when it's on AC power...it's too late now! battery is fucked. 100 euro for a replacement. why did nobody tell me!!!!!
this explains so many things :(
looking around on the internet and many people seem to suggest leaving it in...CONFUSED.COM
about putting batteries in the fridge and was thinking of posting exactly the same words...FUCK SAKE LIFE
I only learn this recently, that laptop batteries can only be recharged 200-300 times...
this is an absolute outrage
of inbuilt obscolescence cooked up by those evil corporations. let's take the motherfuckers down
It is shocking. I only came across this when perusing the new MacBookPro, which is very sexy...

Only prob is my AC adaptor falls out reeeeeeeeeeal easy. So might just put it back in.

i had mine a good 2 years
it's like a new pc
that I have a remote control for my laptop after just pressing something bizarre and the remote came out. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!
(i did use it for a few months leaving it in when plugged to the mains though, before my big sister told me its nnot good for it)
So i whipped it out
