I don't really like my laptop now because of battery's problem, and it's expensive to buy new one. I always charge it most of the say because it will only last 1 hour of straight use after fully charge. Before, i removed the battery and just plug it in just like computer, now I just leave the battery in it and just charge while using it.
Its okay for me to plug it in but, I have kids with me and they easily can reach the cord as we don't have computer room so they can't touch my stuff, especially its electric.
I know my battery is sucks any, so I just leave it while charging and removed the charger when it's fully charged. I think the half of the day it will plug into the wall. I always watchful and precautions since its not safe at all to charge it while battery is on, it will downgrade the life expectany of it.
