You are watching: 3-cell, 41 wh lithium-ion prismatic battery
My past laptops I have owned have had short life spans. I have heard many opinions on how to use each battery. Some say to keep it charging all the time, some say to remove the battery or only use the battery when electricity is not available. Now this new Laptop has this lithium-ion prismatic battery, I have no idea how to use it. Anyone with any ideas. Thanks in advance shot

Cylindrical batteries have gone out of favor a while ago. The prismatic batteries are popular in laptops, tablets and phones. As they are more space efficient. They have been so for a while now.https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/types_of_battery_cellsThe same general rules apply for care. As they are generally difficult to access. Removing them would be impractical. Also leaving them out on a shelf for when power is not available is impractical. As batteries lose charge sitting around. You"d have to make sure to maintain charge.https://batterycare.net/en/guide.htmlJust use it every once in a while. Perhaps discharge it 30% every month. Don"t leave it sitting around in a hot place. Let the computer sleep for an hour before charging. If I recall correctly you want to discharge at least 20% before recharging. To minimize capacity loss.If you want to get really nuts about it. Go into the the advanced power settings. Set a performance cap for the CPU and GPU to prevent pulse and momentary heavy loads. For when the laptop is on battery power.https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/discharge_characteristics_liIf the battery is easily removed. Then by all means. Discharge it to 40% and store it in a cool dry place. If you are overly concerned about losing capacity.
