Preserving battery life Taken from http://www.batteryuniversity.com/parttwo-34.htm • We have already completed the most important step. • Keep the lithium-ion battery cool. Avoid a hot car. For prolonged storage, keep the battery at a 40% charge level. • Consider removing the battery from a laptop when running on fixed power. (Some laptop manufacturers are concerned about dust and moisture accumulating inside the battery casing.) • Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery. • Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than one deep one
