I used to think overcharging was a thing. I was thinking about getting a laptop (Alienware 17) and keeping it plugged in all the time and then taking it with me occasionally, and now I'm 1 step closer. Can anyone do some research about the Alienware 17 R4 battery to see if it can be plugged in 24/7?

When you leave your phone changing all night, every night, the battery gets lazy. Which means that it gets used to being always charged and when you suddenly stop changing it so much, the battery will act weird. For example, the battery percentage shown in the top will mostly be incorrect, so your phone will shut down when not fully empty according to the battery percentage. Also your battery will drain much quicker then normal. So that myth is very true.

On paper, overcharging does not hurt. In reality, the safeguard mechanisms often fail, and the battery becomes weaker. Moreover, phone companies may employ hidden programs, which kicks in just after two years, and battery will drain fast. Phone companies want you to buy battery every two years.

One myth is that android is the best when iOS is the best

IOS closes apps way to fast, (example) I use YouTube then go open my camera for a picture taking less than 30 seconds. Come back to my browser and it is completely closed out making me have to start again. It closes out everything even if you just lock your screen for a few minutes.

What is that hair though
Woke (4 months ago)
it is true that you dont need an expensive hdmi, the image quality will be the same, but the same cannot be said for durability. im still using a 5 dollar cable i got off amazon over a year ago. and it works fine. though, one of the ends of the cable needs to be in a certain position to not get green lines. so a slightly more expensive cable would do you a fair bit better. but in terms of video quality ? there is absolutely no difference. like Austin said, just marketing

heat does wear down the processor so don't leave your computer on, or play over intensive games. If you run electricity through metal it gets hot, so even running your computer can wear down the life span of a processor. Although it is fine to run your computer at 100+ degrees, if you want your computer to last much longer, keeping it cool is a good choice.

A Friends of me really thinks that Intel Processors are bad because they use less Watt than AMD ( not Ryzen) and therefore they have less power... poor Guy.

about the hdmi cables, that is not entirely true. When I first got my ultrawide monitor, I used the cable I already had and it wouldn't display in the correct resolution. I tried changing a bunch of settings and nothing changed, but then I changed cables and voile, it worked perfectly. Not necessarily that you need an expensive cable, it's just that there's more to it than "it works or it doesn't"

My aunt told me a myth that if you drain tour phone's battery more, means you have a healthier battery life.....
Captain Unplugged (10 months ago)
The truth is that when you leave your phone charging overnight, it doesn't damage your phones battery but it will damage your charging plug. If the phone is 100% charged and it slows down the rate of charging, the plug thing Collects electricity more than the phone so it will cause your plug to heat up. If you do this repeatedly you might end up having to buy a new One. I experimented this on my own so trust me.
