    While you can technically leave it plugged in, there are some things to know.
    Dealing with battery life and maintenance is a reality of our tech-obsessed world. Everyone wants something that can keep up with their device, and most people agree that it's not fair for a battery to wear out sooner than the rest of the hardware. Just look at what's happening with Apple and their #iPhoneSlow fiasco.
    Laptops, because of the amount of performance hardware inside, have some relatively beefy batteries. Technology is always improving, and where battery life used to be atrocious, we're now seeing batteries that can last far longer than the eight-hour workday. Just look at LG's new gram Z980, which manages to cram a 72WHr battery — delivering about 13 hours of life — into a device weighing just over 1kg.
    While in the past it was unwise and even dangerous to leave your laptop plugged into an external power source all the time, new laptops are mostly using either lithium-polymer or lithium-ion batteries that won't take more charge than they can handle. Still, there are a few things you should know about leaving your laptop plugged in.
