    A laptop’s battery totally running out would be similar to working on a desktop computer when the power goes out. You’ll probably lose any work that you haven’t saved (like in a Word document for example).

    To use the laptop again, plug it back into the wall and let the battery charge up a little bit before you use it again. Having your battery totally run out shouldn’t cause any serious damage to your computer, but you should always save your work and shutdown the laptop correctly if your battery is running low.
