Running on AC after full charge

HP Notebook - 15-ba009dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new HP notebook but it did not have a user's manual. Is it OK to continue running on AC power after the battery if fully charged? Does it damage the battery or degrade it's performance to leave the computer connected to AC power after the battery is fully charged? Thanks.

Hi,


No it'll not, due to the modern battery technologies

You might want to prevent and look for any overheating though.

Read this through to understand lithium-ion battery technology: http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c00596784

You replied "No, it'll not ..." but is that your answer to my first question or the second question? (I assume the second, but just want to comfirm). Thanks.

Thanks for your replies. I'm really not interested in reading a lot of technical info. I just wanted to know if it's OK to continue running the notebook on AC power even after the battery is fully charged. I have a cooling platform/stand that will help against overheating, so I don't think that will be an issue. Again, thanks for your help.

That would be enough.

Manually calibrate battery once in 3-4 months

Hi, @Jeff_W51 :

 

I would not leave the battery fully charged and plugged in all the time.

 

This is directly copied and pasted from the first very helpful link that Visruth posted...

 

Remove the battery from the notebook if the notebook will be plugged into AC power continuously (via a wall adapter or docking station) for more than 2 weeks.

 

Now, I keep one of my notebooks normally in one place at all times, plugged in.

 

So every two weeks, I unplug it, and let it run off the battery until I get the low battery warning, even though I don't move the notebook.

 

Then I charge it up again and repeat the process.

 

That way, I don't have to remove the battery as suggested.
