Default Question about Laptop Batteries

When I use my laptop with the AC Adaptor, should I take the battery out or leave it in? I thought that if it was plugged in all the time, it might shorten the batteries life. I leave it in when it's charging of course.

I was just wondering. It's probably daft question Thanks in advance.

It doesn't really make a difference all too much if you leave it in or out. It's Li-Ion right? Li-Ions can take a lot of stress before they start to get damaged. If you're worried about losing battery life you can go ahead and take it out.

I take my battery out when using AC power at home on my desk. When going out, I put my battery back in.
