That's outdated advice.

The fully discharge advice is for NiCAD and NiMH batteries which haven't been seen for decades in laptops.

Please update your knowledge base.

There is a reason to do a full discharge but battery life span is not one of them.

1. Don't drop it.
2. Don't step on it.
3. Don't spill on it.

It's all common sense yet you see spill and drop damage a lot.

That advice looks outdated.

Long ago when battery management was terrible you would do that. Today we have had laptops plugged in for 5 years and find the battery loss is one to a few percent.

To keep the battery for a long time, it's easy. Use the laptop on mains power except when you can't.
