Prolong Your Laptop Battery Life

I found some good tips for managing your laptop battery. Too late for mine, the battery will run it for only 16 minutes.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

I've had mine almost 2 years in November. My notebook is always plugged in so I never have the battery in. I drain it down to about 30% and take it out, leave it in a drawer on my desk then once a month recharge it and run it back down to 30%. According to S.I.W it only has 4% wear so seam to work for me.
