    Power Always Plugged In !!
    Hi guys ..

    I have a MacBook pro, is it ok to keep the power always plugged in when using the laptop or this would harm the battery ( always fully charged ) .
    I usually remove the power once a week and use the laptop to empty the battery then re-charge again .

    Thanks ...

    Apple recommends that you fully discharge the battery periodically, to the point where the machine goes to sleep. Then allow it to fully recharge without using it. This is referred to as "calibration".

    I usually remove the power once a week and use the laptop to empty the battery then re-charge again .

    Once per week is a little too often IMO. I'd limit it to a full deep discharge to once per month.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
