Use FakeSlice to run off of external power and preserve battery health. : thinkpad
I had previously had a t420 that I used over the course of 7 years and needed to replace the battery once a year. As a result, one thing that always bothered by about the newer laptops was the lack of a removable battery. I just recently bought a t480s, which I use heavily for work, 1.5-2 full discharges per day which I thought would heavily wear on the battery. I realized that I was always near a plug and wanted to find a solution where I could run off of external power without using or charging the battery. At work there was always a outlet near by, and at home I have a Thunderbolt 3 dock.

After some digging, I found FakeSlice. It is a program originally designed to allow thinkpads to run directly off battery banks without charging the laptop but also works off of AC power. The creator is actually a redditor and helpped me with some issues setting it up. Anyways, I having been using the program for the last month and it has reduced my number of full discharges to once a week.

I dont know much about battery science but I imagine reducing the total number of yearly discharges from 500 to 50 would do a lot for battery longevity. I usually keep the charge from 30-60%.

I know this wont work for everyone, but hopefully some people will find this useful. Happy to hear your thoughts.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 review: the do-everything phone | Technology | The Guardian
It looks and behaves similarly to the Note 8 or Galaxy S9+ with Samsung Experience 9. There are a few useful additions for the stylus and large screen, such as the pop-out Edge apps, advanced split-screen multitasking and the ability to pop-out apps to run as windows over others – all features present in the Note 8.
