Default Laptop with no battery

Is it safe to remove the battery and run the laptop off of the power stip?

I want to do this for 2 reasons:
1) I want my battery to last as long as possiable (batterys cost alot of $$), and I heard if you never unplug the laptop the battery life goes down.
2) I dont want my laptop to do this: (explode)

So what you guys think I should do? Keep the battery in or leave it out?

BTW my laptop can run without a battery. idk if all laptops can.

i wouldnt bother . i have never bothered doing this with any of my laptops and they have never exploded . and it is natural for the battery to loose strength after after a while anyway so i wouldnt worry . batteries can be cheap if you look on e bay as well

In case you didn't know, when your battery is recharged, and you run off the AC, the AC will provide current. The battery won't kick in until you unplug the cord.

Yeah, exactly. Therefore taking out the battery is pointless..

Hahahaha I love the comment on the video:

Hmm... I keep my battery in 24/7 when I'm running off AC power and nothing's happened.
