There is no best-use case.
If you want the most stable measurement, it is recommended that you turn "battery saver off". This is one of the preferences you can set in FieldFox. Turning battery-saver off shortens the battery life, but gives you a more stable measurement.
When FieldFox is connected to AC, it does not use the battery. So you can take the battery out and leave it on your desk. Though I have to say, I don't do this. I just leave the battery in. I seem to be able to get about two years' worth of time out of my FieldFox batteries, though I use my FieldFoxes constantly.
The battery is a standard lithium-ion battery and you can look up best practices for Li-Ion batterise, similar to those in many laptop computers. Storing it not fully-charged and away from heat, room temperature or a bit cooler, will make it last longer.
Though the cost of a FieldFox battery (N9910X-870 at $153) is so small compared to the analyzer that it's easy just to have a spare battery around.
