There are long discussions about how batteries work.

At the age I'm guessing this is, some try to discharge the battery to regain some life. But an old battery can cause the power supply or motherboard stress if the battery has issues. I have yet to see anyone discharge a battery unless the battery was old and failing. Seems a lesson is being learned first hand.

Wish there was more to the story.
