    Is it better to keep the charger in after a completely charged or pull out the charger. Basically I'm wondering if the power is pulled from the UPS after the battery is completely charged or is it still constantly charging the battery.

    It'll stop charging when the battery is full. So no fear of overloading.

    So basically its running power off the charger afterwards, so if the computer is idle, its better to leave it plugged in?

    I've kept the charger attached as much as possible, b/c I've had my previous MB run out of power and wasn't able to recharge for about three hours. Only three cycle count, but that's just me.
