I recently bought macbook aluminum.

and recently I removed the battery because I would be using it without moving for 2 days or so. But then whenever the magsafe adapter is accidentally removed, it turns off (obviously) and I'm scared if this will cause my laptop to hang/freeze in the future. What must I do?

and a while ago, firefox was a bit lagging, I dunnoe if it is due to the website I'm visiting.

I'm just worried. I hope someone could help me.

Your MacBook will not run properly without a Battery ~ Please Leave it in.

Apple have also stated that you will only be able to use about half of the processor speed without a battery connected even when using Power. So everything will lag.

Have fun with your Mac but leave the battery where it belongs

Oh, okay thank you very much!

I read somewhere that if I use too much battery, the battery will wear off that's why I removed it. I'll put it back after I post this! Thanks!

Here is some info from Apple about caring for your battery. Also check the link on that page about calibrating your battery. Apple recommends the calibration once a month.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
