    Is my laptop at risk now?


    I seldom use my laptop, I remember the last time I use it was on April 2017, like 1.5 years from now. I then put it in a carry bag in a cool place always.

    However, the lithium battery wasn't removed.

    My question is
    1. Is this lithium battery at risk of "leaking" or "going wrong"
    2. In case it's "leaking", how can I know? Is there any sign? Will it damage my laptop?
    3. Any sign I can see if a battery is not working correctly or losing its durability?

    Heard some said keeping it 50% fully charged instead of 100% charged while storing and heard some said taking out the battery if the laptop isn't going to be used for long time.

    Now 1.5 years, kept in very good condition, but connected to the laptop, (NOT connected to the AC wall ) What do you think????

    A few days later I will try to use it again, at the moment, I am asking for advice. Thank you very much

    :)
