I've recently purchased my brand new Macbook Pro and I am really glad I went with the Pro. It's a great laptop.



I've come to a concern about how to properly charge my Macbook's computer to obtain the maxium battery life expectancy with

the best healthy methods to make sure I don't mess up my battery.

I have a Macbook Pro Late 2013 - Retina Display.



Im in college so I sometimes take it with me to school, I surf the web, youtube, play 1 online mutiplayer game, play music and also write documents and some powerpoints.



I would like to also know when to have it plugged in into an outlet and have it charge while in use and when not to have it plugged in.


Should I let it drain all the way down to 0%?

Charge it only at night?

When should I completely charge it to 100%

Do I keep it plugged in while playing my online game or working on school stuff?

When it is ok for me to unplug my laptop and use all the stuff I need to use it for?

Do I keep it plugged in all the time into an outplug?


If someone would just please take the time and just anwser this questions for me I would greatly appreciate it!

Take you for your time if you do.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mavericks (10.9)
