Default Laptop battery life

Is it damaging to a rechargeable Li-ion battery to leave it connected to the power supply for long periods of time?

No. Lithium ion batteries do not have the 'memory effect' that old sytle batteries have. The lifespan of a lithium ion battery is only about 1.5 to 2 years though.

Best practice is to only have it plugged in when using it, but as stated earlier supposedly li-ion batteries don't suffer from the memory effect.
