laptop battery life

444 6
I bought myself this Acer Aspire 6530 for Xmas and glad I did. It provides me with some entertainment while I recuperate with this broken leg. My question is this, is it bad to not use battery power very often, it is plugged in 99% of the time. Will that shorten the batterys life? I know they are expensive so I don't want to have to buy one in case I do have to rely on it.

no its a myth that batteries overcharge or anything, lithium ion doesnt hold a memory charge or anything, in fact the more you discharge and cycle the lesser the life becomes, just use it like you would a computer.

ive been using different laptops for 5 years and batteries are the least of your worries
