Battery Always Charging

I leave my laptop on and plugged in all the time. It has been charging all the time and never gets past 75%. It sits on my desk and plugged in all of the time and never runs on the battery. I don't care that it won't charge past 75%..
Is this something to worry about?

Nothing to worry about, unless you need to take with you, at which point 75% battery wont last very long.
Why not just get a new battery.

I don't ever plan to take it with me. The only time it would run on battery is during a power outage at which time I shut it down since I'm on DSL and the modem has no power either.
Thank you for your response.

Lithium-ion batteries in laptops are made up of a number of cells which degrade over time - so this is pretty normal.
