    I recently got a brand new battery and charger for my MBP (2009, 13").

    I have read the Mac batteries have a chip inside that takes care of charging, etc.

    My question - when my Mac is "charged" (which, in my experience, is anywhere from 97% to 100%), if I remove the charger for 10 seconds, then put it back - is this bad for the battery?

    This happens to me 3 or 4 times a day, as I have to move my laptop in my work.

    Read the CHARGING section of the following link. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    You copy+paste this in every thread that contains the word "battery".

    The answer to my question is not in your linked FAQ.

    That's because it answers nearly every battery question asked. That's the point of creating a FAQ (frequently asked questions).
    Yes, it absolutely is.

    Answer is no, it's not bad for the battery at all.

    My question wasn't about when it stops charging, but I suppose that is related to taking out the charger when it is charged.

    Thanks for the answer :)
