View Full Version : How to save battery

Nov 4, 2010, 07:27 PM
I am wondering-how do you best save the battery?

I am using my MBA as a primary computer. Should keep the MBA always plugged in or let the battery run down and then charge it and then run down again?

If you always keep it on AC power than doesn't the battery still lose its power?

Maybe this can help:

If you can use the MBA with a power adapter, use the power adapter, just calibrate it once a month.
