    Hi guys
    i am new user of MBP, mine is Mid 2014 Retina with battery cycle count of 536, what is the best way to keep the battery healthy ?
    what is the best way to charge battery ?
    is it fine to use it until reach 5 % of battery and then charge it ?

    The only rule from Apple is to not store it with less than 50% charge, or something like that.

    I'd put it on charge when it got below 50% when possible.

    If not possible, I'd shut it down around 10-5%, then recharge as soon as available.

    Or... leave it on the charger, but... perhaps every 3 days or so, take it OFF charging and run it down to 50% (as above).

    Modern batteries don't really need any specific usage pattern to stay healthy. I think the advice is just to use them regularly and as above don't store for long periods with a flat or full battery (somewhere around 50%.)
