I'm not sure what this means.
Surely most people will use a laptop
(or indeed any device with a rechargeable battery)
if they have one?
What else would you do with it?

What I find amazing about this endless discussion
is that it must be the simplest thing in the world
for a lab to work out which usage gives the longest life.
On the other hand, it is difficult for a person with one
or even a few laptops to run an experiment on these lines.
