Laptop Battery

May I have some advice here please,It's about my laptop and the battery The laptop is connected to the mains power supply most of the time and use it on the battery now and again,Now to the question is it advisable while the laptop is running from the mains power is it okay to leave the battery in place or would it be best to remove the battery while running from mains.
Hope that I have put the question plain enough.The Laptop is an HP Compaq.

With many thanks

its not recommended for extended periods of time if you want to preserve the battery life.
when a battery fully charges it stops charging. then naturally it will discharge very slowly over time. this will cause it to start charging again. say frpm 99% to 100%. this will count as one charge cycle.

let this happen enough and it will severly lesson the battery life.
this also is worth noting if you leave it plugged in over night while off.

to condition a battery properly charge it fully, run it on battery until its at 20% or less then charge it.

But its not dangerous if thats the worry.
