What exactly is a battery cycle?
I just bought a mac book air yesterday and charged it once over night. earlier it said (istatpro) that I had 2 cycles, now it says 3. I havent put it on a charger other than the one time.
When you guys use your laptop, specifically the air, do you unplug it or leave it plugged in, which is better? Since its internal I dont know how the software charges it and if its better to leave it plugged in or keep draining the battery
A cycle is a battery going from 100% down to 0, so using it on battery more uses more cycles, partial cycles also add up.
so keeping my macbook air plugged in all the time wont effect the battery?
I know other laptops they say to kepe the battery removed when you are plugged in, but thats not an option on the air
Please read User Manual there was define Battery Cycle. and how it use.
ISTAT NANO ROCKS.
Just installed it on my macbook. It's rad.
I installed the Pro but I cannot see it in the Menu Bar, is there a way to setup this up?
I don't know, mine is in my dashboard.
Figured it out. istat pro is only for Dashboard. I went back to their site and installed the Istat Menu for 10.4.11 (TiBook user); that solve my issue.
Cool dude. I was wondering wtf, where is the option? LOL
