Does overcharging your Razer Blade kills battery life?

  1. I just started to hear this idea and want to make sure if it was true or not. (Sorry, I'm still pretty new on the concept of having a laptop) There is sometime on the Razer Blade battery icon will says its charging but other times, it would say that it's (plugged in, not charging). So I was wondering if keeping it charging even it's over 100% can ruin battery life or not?

    I apologize for my spelling/grammar errors.

    my laptop just stops charging when it's above 95%

    Yeah, the battery overheats and burns out. That's what happened to my old laptop. It came with a 9 hour battery life, but I would plug it in overnight and it would die after 2 hours.

    That is incorrect. Back in the day overcharging batteries were an issue, but modern lithium ion batteries have built in circuits to protect from overcharging. Unless the system malfunctions and the circuit fails to protect from overcharging (unlikely on a new product), charging overnight should not be a concern.

    Hmm, wonder why my laptop was like that then. Was great for the first few months and then battery life kept shrinking.

    Bit off topic and might be a bit of a silly question, but if overcharging is possible with the blade is overcharging also possible on wireless mice? (im thinking of buy a naga epic chroma to replace my naga hex so im pretty curious)

    Just follow these golden rules.

    How do I get the best life and performance from my Razer Naga Epic battery?

    Here are some tips to get the best performance from your battery.

    - For optimal charging, the Razer Naga Epic should be set to the "off" position while in charging mode.

    - Fully depleted batteries may not charge when the mouse is left in the "on" position.

    - The Razer Naga Epic uses a high performance Lithium Ion battery. Unlike NiCad batteries, Lithium Ion batteries will not develop any type of memory and there is no need to routinely fully discharge your battery. In fact fully discharging a Lithium Ion battery can result in damage to the battery. If you are not planning on using your battery for an extended period of time it is best to store your battery just below a fully completed charge. It is not recommended to store your battery in a fully depleted state.

    - To prevent a slow discharge of your battery it is best to always turn your Naga Epic to the "off" position when not in use.

    - Avoid storing your battery in excessive heat. Lithium Ion batteries prefer cooler temperatures.

    i doubt it'll be of any harm. The only thing I know is that over time, batteries get screwed up so that's why the hold is shorter as compared to before

    All batteries will worsen over time. There are steps to take to increase the longevity of lithium ions, which are listed in Burgz post about the Naga (which applies to other devices also). Essentially, try to never fully deplete the battery, if you're going to store an unused lithium ion battery, discharge some of the battery as a fully charged battery being stored for a long period of time can damage the battery, avoid heat and moisture.
  12. overtime they while worsen but i dont think it will be at much harm to overcharge a bit

    Yeah new batteries and laptops stop charging at 100% so you should have no problems. I know that my phone doesn't go all weird when I keep it plugged in. And I keep some devices plugged in plugged in whenever I am not using them and have had no issues.
