    What is the best way to save battery on an old laptop

    lithium cells keep better when not fully charged.. some modern laptops have a max charge setting.. never go higher than 60% is a common one for laptops that spend most of their life plugged in.. leaving a laptop always plugged in with a fully charged battery is a worst case scenario.. trog
