Hello, I was wondering if any of you guys had any tips for healthy battery usage. I am wondering about this because a month or so ago I had to replace the battery in my MBP as a result of failure and I only had the computer since Sept. '06. The cycle count was somewhere in the 80's or 90's, and that seems rather premature. I almost always do the battery calibration every time I use battery power, i.e. start with a full charge, use the computer until the battery runs out and goes to sleep, then charge the battery while it's asleep and not use it until fully charged. Is this a proper way of ensuring good battery health? Thanks!
