u/German_Drive Dec 08 '21

I leave mine constantly plugged in in order to get better performance and safe battery lifespan until I actually need it.

16

u/TheRealSmolt hates reaction memes Dec 08 '21

Uhh keeping batteries at full charge is actually pretty bad for them. If you want it plugged in all the time, I'd suggest discharging it somewhat and removing it.

15

u/German_Drive Dec 08 '21

Of course overcharging is quite harmful. I am the kind of person who keeps their phone in 20-80 range.

Lenovo laptops actually have a battery preservation mode, which keeps it at 59% despite being constantly plugged in. An amazing feature for a gaming laptop, I honestly can't imagine using one without it.

2

u/idkjustsomeuser Breaking EU Laws Dec 08 '21

I have an msi laptop that also does it. Gaming laptops in general don’t last long unplugged but still a good feature

2

u/DaniilSan Dec 08 '21

Overcharging is bad but manufacturers are not stupid and most PSUs and piwer controllers can handle with it. Anyway, different types of batteries differently react on this. All smartphones and laptops nowdays use Lithium-Ion battaties and overcharge isn't that dangerous for them unlike lead ones, but undercharge when they become completely empty are really harmful for them. For example, my laptop's battary reached this point few times and when I tried to recharge them, it took like 8 hours from complete 0 to 100, though normally it tooks about 2 hours.

1

u/TheRealSmolt hates reaction memes Dec 08 '21

My concern isn't overcharging, it's keeping the battery at full charge without using it. Prolonged storage at full storage can damage batteries.

1

u/DaniilSan Dec 08 '21

Well, it may look like they are at full storage but actually they are discharging a d charging by small amounts. If you have sorta modern laptop, you more likely have nothing to worry about, if your laptop is like from 00s or early 10s then it depends on model. In short, it isn't actually what you really should worry about

1

u/TheRealSmolt hates reaction memes Dec 08 '21

Even more the reason to take the battery out (if you can).

1

u/DaniilSan Dec 08 '21

Why?

1

u/TheRealSmolt hates reaction memes Dec 08 '21

Because it's wasting cycles...

1

u/DaniilSan Dec 08 '21

Cycles are from complete 100 to comple 0. It is Lithium-Ion they are immune to such small "cycles" unlike old ones so again, it isn't what you should worry about

u/Lkwzriqwea Dec 08 '21

Plugging your laptop in 24/7 is ironically what is probably causing it to due forever. Overcharging degrades the battery's ability to hold charge.

u/My_neutered_cat Dec 08 '21

I have to do that because my battery is broken and I haven’t bought a new one

u/Scrambledeggs0-0 Dec 08 '21

I did but my laptop is old so it broke the battery and now it has to be plugged in 24/7 or else it will only last 5min

For the 13 series I have to say … they’re actually the best ones out there, especially the battery on the iPhone 13 Pro Max, never have I ever experienced something like this with something that „only“ had a little over 4000mAh

I have the Pro Max and the battery is actually amazing.

u/TheAntiAirGuy Breaking EU Laws Dec 08 '21

The phone generally is amazing

a lot of people criticise it because firstly, it’s Apple and secondly because it looks like the other 2 older generations, but the software and internal hardware, oh man, what a time to switch from Android to Apple

u/rpstforhire Dec 08 '21

Depends on the condition of the battery.

For example my iPhone 5 would last me all day after replacing the old battery in it. Generally after 3 years the battery degradation becomes very noticeable but it kinda depends on how heavily you use your device.

u/thowaway33333 Dec 08 '21

Yeah, like what’s even the point of it being portable then?

I can set my laptop to the highest performance setting, and it’ll still drop frames if it isn’t plugged in. But plug it in, and suddenly it’ll run whatever I want it to flawlessly.

2

u/Reventon103 Selling Stonks for CASH MONEY Dec 09 '21

Can you carry around a gaming rig in your backpack?

That’s what portable means for Powerful laptops. I need to use some demanding software in college, but i can’t carry around a desktop, so a laptop with an i9 that always needs to be plugged in is better
