Battery vs. AC

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 15-au20wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I just purchased this computer.  I have been told it is better to remove the battery if you are leaving your notebook plugged into AC most of the time, which I do.  However, this new computer has a sealed battery, so I don't think removing it is either possible or a good idea.  Opinions?

Hi:

 

If the notebook has a sealed battery, or it would be difficult to remove and replace it, what I do is this...

 

Every two weeks I remove the PC from the A/C adapter and run it off the battery until I get the low battery notification.

 

Then I plug in the adapter and repeat this process every two weeks.

 

Here is HP's link regarding how to get the most out of your notebook's battery...
