There's no need to do the calibrations anywhere near that often. Once or twice a year should be sufficient for most users.

The bottom line is fairly simple: if you use your battery a lot, you can expect to replace it at some point in your machine's lifetime. If you don't use it a lot, you probably won't.

When you DO use the battery, it's probably best to let go down as far as possible before plugging it back in. You don't have to do this every single time, but at least occasionally you should do that.

I will never understand this mentality that seems to feel that computers OUGHT to be complicated and difficult and that if they're not we should deliberately make them more so.
