    Question Dell Vostro 1015 battery

    I have a Dell Vostro 1015 laptop which is 6 years old. The battery is so dud that a red cross is on the power icon on the task bar. Off power the battery lasts about 15 minutes. As I hardly ever need to use this laptop unplugged, is any harm being done by leaving the dud battery in? At least it would give me time to shut down in the event of a power cut.

    It should be fine, and as you say it would give you a few minutes of grace in case of being unplugged
