Well I've had my gaming laptop for a few months and was just wondering the best way to treat the battery, I game every  day or night and I've always got it plugged in. My query is should I unplug the wire from laptop and just leave battery plugged in to the wall or take battery out the wall completely at night??? Thank you for any replies.

Hi:

 

On today's notebooks they use smart batteries and smart chargers which means you can pretty much leave the charger connected to the battery at all times.

 

What I do is once a month, I unplug the charger from the notebook and run the battery down to the low battery warning and then I charge it up again.

 

HP has a document that provides tips for getting the most life out of your notebook's battery.   See the link below.

There is also this support document for testing and calibrating the battery.

Thanks for your reply mate. I've turned the power management state down a bit as well from 100% to 97% .I'm a single player gamer just been playing on comfort mode with max fans on  and I know this is a different issue but have the hp omen 10750h 2060rtx on a cooling pad using msi afterburner, playing sleeping dogs the on screen CPU  temp jumps around like crazy from between 65 to 88 ,wish it would stay settled so I could gauge it better. Is it possible turning down power state management can actually up temps as it feels like it was cooler at 100% but maybe I'm just being paranoid lol. Thanks again.

You're very welcome.

 

I recommend you start a new topic on that because I don't know what would be causing the huge temperature variations.
