Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Laptop battery I have a dell laptop that i have had for about 5 month. I just about allways leave it plugged in to the outlet. Will this reduce the battery life by constantly charging? or does it not charge when connected to the outlet? Thanks


Answers :

My Inspiron 6300 has always been plugged in and is circa 20 months old. I now find the unplugged unit (when moving from room to room) only lasts about 3 minutes from a full charge. Care should be taken with laptops if majority in charge. However, my Latitude is three years old and gets a mixture of on and off charge (docked via a port replicator) has been fine for about 30 months still giving out a respectable 3 or so hours use.
I have an ei systems 4411 left it plugged in to the mains all of the time and as a result overcharged the battery so be careful.
