after calibration, is it still better to fully drain the laptop battery before recharging? or we can charge it whenever we want?

Lithium-Ion batteries are fine to charge at any time, it makes more sense to charge them whenever you can instead of draining them because you will use less cycles and give your battery a longer life. Just drain it fully once a month or so to keep it tip-top.
