With a Li-Ion pack you do NOT want to let it sit completely drained for an extended period of time. If it's an option, I'd leave your laptop plugged in and off, so that the battery remains conditioned. If that is not an option, then charge it fully and leave it.
Draining it completely and then not using it for an extended period of time will likely leave you with an impaired or possibly useless battery pack.
75-85% charge, store in a cool dry place
cool..two people saying close to the same thing. anyone else?
charge it, unplug and leave out of the sun.
I've heard 40% charge is optimal for when manufactorers ship items to stores/consumers. It's the best for battery health, I'm pretty sure it was 40, coulda been 60% lol
try google on that
either way, if you keep it around 50% you're good
