Laptop batteries are generally made from Li-Ion (like my laptop), so I think it have a age range period between 4-5 years. How to maintain the performance of laptop batteries to keep it functioning properly? or How to maintain the durability of the laptop battery? This question sometimes phrased by laptop user’s, laptop battery as we know it’s one expensive element of laptop. The following simple tips that can be done to all users may apply to you.

Heat is one of the main enemy of a battery element, if you put the laptop on a soft pad such as pillow then the heat that comes out will be absorbed and it can interfere the heat circulation.
2. Use a Stable Electricity
When you charge the battery you should notice the electricity consumed by the adapter, avoid unstable electrical voltage.
3. Should the battery be removed?
The answer is Yes and No. If your laptop is equipped with ability to switch when the battery is fully charged, then it can immediately transferred to the power adapter, then remove the battery is unnecessarily. But if not, then you can remove the battery with the battery element lifetime consideration. You need to consider when going to remove the battery, Is your place have good electrical?
