Dear all,
 
   I would like to know if there is a way to avoid the battery to be charged while the laptop is plugged in with an electricity source. I am using a Samsung Laptop.  

Regards,
Ming

Hi

The only way I know of is to remove the battery.

Hope that helps.

That's exactly what I don't prefer. Thanks for your reply, though.

i've been annoyed by same problem because this brand's laptop battery life is too short.

my approach is same as uucknaaa, everytime i use external power supply, i remove the battery.

Hi

We do try to exercise the entire cycle of the battery.  In other words, I'll use it until it asks to be charged and then plug it in.  Just got a new Sony and with it came a mobility pack that includes an extra battery.  I've been thinking about coming up with a new strategy.
