    That makes the batteries last longer right?

    If you leave it plugged in after it fully charges, it stops charging. It will not overcharge. Run on battery whenever you need to and plug it in whenever you can. You can plug or unplug at any time, regardless of the charged percentage. Just make sure you don't run on AC power all the time, as your battery needs to be used regularly to stay healthy. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:
