    Just purchase a MSI GE72VR 7RF APACHE PRO, and i realise that the battery is none removeable. Will it effect the battery while keep charging while gaming or battery life will died fast?

    Because i always plugin the charger all the time in gaming, scare will ruin the battery very fast

    There is no correct answer for this, as far as I know. I think in this day and age, power and thermal management have become pretty advanced. So you really needn't worry about it.

    Just checked your laptop on google, it's worth like 1600 euro so you must have the nvidia 1060. It's made for gaming, so it should have a quality battery. I never dealt with a non-removable battery devices, some smartphones have that too. It kinda sucks.

    Generally you can expect at least 3 years of life from your battery no matter how you use it (plugged into the wall at all times or proper power cycles). Overcharging is no longer a thing and batteries are usually in a separate thermal "chamber" from the rest of the system so overheating is much less of a problem.

    For a more realistic expectation, look at the warranty that comes with the laptop and how many years try cover it for. The standard is 1 year (although consumer trade act covers you for 6 years), but they sometimes mention 3-5 years for certain parts which may include non-removable battery servicing.
