Hey guys,

Had my MBP 17" since the 15th and im just wondering whether its ok to leave it plugged in or is it best to fully charge it, unplug it and discharge the battery then plug it in again giving it a full battery cycle all the time.

Does the power just bypass to the components after the battery is full? Or does it go through the battery the whole time not giving the battery a cycle of discharging and charging?

Many thanks in advance!

As Dr Jones says. I have had mine run through the mains since I got it. I think i recall reading somewhere that they recommend letting the battery drain once a month.

Thanks guys!

Read the link and it says that i should keep the juices flowing so i reckon i should use it disconnected from power every 2 weeks or more etc.

I can always replace so its ok!
