Aspire A715-72G-74HL- Will battery life lower if the laptop is always plugged in while at 100%?

KalachKalach Posts: 8Member New User
I got a Acer Aspire 7 model A715-72G-74HL and I heard from a guy at the IT store that if i have my laptop plugged in while at 100% that the power bypasses the battery and doesn't lower it's capacity and  lifespan over time. And that I should charge my laptop only when it is turned off and not in use as it won't decrease it's lifetime and that I should empty out the battery sometimes and charge it while the laptop is turned off.

I haven't heard of those things before and would like to hear if it is true for me also.
Please tell me which question you can help me with so I don't mix them up.
Thanks in advance, any help is much appreciated as i had trouble finding answers for my specific questions.

    Hi, Good Morning! Kindly find the battery life information below.
     There is no "average" value for duration.Numerous factors will interfere with the duration which mainly depends on how the user is using the machine.

             First, understand better about the architecture of a notebook.Notebook components (especially processor and video) only achieve maximum performance when plugged into a power outlet.This time may vary due to a number of factors: air-conditioned packaging with cooler or cooler temperatures, the sum of the applications you have on your machine running, background services, and more.

    See the following scheme:
    OS Configuration + Applications + Services = Requirements
    Requests consume resources.
    Resources are all types of physical memories (hard drives and storage devices), volatiles (RAM and video), processors (CPU and GPU), and connections (Wireless, USB, etc.) available on your system.
    The more requests, the more resources are spent and consequently the energy consumption increases.
    As such, there are several configuration factors that may be undermining your battery power.

    The 2 biggest power consumers in a notebook are the display and the wireless system.This Wireless System understands any and all requests made by your equipment to the connection point (router, modem or access point).
    These include beacons, direct access (such as accessing a web page, online videos or an online game) and indirect access (such as setam's google update services, among others).

    Ideally, always use the appliance plugged in and the power options set to "High Performance".Using only on battery power, the system architecture does not allow maximum machine performance to be achieved.

    To improve this duration, you can follow some tips by performing certain processes:

    1) Set the notebook to power options for economy mode when using battery only;
    2) Select the option to decrease monitor brightness when on battery power;
    3) Use the appliance in a ventilated place so that the product does not overheat;
    4) Perform initial cell calibration as stated in the product manual.
        
          Also check the link below and check and for the upgrades for your unit.They are Crucial and they guarantee compatibility with your exact model. Kindly write down the part number and then order from Amazon, it's cheaper and has fast delivery.

          I hope that this is helpful to you! If I have answered your question kindly click YES, Thank you :)

    Thank you and have a Blessed Day  :3

    Hi,

    There's no danger of a battery being overcharged if you leave it plugged in all the time. As soon as it hits 100%, it will cease charging and won't start again until the voltage falls below a certain level. 

    As laptop is a portable device, you can unplug the charger if you are using it in a different place.

    So, there is no damage being done to the battery if it is plugged in even at 100%? 

    I have been always told otherwise, eas that the case with older technologies?
