One thing you don't mention here is the question of whether there is any
point in running on the battery if there is a mains socket nearby. My
colleagues will happily flatten the battery while the laptop is within reach
of the mains, which IMHO is plain stupid. Surely it's better to have the
battery trickle charging via the regulator in the laptop rather than go
through a full discharge/charge cycle for no reason.
