How to extend battery life?

Hi,

 

Will it extend my battery life if I would take it out of my HP ProBook and work only on A/C power?

Re: How to extend battery life?

Ooskars,

 

Welcome to the HP Forum.

 

Your battery will benefit from being used.

 

Some notebooks contain what is called a "sealed" battery compartment.  For systems of this type, one does not open the compartment unless necessary.

 

At least once a month you might unplug the AC power from the notebook and run the computer on battery until the battery is mostly drained.
