I have Dell laptop and I'd like to know can I leave the charger plug in my computer all the time even though the battery is fully charged?

We must have some hundreds of Dell laptops that are left plugged in for years.

Yes, a decade ago this was a problem but today it should be fine unless the laptop has a defect.

To insure a better battery life, Try to unplug the battery while it gets 100% charged up. because when the battery is fully charged its power life gets damaged if you kept on providing energy with the plug.
i was doing it the wrong way and it cost me 2 hours of my battery life! my battery used to last 4hours and now it lasts only 2 hours.
when u're able to use the plug remove the battery, thats the best way to insure a better battery life
