Why did my HP gaming laptop's battery die?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming 15t-cx0000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello I'm writing to inquire about the nature of using my laptop while plugged in? The first time I had my laptop I used to always use it plugged in because I liked to use it in bed- even for gaming just so it doesn't lose power. 


When I would go to sleep I'd leave the charger plugged and just use it again. Is this necessarily safe for the battery? Because my HP Pavilions battery degraded to about 80% charge after approximately 1.3-1.5 years with about 200 some recharge cycles only being applied to the battery and that's relatively abnormal. 


I already replaced said battery with a third party one of the same specifications of the OEM one since HP did not have any in stock. 

Here is my laptop specs if it helps:

I7 8750H 

GTX 1050 TI

16gb DDR4 2666MHZ RAM


2TB Western digital 2.5inch drive.


To rule out that it WAS the OEM battery, the laptop no longer shuts off by itself randomly with the new replaced battery. 

I want to take precautions for longevity because it seems like I can't use it for its intended purpose- gaming- if I want it to last an additional 3yrs.

All batteries WILL die, sooner or latter depending the number of charging cycles. To be able to keep it 3 more years, you can REDUCE charging cycles to say twice a week or even once a week depending how many cycles now.


Please use the following ways to check its battery first
