    most of the time i keep it plugged in, but once a month i do a full discharge

    some ppl say you should reset the PMU, but i dont.

    My battery is doomed to destruction - I discharge it about 70% of the way almost every day, and it is charged and discharged randomly over time. :D

    A year as of November - I still get a good three hours of pretty intensive use out of it though. :)
