I have a company issued laptop and it is an HP Compaq 6910p. My question is about the battery. As my personal laptop's battery lasts less than 35 minutes (its 3.5 years old), the time I get from this laptop is amazing, usually ~3.15 - 3.50 hours and I would like to keep it that way. I know that one can use the battery without the battery in it and that would put less wear on the battery, right? I take my laptop home with full charge and in the morning start using it without the power plugged in and when it drains to less than 10%, I recharge it and then unplug, drain it to 10%. Is this something I should or should not do to preserve battery life? Anyone know?
