But that's the thing, "smart" software can be set in such scenario to essentially not use the battery

Yes, when kept in warmer environment of a laptop it will dissipate slightly faster; overall being recharged more; but nothing too dramatic. Especially versus the perks of built-in UPS (and I write it especially from the point of view of "average user" who seems to have a hard time protecting (saving data, for example) against sudden power loss, and we are supposed to "get their data back" after the fact...)
