Laptop Battey Charging


Standard Member
Hi I need a bit of advice i purchased a dell laptop about 6 months ago and i never use the battery i got with it as i use it as a desktop. The battery has never been charged and is as new.

My question is should I charge this top keep the batteries level at its optimum? or does it not matter about ever charging it? If i should charge it should i do this a certain amount of times every 6months etc?

thanks in advance

Its more a case of charge and discharge. Really if you do charge the battery you want to make sure every now and again you fully discharge it, run it flat. Constant max charge can wear them out. The battery if never used should remain in a fairly good state but if you were ever to use it you would want to do the charge/discharge cycle a few times to get it to optimum capacity.
