1 died.

Modern charging and batteries should stay on the charger when not in use - there is no advantage to taking the battery out of the charger.
