If you often have a long time using the Laptop, then it is often to charge the Laptop even though the battery is full. Some people think if the condition is dangerous, as it will damage or reduce the battery life. Therefore, some Laptop users choose to remove the battery when they want to use it for a long time.
If the Laptop battery is removed, then of course it must be connected directly to the power source using the charger cable to be switched on. However, what is less realized is that removing the battery and connecting the Laptop directly to the power source is more harmful.
The danger or risk that can arise will no longer occur only on the battery, but also to other components. For example, to important components such as Hardisk, RAM, Processor, and other hardware components. Moreover, if the charger cable that you are using is not the original charger cable from the Laptop, but use a KW cable with poor quality. Of course the damage that will be inflicted can be worse and faster. (Read ALSO: 3 mistakes Laptop care to avoid)
Danger (negative impact) using Laptop without installing battery
If you often use laptops for activities by removing the battery, then you should stop. Your treatment will shorten all components of the Laptop hardware, not just the battery. As a result, your Laptop will become more quickly damaged and can no longer be used.
Many components will be affected when you use your Laptop without installing a battery. These hardware components will be more quickly damaged due to unstable electrical power flow. Here are the dangers or negative impacts of what will happen to your Laptop component if used without installing the battery.
1. Motherboards become more quickly damaged
The most immediate component that receives the impact of a Laptop powered on without a battery is the Motherboard. Motherboard is a hardware component of Laptop that has the task to deploy electrical power to other components. That is, the component that first receives the electrical power is the Motherboard, then deployed to other components.
It has become a common secret that components on Desktop PCS and laptops have a difference. In terms of size, where the Laptop components are smaller, the electrical power on laptops and Desktop PCS is also different.
If you use a Desktop PC, of course realize that the CPU used is power supply. The function of power supply components on Desktop PCS is to maintain stability in the electrical power received from power sources. So, before the electrical power is streamed to the computer component, it has been done filtering or balancing to allow the electrical power to get into each component of the computer in a stable state.
On laptops, the battery function is essentially not just for storing power. The battery will also perform current filtering so that the electrical power is streamed to the motherboard in a stable state. So, if you turn on laptops often without installing batteries, then the electrical power received by the motherboard is unstable, it could be redundant. Consequently, if the electrical power received by the motherboard is excessive, then of course it will result in damage, either sooner or later.
2. Can damage Processor, Hardisk, RAM, VGA, and more
Damage that can happen if you use a Laptop without installing a battery not only on the motherboard. Other hardware components may also experience faster damage. These components are like Processor, Hardisk, RAM, VGA, or any other.
As discussed earlier that if using a Laptop without batteries, the electrical power received by each component may not be stable. This condition will certainly shorten the lifespan of each component due to excessive power received.
Not only that, if you connect the Laptop to a power source directly using the charger cable, the Laptop will die immediately when the power goes out. The situation will also be damaging to the hardware components of the Laptop. The condition in which the component is suddenly lost power while processing will certainly reduce the lifespan of the component. Especially on Hardisk that can be permanently damaged if suddenly the power is disconnected while reading or writing data.
3. Inverter System not working
Another problem that can happen if you use a Laptop without installing a battery is the inverter system will not function properly. The inverter system has the role to regulate the electrical voltage that enters the Laptop. This inverter system is located in the Laptop battery.
That is, if you remove the Laptop battery and connect directly using the charger cable, then this inverter system will not be able to do the role. And, as said before, if the inverter system does not work, then the electrical power that goes into the Laptop is unstable and can damage the Laptop components.
4. Direct Laptop off when power outages
The impact that will be seen directly if you use a Laptop without installing a battery is the Laptop will die immediately if the power goes out. If you are connecting directly using the charger cable, when the power outage, the Laptop will die immediately due to the absence of the battery as a power storage.
If the Laptop turns off suddenly, it will be able to damage the hardware component due to interruption while still performing the process. The impact may not be felt at the moment. However, if the condition occurs continuously, then your Laptop will be more quickly damaged. Not only that, while you are doing important work, you will not have time to store it first.
5. Electrical short circuit can occur
At its use in everyday life, the electric short circuit can certainly happen. However, if you are using a Laptop with an electricity supply from the battery, then the possibility of electric short circuit is very small. Unlike if you are using a Laptop with a supply of electric current directly from the power source using a charger cable.
If you are connecting directly from a power source into your Laptop using a charger cable, then it is likely that the electrical short circuit is very large. This is of course because it can be influenced by other electronic devices located around you.
If your Laptop has an electrical short circuit, then this is the most dangerous impact compared to the previous points. Not only does it crash, your Laptop will burn too. In fact, it can explode and will burn items around it, and endanger the safety of its users.
That’s 5 hazards or risks that can happen if you use a Laptop without installing a battery. So, if you are considering removing the battery for longer battery life, it is advisable to keep it installed. Moreover because laptops nowadays already have the ability to stop the battery charging when the battery is full. If you keep using the Laptop by connecting directly from a power source using an adapter cable, then the damage will occur much larger.
