So I have a new MacBook Pro Retina 13", and I was wondering, something I have always wondered... how do i preserve the battery life of my mac best?
Some people say you should let it run out of battery (almost) and then recharge until 100% and then unplug again until almost empty, and so on... (I am not sure if this is right or not, if it won't use up all the battery cycles too fast, etc.)
Some other people say that when you work on a desk for a long time it is best to leave your mac plugged in all the time, only unplug when needed (with, of course letting the battery uncharge once or twice a month and recharge), but other say you should not let your battery plugged when it's already full cause it will damage it.
And finally I have heard you should never ever when possible let it drain only partially and the charge only partially, it should only be charged when almost empty and should charge until full... (although there is other oppinions that say this doesn't matter)
So as you see, pretty much every opinion I have read contradicts the other ones, so... anyone who can explain me how this works really?
And... I have only used my macbook for 5 days and on CoconutBattery it already says Design Capacity - 6600 mAh Current Capacity - 6432 mAh (97%). How is this possible? It already lost 3% of its capacity in 5 days of use!?
I appreciate your answer enormously.
