I think that instead of having 2 separate tags, questions about laptop batteries should be tagged with instead of having a special tag.

I think it would be better to have all the battery-related questions in one tag. Many people use the tag for laptop questions anyway.

Can we merge into and synonymize?

not all battery questions are about laptop batteries. Changing the battery of a Logitech M705 mouse –  Sathya Dec 29 '12 at 11:22

@sathya Hm, I dont see why this should affect the OPs suggestion. He just wants to split all [laptop-battery] questions into [laptop]+[battery]. After that he wants to remove [laptop-battery], which I think is a good suggestion. Am I missing something? –  nixda Dec 30 '12 at 13:20
    
@nixda hm, I read it the other way around- my bad –  Sathya Dec 30 '12 at 14:59

+1 Support. People can still search for the intersection of questions tagged with both laptop+battery using the techniques at meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/5229/… . –  David Cary Jan 1 '13 at 13:47

Given that there doesn't seem to be a compelling reason not to merge, I would go ahead and merge + synonymize.

There's also x130 and x10 we might want to take a look at.

For the time being, I left be.

I think we can also merge [battery-life] - what do you think? –  tempy Jan 22 '13 at 15:32
