I remove the battery after it is fully charged for my new laptop.
If I know I will be taking it out with me, then I'll stick in the battery about an hour before just to make sure the battery is topped off.
In the event i don't need to take my laptop out with me, then I'll just make sure the battery is charged to full capacity once a month.
Thank you!. I know my laptop will be sitting here until september when school starts so I guess I will remove the battery!
