    Is it ok to leave the power plugged in most of the time, or should i take it out once the battery is charged? Will leaving it in and overcharging make the battery not hold a charge after awhile? thanks.

    It's OK to keep it plugged in overnight, but don't keep it plugged in for much longer than that regularly. If you do, it could lose some capacity, but it would take a really long time for that to happen.

    You can leave the adapter plugged in. Just make sure you "cycle" your battery once a month.
