well,generally,we heard lot of ways,
But which is/are the correct ways to take care our laptop battery?

I heard people said.

Upon purchased of new laptop,u need to charge ur battery up to 7 and more hours. But i heard also,some people say,doing so is actually kinda damaging or shortening the battery life, so,hell knows which one is correct?

Another saying.
If u are using the wall plug/socket, then take out the battery.
How true is this?

Another unknown idea
always charge ur battery only when it reaches around 10%, charge till it full 100% everytime. Battery lifespan is counted by how many time u charge,perhaps 300 times plus minus.

so, i wish if u guys willing to share the tips to extend ur battery life and how lengthen its lifespan.

I think some traditional rechargable batteries need such tips, but mine is NiCad (or NiMH, can't remember) and doesn't need most (any?) of that. I'm not saying that those tips aren't valid, just that it depends on the type of battery.

thanks a lot!! sfeli for that wikipedia link, new term for me, memory effect.
i think i found the answer, charge it when it reaches 10% to 20% might be good. and drain it using the bios utility every 30 charges.

I use a computerized battery charger/cycler on all my batteries.
It will run you about $100.00 to $500.00 depending on the options.
Since using this i have had NICD/NIMH/LIPO batteries for over ten years.
It seems like a lot to spend on a charger but i have thousands of dollars
invested in high tech batteries so in the long run it is worth it.
