    The first question that came to my mind is what kind of battery do you have? There are certain basics that I think apply to all batteries like never keep it in an area where the temperature is too cold or too hot. . but there is conditioning and calibration of batteries that help prolong its life and I think that each type of battery differs.

    well if ur not actually using the battery on your laptop and its plugged in you should take the battery out ''obviously if its fully charged'' as you are draining the life out of it. So when you really do need it or come to use it is life will not last too long. x

    Most modern laptops have lithium-ion batteries. Unlike older types of batteries you do not have to take special care ... all you have to make sure is to 'keep the juices flowing'.
    In other words: no need to make the laptop draining its battery before recharging. No need to fully charged the battery before using it off the plug again.
    Simply make sure you use the laptop every now and then.

    Apple has some good information which can be found here:
