comment Does dirty power shorten the life of a laptop battery?
@ThomasJensen In other words, quality of mains output and quality of laptop external power supply output can be entirely unrelated. A good supply can provide clean power regardless of what's in mains, and a bad supply can provide dirty power regardless of what's in mains as well.

comment Does dirty power shorten the life of a laptop battery?
@ThomasJensen No, I meant the input of the laptop itself, connected to the output of your power supply--not your mains. I would get rid of it. I don't think anything has happened to your laptop yet, but supplies of such incredibly horrible quality are prone to catastrophic failure.
