    My M18x battery is about 2 years old with no signs of degradation yet. I still get about 5:15 running on IGFX and it shows like 5-6% wear. I never remove it except when I need to disassemble the system. It stays plugged in 99.9% of the time. It's only unplugged when I go on a business trip or move it from room to room. Most modern laptop batteries (LI-ION) are adversely affected by discharging and recharging cycles. The more frequently they are discharged and recharged, the shorter their lifespan will be. They effectively "wear out" from these cycles.
